Alcove WINS DOUBLE at the 2022 Health Tech Digital Awards
Today at Alcove towers we are utterly delighted to have been the lucky recipients of not one, *but TWO* 2022 Health Tech Digital Awards. Yes, TWO!
Announced below we are so excited to reveal the categories we won, and want to thank the judges, our wonderful partner ‘Rethink Partners’ and the outstanding Councils who support us and have deployed our technology at such scale, that we are able to win awards like these!
Best Elderly Care Technology Solution: For our Contract with Suffolk County Council – called the Cassius Service. In May 2021, Suffolk County Council awarded a £15m contract to a care technology partnership with us and Rethink Partners to enable the quickest ever roll out of care technology on behalf of a local authority. Rethink and Alcove delivered mapping out, training and delivery in a record time which allowed the vulnerable residents of Suffolk to access innovative care solutions that allowed the person in need to stay at home, improving outcomes for people and delivering much needed cost savings for the local authority.
Best COVID-19 Solution for Safeguarding the Vulnerable: For our Alcove Video Carephone Implementation for Suffolk, Kent and Essex.
In March 2020, Rethink Partners, Alcove and Essex, Suffolk and Kent Councils launched a programme to deliver 5,000 Video Carephone devices to vulnerable people as part of their response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Within 16 weeks it had equipped over 5,000 vulnerable adults with Carephones, so that they could talk to friends, family, carers and professionals via when they were unable to meet due to COVID-19 restrictions. By the end of July 2021, the project had delivered 2,000 Carephones in Essex, 1,700 in Kent and 1,400 in Suffolk, allowing more than 1million calls to be made across the last 12 months and delivering over 5 million minutes of video for the most vulnerable since the rollout making Alcove the UK market leader in virtual care.
THANK YOU SO MUCH , we love you all.
