Remote Patient Monitoring Could Save PCTs and Consortia 180,000 a Year

Telehealth Solutions Limited

Patients using HomePods to measure vital signs and communicate with carers have better outcomes and fewer hospital visits, our research suggests.A pilot project saw a 90% reduction in length of stay and hospital admissions, a 40% drop in home visits from the GP and A&E visits reduced by half.This paper illustrates how in-home monitoring can save a PCT or GP consortium over £180,000 a year just by improving the care of a small section of COPD patients.
