MALT – Mainstreaming Assisted Living Technologies
The MALT project has bought together academic experts from University of Sheffield, University of Leeds, University of Manchester and in relation to industry it has bought experts from the Advanced Digital Institute (ADI) together to work on 4 main work streams:
- Looking at the acceptance of the technology by patients
- How staff interact with technology
- Business models themselves
- Financial benefits of introducing tele-health
MALT has allowed to achieve understanding what the barriers were in relation to adopting tele-health at scale and looking at how these barriers can be overcome.
So the question is how does the Industry and NHS take the findings of the MALT project forward, especially in relation to the economic benefits?
