Dear Karin Goodwin

 

Request for information: Technology Enabled Care and Support

Reference: argyllbuteir:13715.

 

I refer to your request for information which was dealt with in terms of
the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA).

 

I have provided the following information in fulfilment of your request:

 

1. Do you currently use technology enabled care and support in your local
authority? Yes

If so, when was this first introduced?

Prior to 2017, Telecare Service records were held on a standalone
database. Current service users records were migrated to our centralise
Management Information System (CareFirst), and based on this information
the earliest service agreement for Telecare services recorded is 1994.
With the integration of Health and Social Care in Argyll and Bute, a
specific Technology Enabled Care programme including Telecare and enhanced
packages and a range of other Telehealth programmes has been in place for
six years and is continually evolving.

2. How many people have received social care packages with an element of
technology enabled care and support:

a) since this was introduced?

Based on information from our MIS (CareFirst) there are have been 4804
people recorded as having received technology enabled care.

b) as of January 2022?

Based on information from our MIS (CareFirst) there were 2000 people
recorded as having received technology enabled care, as at 1^st Jan 2022.

3. How many of these packages are in relation to the provision of
overnight care?

All Telecare service users have access to a 24/7 service which can alert
key holders, responder services or emergency services to a clients need at
any time of day or night and levels of access will vary and depend on
individual circumstances.  We would not be able to provide data on the
levels of overnight care response, as this would be held on our third
party partner’s responder service management information system.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the way in which your request for information
has been dealt with you are entitled to request a review by writing to the
Executive Director Customer Services, Argyll and Bute Council, Kilmory,
Lochgilphead, Argyll PA31 8RT, or by email to [1][Argyll and Bute Council request email].

 

Your request for review must state your name and address for
correspondence, specify the request for information to which your request
for review relates and why you are dissatisfied with the response.

 

You must make your request for review not later than 40 working days after
the expiry of the 20 working day period for response to your initial
request by the Council, or not later than 40 working days after the
receipt by you of the information provided, any fees notice issued or any
notification of refusal or partial refusal.

 

If you make an application for review and remain dissatisfied with the way
in which the review has been dealt with you are entitled to make an
application to the Scottish Information Commissioner, Kinburn Castle,
Doubledykes Road, St Andrews, Fife KY16 9DS (Tel: 01334 464610) for a
further review. You can now do this online here -
[2]www.itspublicknowledge.info/Appeal.

 

You must make representation to the Scottish Information Commissioner no
later than 6 months after the date of receipt by you of the notice or
