WHITEPAPER: Will Artificial Intellingence set the standard for falls detection?

Yesterday, we held a presentation evening and drinks reception, hosted by Stuart McMillan MSP, in the stunning Garden Lobby at Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh.

The networking event followed the theme ‘Prevention in action - effecting digital change' and included a number of presentations by representatives from The Digital Health & Care institute (DHI) and representatives from across Scotland’ s Housing Associations, Health and Social Care Partnerships and Edinburgh Napier University – as well as the launch of a new White Paper.

HAS Technology’s ARMED Team discussed digital strategy and shared exclusive information about the benefits and results that the ARMED solution for prevention and self-management is now showing.

Commenting after the event, Stuart McMillan MSP said:

 “It was a pleasure to welcome HAS Technology Group to the Scottish Parliament to share their research and work with other MSPs and relevant groups.

“There’s no doubt that prevention is better than a cure, and it’s crucial that HSCPs are able to make use of management systems that enable them to provide high-quality care right from the start, leading to cost savings and them being more efficient.

“Ultimately though, it’s in the interests of everyone for our health and social care sector to be focused on early detection and prevention. HAS Technology is helping us do that, so I’m grateful to them and all the representative organisations in attendance for sharing their innovations and ideas at Holyrood.”

Brian Brown, Director of ARMED, launched a new white paper:

WILL ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SET THE STANDARD FOR FALLS DETECTION? -Understanding how data plays a significant role in facilitating healthy ageing and independent living.

Brian said “The development of ARMED has allowed us to use AI in news ways to monitor frailty issues remotely and predict the risk of falls. This paper brings together information we have learnt along the way and evidence of deliverables. Prevention technology is still in the early stages of adoption but those willing to take the leap of faith are reaping the rewards.”
