COPD and heart failure
The COPD and heart failure services gathers patient readings including blood pressure, oxygen, temperature, weight, heart rate and C02.
Patients relay readings via a communication channel of their choice. The service means patients no longer have to attend routine GP appointments.
If readings fall out of range, a healthcare professional is alerted to take appropriate action.
All readings can be viewed in the patient record for authorised professionals to view.
- Improves clinical outcomes & reduces A&E admissions: Our evidence shows enhanced monitoring of the long-term condition has reduced hospital admissions
- Increases clinic capacity: Home monitoring reduces face-to-face appointments, enabling clinicians to prioritise time with more complex patients
- Improves patient satisfaction: The service is easy to use for patients of all technical abilities and patients do not have to take time out of their day to attend routine appointments
