The TSA represent both suppliers and service providers, commissioners and service users - our reach covers the full breadth of technology enabled care no matter what setting the service is delivered in or how. The TSA are pushing and pulling the sector - supporting membership to overcome challenges and drive standards whilst stimulating demand for TEC services amongst buyers, whether end users or public bodies.
Collectively we are stronger. Our campaigns are never run in isolation. We seek collaboration - from members, stakeholders, regulators, policy makers and service users alike. Everything we campaign for and promote is for the benefit of all.
By 2025, analogue telephone services will be switched off as the UK’s telecoms infrastructure is upgraded to digital connectivity. This shift has major implications for the technology enabled care (TEC) sector and the 1.7 million people who rely on telecare in the UK.
The paramount concern of TSA is that telecare and social alarm service reliability and safety is not compromised: that lives are not put at risk.
This campaign and White Paper calls on the TEC sector to get ready for the shift, upgrade their systems and recognise the opportunity digital connectivity represents to devise new service and product offerings
TSA recently brought leaders from health, care and local government together to discuss the role of TEC in population health management.
This report has been produced by the TSA - the UK's industry body of the TEC sector - and highlights the strategic priorities and direction that this exciting sector is moving in.
Through partnerships, networking, involvement with policy makers and commissioners and by listening to organisations and individuals from across the care sector, we have built up this unique helicopter view of TEC - taking in innovative solutions, the thinking behind them and the resulting real life impact on people.
This insight is offered for the benefit of TSA members and used in the strategic development of the TEC sector.
Telling the TEC Story is our campaign to spread the word of how TEC can transform lives. It’s not us telling the story. We are the conduit for best practice, forward thinking and real world impact and benefits.
