Using monitored assistive technology solutions is changing healthcare for our ageing population, and Tunstall Healthcare Managing Director Lyn Davies is at the forefront of this industry in the Asia-Pacific market.

With 25 years’ experience in leadership roles across the public and private sectors, Davies understands the value of using technology to support people in vulnerable situations and times of their lives, and medical professionals in demanding workplaces. Taking on a new challenge, Davies moved to Tunstall Healthcare as the General Manager in 2004, before she was promoted to Managing Director in 2012. Her mission, to make a meaningful difference.  “Here at Tunstall, the work we do makes a difference and that’s meaningful to me. It’s such a diverse and interesting market, where anything is possible if you put your mind to it. That’s the type of environment I want to be in, where what we do hopefully makes a difference,” she says.

Under her leadership, Tunstall Healthcare is saving lives, leading the way in digital healthcare and delivering services to over 60,000 people. It is Tunstall Healthcare’s early beginnings – Norman Tunstall’s own personal need to keep his Mum safe – that inspire Davies to keep listening to their clients and working on solutions.  “Tunstall has provided me the opportunity to work closely with some amazing organisations and individuals who are delivering healthcare, community care and home support programs to some of the most vulnerable people in our society. The carers and providers in our industry who support our clients in their everyday lives are the unsung heroes. They inspire me every day to do more, try harder and be the best we can be as we support them,” she said.  While the industry is still largely managed by men, Davies urges other women in healthcare roles to not get comfortable. “If you see opportunity to increase your skills, educate yourself more and learn from others, then grab it with both hands,” she said.
