Adepteq is a technology partner on The EU INDEPENDENT project that has developed the Connect-i Carers Portal as part of the Milton Keynes pilot.
The Milton Keynes INDEPENDENT service draws on collaborative work from four parties, CarersMK, ConnectMK, Milton Keynes Council and Adepteq.
Using a Carers support network maintained by CarersMK, it provides “informal care” for older people. The service provides refurbished PCs or laptops with web cams and renders access to a purpose built system “Connect-i” via a web browser, developed by Adepteq. Informal carers and people in need of care can track, monitor and request support or simply have video supported conversations with CarersMK, friends, family and others to reduce their isolation.
The service also highlights where earlier interventions and support may be required.
Adepteq is a Microsoft Cloud Accelerate Partner with competencies in Portals & Collaboration, Content Management, and Search. Recognised by Microsoft for it’s proficiency in deploying customised and bespoke solutions both on customer premises and in the cloud.
INDEPENDENT is a European pilot project that brings together twenty partner organisations across six European Member States. Jointly, they have set up an ambitious work programme which aims at better capitalising on information and communications technology (ICT) when it comes to supporting older people in their communities. The ultimate goal is to empower older people to maintain their independence.
A particular focus is on enabling, with help of technology, a better joining-up of social and health care services as they currently exist. There is also emphasis on strengthening the participation of the so called “third sector,” family carers and voluntary community workers who would otherwise not be in the usual information sharing loop.
This pilot project started in January 2010 and will end in December 2012. It is part-funded by the European Union’s Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme.

Broomwell Healthwatch provides cardiology diagnostic support to GP practices, enabling diagnostic tests to be undertaken in primary care and thereby enhancing patient care and reducing uneccesary referrals.
We interpret ECGs and arrhythmia tests (holters and event recorders) for GP practices. We also provide devices to undertake these tests in primary care.
Tests are sent by phone, email or fax to our 24/7 tele-cardiology centre from practices across the UK and are interpreted immediately/rapidly by expert cardiology clinicians.
A report is then sent back to the practice by secure email or fax and is easily integrated into the electronic patient record.
Consultant cardiologists set and monitor standards of clinical governance at the centre. The centre has successfully interpreted over 235,000 ECGs and arrhythmia tests for GP practices across the country enabling GPs to diagnose patients without referring them on to secondary care.
The resultant speeding up of the diagnosis of patients and reduction in costs and inconvenience have led to the service being commissioned by over 40 CCGs and PCTs.
