ADI’s Feasibility Project Leads to Mainstreamed Service
ADI is delighted that Airedale NHS Foundation Trust has main-streamed video technology developed from a feasibility project into the telehealth hub which was featured on the ToDAY programme on BBC Radio 4 on 09/09/14.
ADI led a consortium on the feasibility project which piloted the technology with Airedale NHS Foundation Trust to provide affordable in-home two-way video technology for patient to clinician consultations.
David Harson who led the project within ADI says ‘we are proud to have initiated and led the TV Phone Telemedicine feasibility project at Airedale Hospital from which the Yorkshire Telehealth Hub developed’.
In July 2013 the Yorkshire Hub was awarded 3-star ranking as a Reference Site of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing… the only site in England to get this rating.
The Tele-health Consultation System is a TV based video telephony solution, was developed in conjunction with a number of partners including Red Embedded Design, a Bradford based company that has been developing a TV-based videophone telephony service. Other partners include BTL, also a Bradford based technology company that is developing interactive e-learning applications for the service. The feasibility project was supported with funding from Innovate UK (formerly known as Technology Strategy Board) under their Assisted Living Innovation Platform programme.
