The Telecare Equipment Prescription Guide (Telecare EPG) is an online knowledge-based resource tool for telecare professionals.
It provides access to independent and impartial expert-validated prescriptive guidance for telecare and related technologies and much, much more:
- Product directory of hundreds of products directly relevant to telecare services
- Product assessment guidance
- Product selection indicators and contra-indicators
- Product guidance tutorials
- Product group test reports
The Telecare EPG has been developed over a number of years and draws on T-Cubed’s background of developing market-leading telecare technologies and on feedback from delivering telecare support, advice and training to telecare service providers and commissioners across the UK.
Guidance is also derived from feedback from the subscriber base and from members of the Advanced Telecare User Group of the Centre for Usable Home Technology (CUHTEC).
It is being used by over 1,500 telecare practitioners across the UK to help them select the most effective products to support the independence of their service users.
