Improve clinical outcomes with Inhealthcare's vital signs self-monitoring service
Our vital signs self-monitoring service uses simple technology to proactively monitor patients remotely. Patients discharged from hospital with various long term conditions including COPD, diabetes or chronic heart failure can use a device to monitor their blood pressure, temperature, weight, heart rate, C02 and Sp02 without having to travel to clinic, or clinicians having to make domiciliary visits to collect simple readings.
Our vital signs service is easy for patients to use and they can communicate readings back to their care team via an automated telephone call, SMS, email or our smartphone app – My Inhealthcare. Patients are also asked a series of clinically determined safety questions. All readings are fed directly into the patient record with clinical system integration, including EMIS Web and SystmOne. If readings fall outside of pre-set parameters, an alert is generated to the appropriate care team to make timely intervention.
Our vital signs self-monitoring service is powered by our national digital health platform.
The service has been backed by the former health minister, Norman Lamb, who said: “At a time when the NHS is under enormous pressure, it’s more vital than ever that we do everything we can to prevent people from being admitted to hospital unnecessarily, and this digital tool can make an important contribution.” Read more in our blog.
