Karantis360, a home care technology provider, has been appointed as a ‘Spark DPS’ supplier by the government’s Crown Commercial Service, enabling the public sector to have greater access to its solutions.
Spark is a new technology innovation marketplace that helps the government and public sector access new technology products.
Its Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS), uses a filter system that helps customers find relevant suppliers and focuses on emerging technologies predicted to have the largest impact over the next two to five years.
Helen Dempster, chief visionary officer at Karantis360, said: “We are honoured to be recognised as a Spark DPS, Crown Commercial Service Supplier. For practitioners and carers, technology in the home can provide the full picture of an individual’s health, enabling informed decision making that can reduce unnecessary activity – from home visits to ambulance call outs that place a strain on clinical time to care.
“Our trusted solution has the ability to do just that, and we look forward to supporting social care change-makers in the bid to improve the overall quality of care for all.”
Karantis360 uses IoT technologies to keep a watchful eye on the daily activities of vulnerable people being cared for in their own homes.
Running on the IBM Cloud, the solution uses AI and advanced analytics in conjunction with a network of smart sensors to identify and learn an individual’s typical behaviour.
Through a mobile app, the solution is designed to provide reassurance to caregivers and family members by delivering a complete picture of the wellbeing of the person in care.
Any changes in normal daily routine – which could point to a potential problem – will be indicated via automated alerts sent to the care provider and family members.
