The Digital Reality - White Paper

January 16, 2023

There is an urgent need for all housing and care providers to upgrade analogue grouped and dispersed systems, due to the digital switchover programme. At some point during the run up to 2025, traditional analogue systems will fail. Knowing where to go for help and advice is an issue.

A new white paper supported by Everon and Housing LIN with contributions from Openreach, BT, TSA and Eseye, has been launched for the sector. This paper:

  • Provides an up-to-date position on the digital switchover from the industry experts.
  • Pulls out the real risks for buyers and service users.
  • The opportunities of digital for housing and care providers.
  • Detailed Q&A with practical tips.
  • Case studies of those on the digital journey.

Peter Kerly, MD, Everon UK added “This paper has been drafted because of a growing need to better inform the sector about important changes impacting the digital transition. Following two successful webinars and a breakfast meeting with housing and care leaders, some key questions were debated and we hope this paper will help anyone looking for more support.”

    • Read more about DHSC’s policy paper on how they are working with the telecare sector to help prepare for the transition from analogue to digital networks.
  • Adult Social Care Discharge Fund - £500 million

  • The Scandinavian story

  • Broadband vs SIM
    • What’s the real benefits?

Housing and care providers have ageing stock and arguably the technology sector has been slow to provide a digital offering. Customers want choice, best of breed technology, open APIs, yet they need to understand the costs and don’t want a one size fits all approach. However, the first step in solving the problem is to recognise that it does exist.
