Department for International Trade selects SafeTeam as one to watch for their Digital Health Playbook
20 October 2022
The UK Department for International Trade, the ministerial department responsible for promoting international trade has selected Glow’s SafeTeam Lone Worker system as one to watch for the 2023 Digital Health Playbook.
DIT Ministers include The Rt. Honourable Kemi Badenoch MP.
UK Government sees Digital Health as ” …the answer to many of the challenges facing global healthcare. The role of digital technology in realising the dream of accessible, affordable and sustainable care has grown across the entire range of health economies in not only serving current needs, but in building the basis for the healthcare of the future: personalised, digital by default and truly patient centric.”
The innovations in the Playbook can offer support to healthcare in a variety of ways from reporting data and using AI, pre-assessment, diagnostics and systems management to managing staff at scale and collaborating. There are solutions to support people at home with self-care apps and remote monitoring and consultation. And see how future tech may transform healthcare.
DIT promotes the UK as a global partner in Digital Health “Healthcare systems across the developed world are being overwhelmed. There are simply too many patients to see, not enough time to see them, too few resources to cope, with the added issue of less trained staff coming through the ranks.
The best of British digital healthcare is playing a crucial role in improving the reach, impact and efficiency of modern healthcare. The UK is at the forefront of transforming healthcare services by using digital solutions to prevent, diagnose and manage chronic illnesses more effectively, and in motivating patients to play an active role in managing their own long-term health.”
SafeTeam provides PPE for Lone Workers in busy NHS community trust settings, making teams safer and providing vital real time information which helps integrated services improve patient outcomes.
