The UK’s Telecare Services Association (TSA) has today announced that it will be working with the Continua Alliance (CA) to develop a ‘Telecare over IP Use Case’. Press release (PDF)
Translation for the rest of us… ‘a scenario involving a typical user of telecare over an internet connection with the purpose of helping manufacturing and software companies match their product designs to meet the user’s requirements’. Let’s hope the US-dominated CA and the TSA sort out a joint definition of ‘telecare’ before they start – the press release already refers to “personal connected healthcare solutions”. Ah… but Tunstall will no doubt be on the working party as both a TSA and a CA member, so that will be all right then.
