Product director Jamie Innes reveals what sets Inhealthcare apart from competitors and highlights recent roll outs that are helping the NHS to ease pressures during the pandemic.
What does Inhealthcare do?
Inhealthcare is the largest provider of digital health services in the UK, with deployments across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Our geography covers nearly one half of the UK population. Due to the pandemic, we are seeing increasing demand for our digital health services to ease the strain on the NHS.
Our services range from care home monitoring to COPD, hypertension and gestational diabetes. We have more than 100 service lines which are growing day by day and if we don’t have the service you want, we’ll build it for you.
What makes Inhealthcare different from other digital health providers?
- One of the major things that sets us apart is the fact that we are one platform that can deliver digital health services across all areas of health. Whether or not that’s services for falls prevention, heart failure or now COVID, we can meet all your digital health needs. Rather than using multiple suppliers and systems, we do it all.
- We can build services in just 24 hours. With the way our technology is built, we can turn services around rapidly. This has been essential for our customers getting COVID services rolled out.
- Our services are digitally inclusive of the whole population. Digital can be a barrier for many people but we give patients a choice on how they engage with us. They can use SMS and apps but they can also use traditional means of communicating including the automated telephone system. We make it easy for patients to break down those barriers to adoption.
- We have wealth of experience rolling out digital health services – we know the barriers to overcome – whether that’s systems or winning over hearts and minds.
- We integrate with key NHS systems meaning the right data gets to the right health care professional at the right time
What are some recent exciting projects you can tell us about?
Wessex – We’ve been working with the Wessex AHSN to roll out an Oximetry @ Home service across southern England, making it widely available to patients in primary and community care settings. Those most at risk of poor outcomes are best identified by oxygen levels. Patients are monitored in their own homes to monitor and identify silent hypoxia. Inhealthcare has rolled out the service across Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Dorset and is soon to go live in Buckinghamshire, Surrey and Sussex.
North East London – Inhealthcare is providing care home monitoring across North East London to enable vulnerable residents to stay healthy in their homes and prevent avoidable hospital admissions during and after the pandemic. The new service will connect primary care networks with up to 215 care homes in Barking and Dagenham, City and Hackney, Havering, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.
