Proactive healthcare using artificial intelligence

Nectarine Health uses Artificial Intelligence to support a discreet, remote care solution. This talk investigates ways that AI can increase care provider efficiency, whilst improving care for the elderly. We will look at how new technologies can help determine the effects of a treatment over time. Looking at the importance of automated alerts in the case of dementia sufferers, demonstrating how this can be achieved in non-invasive and respectful ways.

Glenn Hapgood

How to introduce VR therapy to your care homes

In this session, Glenn Hapgood will be outlining a brief history of virtual reality (VR) in the healthcare space highlighting worldwide clinical trials and the applications for VR as an adjunct to traditional pain and anxiety management strategies. From this session, you will be able to understand all of the challenges you will face introducing VR into your care home and how to overcome them to introduce VR therapy.

The use of technology in care services

As we use more technology in care services, it’s vital that people’s information is kept secure, and that the systems used are reliable. This seminar will highlight key messages from the national research programme that is looking at how care services are using technology, what the risks are, and how services can best be supported to maintain security and good information governance as they use more technology in the future.

The role of technology in addressing Loneliness and Isolation

Kraydel is one of organisations working to address loneliness and isolation, primarily for those aged 70 and over. Strategies which focus on maintaining and improving social engagement have a direct and demonstrable impact on improving wellbeing. Alongside this, the ability to introduce relevant content (e.g. reminiscence content and gamification approaches) present an opportunity to influence the dementia pathway and areas such as mild cognitive impairment.

What can Artificial Intelligence offer to home care?

We at believe that artificial intelligence will change the healthcare. An artificial intelligence that analyses an elder patient 24/7 at home will notice even small changes in patient''s well-being. Just by letting AI to analyse the patient notes written by nurses and doctors, the AI will give the care organisation a real-time assessment of the elder patient’s state at home. It would be quite impossible for a human being to analyse such a vast amount of data. A self-learning AI with knowledge structures taught with real patient data will give essential information to the care organisation to help the patients live longer at home.
