Tunstall and MedicAlert partnership connecting care for clients


Tunstall Healthcare and the MedicAlert Foundation are proud to announce an exciting new partnership which will seek to benefit some of Australia's most vulnerable residents around the country.

From July 1, 2015, Tunstall Healthcare and the MedicAlert Foundation will embark on a new partnership to provide more comprehensive services to their respective clients and members.

For over 40 years, the MedicAlert Foundation has been Australia's only not-for-profit organisation to provide a 24/7 personal medical emergency information and identification service.

Operating globally for over 57 years, Tunstall Healthcare supports people to live independently with a range of assistive technology solutions that enable clients to have access to help when they need it most.

"Tunstall and MedicAlert share common values and philosophies on providing a high quality of service to our customers," said Tunstall's Managing Director Lyn Davies.

"Our new alliance aims to reach more people around Australia to gain access to a wider range of services and support to assist them to remain independent and safe, both in and out of their homes."

Collectively the two organisations provide assistance to more than 200,000 Australians with varying healthcare needs.

"At MedicAlert, our core purpose is to provide responsive personal medical identification and information for all Australians, and Tunstall Healthcare aligns with this vision,” said MedicAlert’s Chief Executive Officer Heidi Jones.

"This partnership marks the start of a range of innovations, services and technology we are introducing to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of our current and new members," she said.

This partnership is an exciting step forward for Tunstall and MedicAlert in providing connected healthcare services for their clients.
