How can digital health or telehealth be used to monitor patients with COPD?
How does Inhealthcare's digital health / telehealth service for COPD work?
- Patients use a device to monitor blood pressure, temperature, weight, heart rate, C02 and SP02 from the confort of their own home
- Patients communicate readings back to their clinician via an automated telephone call, SMS, an email which links to a secure web portal or a smart phone app
- Patients also answer a series of clinically determined safety questions
- Alerts are automatically generated for clinical follow up
- Patient data integrates with GP systems so GPs and other clinicians can keep up to date with patient progress
