UK and Ireland home care provider Connected Health has signed a two-year deal with telecoms company Barclay Communications.

The new contract will see the company supply new mobile devices, tariffs and support to remote working staff, allowing seamless connectivity to Connected Health’s area managers and senior care staff facilitating client reviews and care assessments while on-site.

The new technology will also enable staff to manage their team of carers from any location.


The communication package had a number of requirements, including the need to integrate with its current Mobile Device Management (MDM) software.

Connected Health’s TEC Manager, Rebecca Vogel explained: “We deliver home care with innovation. Therefore, the new Android handsets will facilitate our move to homecare 2.0, providing a blend of technology alongside physical care.”

“The spec of the new handsets will enable our area managers and senior team to have important client information at their fingertips, enabling live care monitoring, integration with our healthcare technology devices in the home and virtual interaction – as well as enhanced communication with their team of care assistants.”

Speaking about the new partnership, Britt Megahey, managing director for Barclay Communications said: “It’s great to see how our services can help such an important provider in the community. We are delighted to welcome Connected Health as a Barclay customer and we look forward to building a strong partnership with them.

“Our team worked very closely with Rebecca from Connected Health to create a package that added real benefit to the end-users and had a positive impact on their clients going forward.”
