About Earlsfort

What’s it all about…

For older people who are leaving hospital, are ill or are simply feeling the effects of age, the ideal scenario is usually to be able to stay at home. Yet the lack of access to expert medical care can leave people feeling vulnerable and insecure in their own house.

This common situation causes stress for the patient and their family and it can block hospital beds and A&E services as people try to find the right care. Added to that, often there’s financial worries about the cost of a long-term solution.

Earlsfort eHealthwatch grew out of the realisation that health monitoring technology, combined with expert medical supervision, could offer significantly better quality of life to older and ill people than in-patient hospital care alone. The system enables the home carer to use technology to monitor health conditions such as blood pressure on a daily basis and to send this information instantly to a Health Centre. Measurements that are outside the normal range are assessed by the remote medical team and will trigger an appropriate medical intervention. This gives the elderly person the opportunity to stay at home with the peace of mind that expert care is to hand.
