Tunstall Healthcare increases presence in China

Tunstall Healthcare has expanded its footprint in the lucrative Chinese market as a global provider of connected care and health solutions.


Having secured its first Chinese partner two years ago, the company has now teamed with Property development giant, Sino Fortune to launch telehealth program using its Integrated Care Platform (ICP) solution. Sino Fortune specialises in whole community development providing hospitals, education facilities, retail facilities and community and aged care.


ICP, which utilises Tunstall Healthcare’s Triage Patient Management software and myMobile app, will allow Sino Fortune to remotely monitor its residents’ vital signs and health conditions from their own homes.


The partnership was celebrated on 8 January 2019 when Tunstall Healthcare executives visited the Chinese coastal city of Tianjin for the launch of Sino Fortune’s Smart Senior Service Demonstration Area, which includes the telehealth program, a dementia centre, rehabilitation centre and stroke rehabilitation centre.


Tunstall Healthcare Global Technical Director Health and Chief Information Officer (APAC) Geoff Feakes, along with Tunstall Health A/S Managing Director Mads Wojtynka, said the partnership was a key moment in the company’s expansion strategy. This partnership was facilitated through our Tunstall Health Denmark office whose relationship with Sino Fortune goes back since 2016.


“ICP is already being used by a Chinese client and we have now customised the technology so Sino Fortune can also provide its residents with the health support and services they deserve,” said Geoff Feakes.


“We have done a lot of hard work to reach this point and it’s great to see we are starting to make in-roads in such a crucial market.”


The number of people in China may dwarf other countries but they are facing the same fundamental issues other nations are in relation to Healthcare,” he said.


Founded in the UK over 61 years ago, Tunstall Healthcare has operations in more than 50 countries, employs more than 3000 people and provides monitored assistive technology solutions that protect and empower millions of people around the world.


It opened its first Australian monitoring centre in Brisbane in 2001, with its Australasian operations now long established managed service providers to government, retirement villages and community care organisations.
