Innovation 'Elevator Pitch':
Teleswallowing enables poorly people to be seen more rapidly by specialists and improves staff productivity threefold
Overview of Innovation:
Teleswallowing is an approach using technology whereby a speech and language therapist can run a virtual clinic to triage, manage and review his/her patients with eating and drinking problems (dysphagia). Teleswallowing Ltd staff train the carers within residential and care settings to be able to link remotely with speech therapists to provide rapid access to specialist skills to avoid unnecessary distress, avoidable deterioration and hospital admissions. Speech and Language Therapy is a scarce resource and the waiting lists to see a specialist are long. The use of Teleswallowing technology prevents vulnerable people suffering and can be used as an out of hours/weekend cover approach.
Stage of Development:
Market ready and adopted - Fully proven, commercially deployable, market ready and already adopted in some areas (in a different region or sector)
