The Konnektis digital platform transforms care delivery, placing the person at the centre of their care, enabling better communication and collaboration among their support network, while enabling people to participate in their own health and wellbeing to the fullest extent possible.
Konnektis aims to be the in-home platform that records and shares the information that supports home care of older people, a growing multi-billion pound market driven by an ageing population and the need for integrated care services.
We do this by installing an accessible, secure and reliable hub in the home of the cared-for person that acts as the central point for the care network supporting them to access, record and share information. Importantly, because Konnektis is in the individual’s home, we ensure that they are able to participate in their care to the fullest extent possible and that the support that they receive is holistic and truly person-centred.
Konnektis is securely hosted in the cloud, which enables data to be shared at the point-of-need with the full range of carers providing support, including health professionals, care workers and informal networks such as friends and family.
