Doro continues its acquisition streak in the UK, acquiring the assets of Connexus Careline from Connexus Housing Group. Connexus currently provides services to local authorities, housing associations, the private sector, and charities, with about 25,000 telecare connections in the UK. Terms and timing were not disclosed. Based on the August count, this brings Doro in at over 250,000 UK connections. Doro’s acquisitions have been ElderCare UK [TTA 11 Aug], Invicta Telecare, parent of Centra Pulse and Connect [TTA 19 Sept 19], and Welbeing [7 June 18], Press release (PDF).
So many open questions… What are their future plans for integrating all these individual systems and different technologies? What will Doro UK represent in the market, now that they are second in the UK?
Tunstall Healthcare UK is also reminding local governments, health and social care leaders that winter is approaching, and now is the time to set up remote patient monitoring to connect to care the most vulnerable in cold weather, a factor magnified by their isolation during the continuing pandemic. Tunstall features several solutions in RPM which are mentioned in the release.
Editor’s note: this type of seasonal release was a staple for QuietCare when I was in marketing for our activity/temperature monitoring of those living at home alone. We also included a proprietary study made during winter (and later summer) among our client base. 1) It’s surprising that more RPM and telecare companies don’t take this approach, especially now, but 2) Tunstall could have made an even greater case for itself with some quantitative research stats.
Buddi is seeking a Sales Account Manager position to join their Health Sales Team based in the southern half of England. The particulars are here (PDF) including application and contact information. Thank you Fiona Carmichael of Buddi for reaching out to us! (If you have a position to fill, our listings are complementary.)
Mr. Paul Dixon has taken advantage of our open offer to Readers who are available to lend their talents to new or established companies in the healthcare or healthcare tech field.
I am a “tech-savvy” and experienced user training professional with extensive experience in providing training in a broad range of contexts and environments.

As I also have a background in management and leadership, one of my key differentiators is that I focus on behavioural change in staff, not just on “mechanical” user processes.
In addition to training, I can create a full range of user-focused training materials.

He’s available for short and medium term projects as a freelancer, or on-going user training on an ad-hoc or retainer basis. Contact him on (m) 07734 600950 (UK) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
