SME of the Week: May Roundup

Every week, we put a spotlight on one of the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator or Launchpad companies. Here’s a roundup of this month’s featured SMEs:

About: A platform in secondary care, designed by Clinicians, that digitally enhances Outpatient clinics, creating efficiencies, improved patient & clinical satisfaction and enhanced clinical outcomes.

Recent success: Our COVID-19 response has meant Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) patients can be discharged after 1-2 days compared with 3-5 days through close remoting monitoring, questionnaires and video follow-up appointments, reducing potential exposure to COVID-19 infection.

We have also been able to bulk on-board 273 Gastrointestinal Cancer patients into a digital pathway instantly triggering SMS messages to securely notify patients of the change saving hours of physically calling patients of the change.

Ask: Introductions to NHSX, CCIO and CIOs who aspire to cement virtual clinics beyond COVID-19 by understanding limitations of video/telephone only digital outpatient solutions; namely a solution encompassing appointment management, initial assessments and remote monitoring.
