Our new partnership with IoT Solutions Group is an important step towards entering the ‘Smart Healthcare’ space
By creatella-developers
Press Releases

We are delighted to announce the new strategic partnership we’ve formed with IoT Solutions Group [IoTSG], a specialist provider of Internet of Things [IoT] enabled solutions for both the public and private sector. This partnership will enable us to advance our product offering and expand into the ‘Smart Healthcare’ space, in line with growing market demands.

At Prism Healthcare, our mission is to transform the quality of life of people with health and mobility conditions by providing solutions that offer choice, value for money, and help make care delivery easier. In addition to this, one of our key strategic objectives is to express our personality by connecting with our market, prescribers, and customers. Our partnership with IoTSG not only demonstrates our commitment to our mission but will also help us to achieve this goal.

By securing IoTSG as our new technology partner, we will now be able to extend our level of care to end-users through the deployment of advanced, ‘in-home’ assisted living sensors, which cleverly monitor the daily activity of vulnerable people living independently.

This technology can be simply placed in the kitchen of a vulnerable person, where it discreetly and unobtrusively monitors their day-to-day activity. In response to any significant decrease in a resident’s activity levels, a customised alert can be sent to carers or family members, enabling swift and appropriate action to be taken and thereby significantly minimising the risk of severe injury or death.

Speaking about the new partnership, our CCO, Claire Litton, said: “We’re delighted to have partnered with IoT Solutions Group and to have their support in achieving our aspirations to move into the ‘Smart Healthcare’ space.

“The future of healthcare truly lies in technology like this, and we take pride in enhancing the products and services we provide for the benefit of vulnerable people living independently and their loved ones.” To find out more about IoT Solutions Group, go to https://www.iotsg.co.uk/.

Prism Healthcare ESG Statement/Policy
By talha-patelprismmedical-co-uk
Acquisitions

Being mobile and independent are a fundamental part of life. They allow us personal freedom, of movement and of choice and play a vital role in physical, mental, financial, and social wellbeing.

Therefore, living with poor or declining health and reduced mobility can often have a profound effect on the quality of life, of not just those directly affected, but their families, friends, employers, and the wider society.  

Prism Healthcare believes that despite poor health and limited mobility everyone deserves to live life to the full. Whether living at home or in long-term care facilities, everyone should have equal opportunity to be happy, healthy, and independent for as long as possible.

As experts in manual handling, pressure area care and specialist seating solutions, we manufacture and supply a broad range of products and services to health and care providers and their clients across the UK, and internationally through a network of distributors. We have a mission; to transform the quality of life of people with health and mobility conditions by providing solutions that offer choice, value for money, and help to make care easier.

In doing this we take our corporate responsibility seriously. We recognise we have a duty of care to operate in a responsible and sustainable way and we want to make a positive impact on the lives of our employees, customers, clinicians, clients and partners within our network and the wider society.

The Prism Healthcare Group ESG statement demonstrates our commitment to action, to integrate wellbeing, sustainability, and ethics into the culture and day-to-day activities of running the business. This is key to our success and is a focus for all employees.

We will develop a policy that defines improvements we will make to drive standards in three areas:

  • Environmental – how we will perform as a steward of nature
  • Social - how we will manage relationships with employees, suppliers, customers, communities, and the wider society
  • Governance – how we will hold our leaders to account through strict auditing and controls  

Environmental
We will work with suppliers, customers, and employees to reduce our impact on the environment by:

  1. Moving all fleet vehicles to hybrid or electric by 2030 and ensuring compatible infrastructure on all business premises.
  2. Developing products and services which reduce the environmental impact of our business activities.
  3. Promoting the use of digital technologies to reduce travel, emissions, and our carbon footprint.
  4. Investing in SMART Buildings to ensure we actively conserve energy and water and using the most sustainable energy suppliers
  5. Ensuring waste and recycling is managed effectively to reduce the amount going to landfill, achieving targets of internal schemes and accreditations from recognised bodies.
  6. Creating a group-wide employee forum to identify where positive environmental impact can be achieved. We will provide education and training where necessary, so they have the knowledge and tools.

Social
We will contribute to improving the wellbeing of society by:

  1. Releasing employees during office/working hours so they can participate in local community initiatives
  2. Using our platform and resources to support a charity, particularly those aligned to our mission.
  3. Supporting the economies and communities in which the business operates by employing local people and sourcing goods and services from local businesses.
  4. Actively supporting the health and well-being of employees, helping them to achieve a good work life balance with the opportunity to work flexibly.
  5. Being an advocate for equal opportunities and initiatives which promote a fairer society.
  6. Investing in training and developing our people, so they can progress and enhance their career prospects whilst employed with the Group.
  7. Benchmarking roles and paying all employees a fair salary.
  8. Creating a culture where inclusivity and diversity thrives, where everyone feels safe and there is zero tolerance for hate of any kind.

Governance
We will always act ethically and with integrity and will be held accountable by:

  1. Ensuring transparency through timely reporting of financial performance, objectives and strategies to stakeholders, customers, and employees.
  2. Adhering to robust policies and procedures in relation to corruption and bribery.

Acquisitions

Repose Furniture Limited (Repose) is the latest specialized healthcare product provider to join the Prism Healthcare family, hot on the heels of Harvest Healthcare, an organisation celebrated for its customer-first values and approach. Repose are one of the market leaders in specialist seating solutions, designing and manufacturing a full range of specialist chairs ranging from entry-level riser-recliners to advanced bespoke healthcare chairs. Repose owner and Managing Director Lisa Wardley will continue to lead the Repose teams, reporting to Neil Davis, Managing Director of Harvest Healthcare.

“We acquired Repose, attracted by their intimate understanding of their customers and their customer needs. Now part of the Prism Healthcare family, we can further broaden our offerings to our homecare and long-term care customers. Lisa and her team share the Harvest ethos of working in long-term partnerships with customers and suppliers, to support the delivery of exceptional resident and patient care, at an affordable price, and to try to make everyone’s lives a little easier.” explains Neil Davis, of Harvest Healthcare.

Lisa adds “Collaborating with our new colleagues at Harvest will enable us to build many new customer relationships whilst continuing to successfully serve our existing customer base.  Exciting times!”

Prism Healthcare is the group holding company that encompasses the subsidiary companies of; Prism Medical UK, Smirthwaite, Harvest Healthcare and now Repose. Today, their mission as Prism Healthcare is to provide specialized products and high-quality services across the UK – and the world – to a range of healthcare market sectors:

  • Homecare
  • Long-term care
  • Education
  • Acute care

Prism Healthcare’s services, products, and brands are many, varied, and cover the spectrum of care needed for all generations, from paediatric to the elderly.  Their focus is on delivering meaningful health and social outcomes, with a single-minded mission to help carers do what they do best, making care – and life – easier for all. 

As a UK manufacturer, service provider and inclusive employer, Prism operates from nine facilities across the UK. They enjoy deep rooted connections to each of the communities they are part of, which in turn provides opportunities for greater social engagement and interaction. “Understanding our social responsibility and positively impacting the lives of service users and their support circles is a significant dimension to the community services we provide,” says Emma Toas, Operations Director.

Of course, in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, with lockdown forcing limited-to-no contact with family members, never before has consistent, high quality care been more important to the lives of those who need it most. As Prism Healthcare CEO Stuart Meldrum reflects, “Covid-19 has presented us with more than a few challenges, but we’ve managed to support those that matter when it matters most. We are exceptionally proud with how our teams have supported OTs, care homes and services users in the best ways possible. Operating from multiple sites has meant that we can continue our mission – to provide choice and certainty, with a continuous and resilient service throughout the ongoing pandemic.”
