Digitising care homes: how can remote monitoring technologies help care homes improve the health of residents?
Digitising care homes: how can remote monitoring technologies help care homes improve the health of residents?
In this episode, Rachael Lomax, deputy manager of a care home in Edgware, and Matthew Nye, NHS England’s regional director for digital transformation, discuss the impact that remote monitoring technology is having across London’s care homes, reflecting on the implementation journey and what the future may hold. Devices such as the Whzan “Blue Box” allow care home staff to take a range of clinical readings and observations to improve the way they monitor residents’ health, enabling them to alert health professionals to early signs of deterioration while providing added reassurance to residents and families. Plans to expand the use of these kinds of technologies across London are progressing quickly, with nearly half of the capital’s care homes set to be using similar devices by the end of the year. It means the way our care homes protect residents’ health may soon take a big leap forward, enabled by these smart technologies.

New frontiers: can telemedicine provide different ways of providing care for children and young people with chronic conditions?
New frontiers: can telemedicine provide different ways of providing care for children and young people with chronic conditions?
In this episode, Paul Dimitri, a professor of child health and paediatric consultant at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and Megan Dale, clinical lead for the Tytocare project at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, discuss their progress in implementing a new device that enables clinicians to provide a range of physical examinations for children and young people remotely. Supported by NHSX funding, the TytoCare telemedicine device allows clinical teams to provide a full virtual consultation over Zoom or MS Teams, with the technology enabling them to take remote observations such as listening to the child’s chest and heart, examining skin rashes and measuring their temperature and heart rate. With the pandemic radically increasing demand for remote monitoring solutions, Paul and Megan explore the importance of extensive user testing, collaborative working with families and robust feedback and evaluation, all of which are helping to build confidence in the new technology and ensure it continues to make a meaningful contribution to children’s health services across the region.
