This appointment follows the recent announcement that Gary Steen has joined the health tech company as chief technology officer (CTO) from telecoms blockbuster TalkTalk.

Talking of his appointment Emil said: “It is an honour to be joining such a long-standing and reputable organisation. The work that the team at Tunstall have done to date is remarkable, the technology that they are developing and delivering is life-changing to some of our most vulnerable members of society.

“I am excited to learn from my new colleagues and together with them, grow the business into a true deliverer of solutions to help and enable people globally, to live better and independently for longer.”

Emil joins Tunstall from Cerner Corporation where he held the position of international president, managing all territories outside of the US.

A Cerner veteran, he joined the company almost 25 years ago and held multiple positions across different directorates and markets until his appointment as president in 2017, having lived in Belgium, Spain, the USA and the UK.

He brings with him strength and experience in data integration in a healthcare setting as well as first-hand experience in the development and adoption of advanced software solutions across health care structures in multiple geographies.

As a leader, Emil has been a champion of team engagement and has had a specific focus on driving diversity, equity, and inclusion. He considers a company’s workforce to be its most vital resource and that drawing from the strengths of disparate communities is the best way to achieve excellent outcomes.

He continues: “It is the people within a company that make it, technical know-how and relevant experience are hugely important; but passion, understanding, collaboration and a shared vision is what pushes an organisation to the next level, and I am very excited to go on this journey with Tunstall.”

A recent report of Tunstall’s in-home telecare services proves its ethos and ‘quadruple aims model’ of improved cost efficiencies, quality of health and care, carer experience and end user experience.

Its survey found that 54 per cent of those who use Tunstall’s wrap-around in-home telecare services collectively more than halved their calls to the ambulance service resulting in dramatic cost savings to the NHS.

In addition, they were able to live independently for almost nine months longer than those who were without the service, a significant increase when considering the emotional and financial implications of moving to residential and/or nursing care.

Peter Nicklin, chairman of Tunstall Group, commented: “As we move forward past our 65th year anniversary and continue to expand our digital technology capabilities, I am thrilled to have Emil leading the charge.

“His leadership experience is perfectly placed to empower the Tunstall team to deliver products and services that, ultimately, save and prolong lives.”

Tunstall works with social care providers, healthcare services, housing and retirement living providers and charities in 19 countries, improving the lives of more than five million people, including those living with dementia, learning disabilities, physical disabilities and long-term health conditions.

Recently, the company expanded its product portfolio with a “revolutionary” telecare product called Sound Boost which is installed in the property of vulnerable individuals to provide 24-hour support.
