Care Home digitisation

  • Novel methods for care data recording with Aire Logic Ltd & Leeds City Council (LCC)
  • Combining multiple heterogeneous sources (voice, text & sensors)
  • Public (LCC) and privately owned care homes in Leeds region care for 1000+ adult residents, few make use of technology
    • Low digital literacy among staff.
    • Time issues – data input is too time consuming.
    • Convenience and ease of use.
  • Goal of project is to develop novel methods for care data collection & recording
    • Freeing up staff to spend more time ‘caring’ → improving care.
    • Evidence-based care → improving care and reducing costs
