Meeting the Demand for Virtual Ward Services
In early 2021, the surge in hospitalizations due to COVID-19 and winter-related conditions presented an increased need for Medway’s virtual ward service to help prevent hospital capacity from becoming overwhelmed.
To cope with the increased caseload referred to the service and to maintain high-quality care, Medway deployed Current Health’s remote monitoring platform. Due to the flexibility of the platform, the technology was successfully integrated into a variety of virtual care pathways such as frailty, COPD, asthma and pre-and postoperative patients.
In this case study, we focus on how remote monitoring has helped support Medway’s respiratory patients at home. View the report to:
