NHSX fund diagnostic technology for care home residents

NHSX have funded and supported an innovative diagnostic technology solution, enabling GPs to remotely perform a clinical examination during a video call. Residents across 46 care homes in South East London will be first in line to access the latest technology.

It forms part of the National Innovation Collaborative, which will transform the way care home residents across Bromley and Lambeth access their GP.

Tara Donnelly, Chief Digital Officer, NHSX, said: "Through the pandemic at NHSX, we have been helping trial new technology that allows clinicians to monitor and assess patients' conditions remotely.

"As part of our Innovation Collaborative, NHSX is delighted to be working in partnership with innovators and teams that are transforming care for thousands of people.

"Patients in South East London will now get remote monitoring that goes a step further, making it quicker and easier for doctors to monitor their chest and heart conditions at home."

Since Covid-19, care homes across the country have adopted ‘virtual ward rounds’, making video consultations an essential tool for clinicians. This will ensure residents receive high quality care in a timely manner.

NHE365 Virtual Festival: Digital Healthcare

The integration of new technology, such as using virtual outpatient appointments instead of face-to-face reviews of patients in the hospital. Adapting the ways in which our NHS workers serve people has been critical in continuing to provide high-quality treatment, a positive patient experience and preventing Covid-19 transmission during the pandemic. Our healthcare sector has the potential to transform the way we continue to provide essential services while also improving patient care. But how easy is the integration of these innovations into routine NHS practice?

On the 28th of October, at the NHE365 Virtual Hospitals & Technology Enabled Care online event, we will be discussing patient flow and experience, reducing waiting times, reducing the patient backlog and increasing technology adoption. Will you be attending?
