Glasgow’s Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) recognises that digital technology can help make its services more personal. It can give people more power to manage their own health but it requires change and investment in new technologies and services.

Due to current market pressures in the social care sector there is compelling evidence of the need to develop care services using digital technology, known as ‘telecare’. This provides an opportunity for Glasgow to trial and, if successful, roll out a future proof digital solution. This solution should allow citizens to live independently within their own home and minimise the need for intervention or escalation by care agencies.

A number of existing solutions are already being used within the digital health sector. Examples of new technology includes ambient sensors, GPS trackers and video technology. Although these products work in isolation, they do not currently combine with the main telecare platform used in Glasgow.

This is phase 1 of a 2-phase competition. HSCP expects to fund up to 5 projects for up to 6 months. Phase 2 is dependent on the success of this phase. Only successful applicants from phase 1 will be able to take part in phase 2.
