How can telehealth / digital health be used to monitor vital signs?

What is our telehealth / digital health vital signs service?

Measuring basic bodily functions are also known as vital signs, as they can often indicate a patients health. Vital signs include assessments of functions such as blood pressure, heart rate, breathing rate and body temperature.

What is our vital signs service?

Our telehealth / digital health vital signs service uses simple technology to allow patients to monitor their basic health indicators from the comfort and convenience of their own home.

  • A self-monitoring device such as a blood pressure machine enables a patient to take their own measurement.
  • Patients then communicate this data via an automated phone call, a smartphone app or an email.
  • If an irregular reading is submitted, a healthcare professional is alerted so immediate contact can be made with the patient.
  • This means that the patients health is being closely monitored by a professional without the hassle of regular routine appointment visits.

 

What are the benefits of a self-monitoring service?

Vital signs self-monitoring allows patients to self-manage their condition, with the reassurance a health professional is only a phone call away. The service gives them more flexibility as they don’t have to attend regular appointments. For clinicians, appointments are reduced meaning resources can be used elsewhere.

Our integration can also enable patient readings to automatically flow into SystmOne and EMIS Web meaning they always have the most up-to-date patient information.
