 InterCare® in practice: reducing home visits and emergency admissions

A 12-month pilot study of chronic lung disease patients by an NHS Foundation Trust has shown strong results for Nimbus Medical’s InterCare® platform.

The self-care platform enables patients to check their vital signs and connects them with their healthcare and family support network via a tablet or TV. The pilot initiative dramatically reduced home visits and emergency hospital admissions*, with: 

Pilot results
37% reduction in unplanned admissions
33% reduction in home visits
43% reduction in follow-up outpatient visits
62% of patients with reduced anxiety scores
43% of patients with reduced depression scores

The senior clinical informatics and benefits facilitator at the Trust said: “All of the patients who took part in the study led very restricted lives because of their condition. They all recognised that their condition was susceptible to deterioration very quickly, and reported that proactive monitoring made them more confident in managing it better.”

A patient's own television can be InterCare®-enabled with a HDMI stick, secure camera and user-friendly, large-scale keyboard controls. It brings accessible technology to a broad range of patients, including the elderly, vulnerable and those who need support with chronic conditions and rehabilitation.
