NHS problem

Providing objective data on a patients’ physical health, wellbeing and activity in a mental health setting has previously been hard, if not impossible. As patients are not confined to a bed as in an acute hospital setting and they have agency in determining their own activities, conventional vital signs and wellbeing technologies, such as bed head array and wearables, have proved unsuitable. Other reactive technologies, such as bed mats and other sensors, have also proved ineffective and sometimes even counterproductive to the provision of effective care. These technologies alert after the advent of an adverse event and as such do not help to avoid incidents which come at a human cost in terms of harm and an operational and efficiency cost in terms of clinical time.

The solution

Oxehealth’s Oxevision is a contact-free vision-based patient monitoring platform for use across inpatient and residential care facilities. It gives ward teams the clinical insights they require to plan patient care and proactively intervene to help their patients. This results in fewer incidents and injuries, improved quality and operational savings.


Partnering with one in three NHS England Mental Health Trusts. Key evidence in mental health includes: 48% reduction in bedroom falls (68% reduction in A&E visits) at night in dementia wards, 26% reduction in bedroom assaults in psychiatric intensive care, 22% reduction in bedroom self-harm in acute wards. In addition, improved patient and staff experience and operational savings (e.g. reducing falls in 24-bed hospital saved 7,800 clinical hours per year.
