AI Technology Used To Support Dorset Social Care Patients

Share post:

New technology from British company Lilli is looking to provide innovation for those who have recently been discharged from the hospital and need support and care.

The company plans to use sensors installed in homes in combination with AI technology to track patient behaviour and identify potential health problems.

Lilli’s Chief Commercial Officer Nick Weston explained that devices will monitor measurements such as movement and temperature without cameras. Weston also said that each participant would have between six and nine sensors installed in their home to automatically register improvements in their personal independence.

Lilli believes it can reduce the number of support visits patients need each year by 700 hours and save £250,000 a year in costs for Dorset Council, the local authority that covers most of Dorset County.

Lilli’s system is also privacy-oriented as it requires the written consent of the registered patient or someone who has given their consent on behalf of the patient prior to installation.
