The oncology remote patient monitoring service, sometimes referred to as a cancer virtual ward, monitors and provides support at home to patients who are undergoing chemotherapy and immunotherapy. The service captures vital sign readings and side effects that the patient may be experiencing as a result of the treatment. The service captures vital signs as well as any side effects the patient might be experiencing as a result of the treatment. Vital signs captured include Sp02, blood pressure, weight, temperature and heart rate. As part of the oncology service, the patient also receives feedback and advice on how to manage the side effects of the treatment.
The oncology service removes the need for oncology nurses to call patients, reducing the administrative workload. If readings fall out of thresholds, or if side effects are flagged, an alert is raised for clinical follow up, meaning patients can be appropriately prioritised.
We have an extensive list of approved devices, or alternatively, providers can source their own. Bluetooth connected devices can also be used.
Patients can choose technology that works for them. They can send readings using our app, SMS, email, automated phone call or by direct contact. Giving patients choice, means the service is inclusive.
