Sabarna Mukhopadhyay -CAL2CAL
CAL2CAL addresses the immediate needs of improved clinical efficiency and preventative care with bespoke solutions involving integration of existing systems in the NHS and use of mobile technology to allow information access at the point of care. The solutions are currently focussed on the care and monitoring of the elderly and the chronic disease management. The concept of single input and multiple use of the confidential clinical data is possible using standard based secured data exchange framework. The presentation will intend to highlight a couple of general issues highlighted in the NHS nationally and demonstrate the user friendly solutions that could be implemented phase wise. The advantages and benefits of the modular system would be the crucial point of discussion.
John Griffiths – MOCAD
John Griffiths developed MOCAD (Mobile Care and early intervention and Diagnostics), which is an Android/Cloud based integrated system that addresses the problems of Accountability, Lone Worker, Mileage and Efficiency within the Social Care community. Its objectives are to rationalize and make transparent the efficiencies mobile working can make in this somewhat unstructured and some say poorly funded area addressing assisted living and demonstrate its true worth to patient wellbeing and early / timely diagnosis by the NHS.
