Our virtual ward service allows us to deliver remote monitoring of patients on behalf of Trusts. They can be configured as specialist or general wards to digitally coordinate the care of a group of either acutely or sub-acutely unwell patients.
Using the Huma platform and remote diagnostic devices, our clinical teams can collect, view, and analyse patient data via an intuitive dashboard. Huma’s remote patient monitoring technology has been shown to double clinical capacity and reduce readmissions by over a third. Their award-winning modular platforms are used by more than 3,000 hospitals and clinics internationally.
Virtual ward benefits:
- Cost saving. Significant savings on the cost of an inpatient bed
- Early discharge of patients provides extra clinical capacity
- Patients prefer to be treated in their own home rather than in hospital.
Suitable pathways may include, but are not limited to:
- COPD and wider acute respiratory
- Heart failure
- Post-operative monitoring
- Elective recovery (pre and post-op pathways)
“By implementing virtual wards with its incredible digital capabilities, we are able to remotely monitor patients who would otherwise be in a secondary care bed.”
