The NHSX Remote Monitoring Technology Platform has been brought together to help support remote care across NHS England with a focus on COVID-19 patients and the management of patients with Long Term Conditions.
Specifically, the framework is designed to enable NHS and care organisations to access remote care technology platforms attuned to their local operational environment. NHSX, through Sparks DPS has identified ITWH as an assured supplier within this framework.
Remote health monitoring enables the ITWH technology platform to be deployed to monitor patients in non-clinical environments such as in the home. The technology delivers benefits to both patients and clinicians by enabling the monitoring of patients with COVID-19 within a ‘Virtual Ward’ model. The ITWH Patient Journey Platform deploys remote physiological monitoring devices, enabling symptom tracking and the monitoring of patient conditions using a configurable dashboard.
This approach has the potential to improve the quality of life for patients and reduce hospital visits. It is also a valuable addition when care providers wish to configure ‘remote’ consultations to track patient progress ‘virtually’.
The award-winning Intouch with Health (ITWH) Patient Journey Platform currently processes over 30 million NHS outpatient appointments every year and supports over 50 NHS Trusts improve communication and information management, reduce costs and improve overall quality.
