Innovation Challenge Open Day - Remote digital alarm system
Please note this event is limited to 1 delegate per company.
Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership (GCHSCP) currently provide a range of services to some of Glasgow’s most vulnerable citizens with technology playing a key role. Existing technology used is predominantly analogue based, not interoperable with other technology available and limited in effectiveness in identifying risks that may arise when staff resources are reduced and services reconfigured. GCHSCP recognise that digital technology is key to transforming health and social care services so that care can become more person-centred.
GCHSCP’s remote digital alarm innovation challenge is being funded by the Can Do Innovation Challenge Fund and will be administered through Innovate UK’s Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI). The SBRI initiative provides successful companies with 100% funding for R&D costs and the ability to retain and exploit intellectual property developed.
The purpose of the event is to allow interested businesses to hear more about the innovation challenge, the SBRI process, ask questions to an expert panel and have the opportunity to network with other organisations currently working in, or looking to get involved, within the Health and Social Care Sector.
The aim of this Glasgow specific challenge is to support the development of a remote digital alarm monitoring system that assists with the management of risks in the home associated with people who have complex needs. The robust digital solution should allows for all users to live independently within their own home with reduced reliance on publicly funded interventions, with risk being highlighted remotely and subsequently linked in to the existing Telecare platform that is used in Glasgow, allowing GCHSCP to allow for the necessary response to be arranged based on the users personalised needs.
The Challenge is designed to support and de-risk innovation in the SME participants. It encourages an in depth exploration of the problem, the service providers and the end users.
The Challenge methodology seeks to create a relationship between Glasgow City Council and SMEs. It seeks to create new services or products, develop resilience and value through new IP in the SMEs.
Submissions from collaboration or consortium would be welcomed. The Challenge recognises the importance in a multi-disciplinary and creative approach to problem solving drawing best practice from across many sectors.
Applications must attribute at least 50% of the contract value directly and exclusively to R&D services. R&D can cover exploring solutions and design. It can also include prototyping and field-testing the product or service. R&D does not include:
• commercial development activities such as quantity production
• supply to establish commercial viability or to recover R&D costs
• integration, customisation or incremental adaptations and improvements to existing products or processes
The overall programme will be delivered over 2 phases.
Phase 1: R&D contract - A feasibility study resulting in a technical and commercial specification and detailed design package for a remote digital alarm monitoring system.
Phase 2: Prototype development and testing resulting in installation of the prototype to test functionality
