Rapid Insight Programme A rapid case study with North and Mid Hampshire Integrated Care Partnership on the use of remote consultations. Dr Charlotte Hutchings (Deputy Clinical Chair North Hampshire CCG, Macmillan GP, GP at Odiham and Old Basing Surgeries in Hampshire) and Philippa Darnton (Associate Director of Insight, Wessex Academic Health Science Network) present learning from their new programme designed to provide rapid insights into the Covid-19 pandemic response at a health system level. Wessex AHSN formed a Rapid Insight Team in April this year to work alongside its member organisations to capture learning about the changes they had put in place, and to help them to understand which of these they would want to keep and develop in the longer term. This session, recorded in September 2020, focuses on one case study relating to the use of remote consultations to explore the background and purpose of the work, the nature of the Rapid Insight approach, and the learning that surfaced.
Welcome to the Virtual Covid Ward. This short video explains how to use the 'sats probe' (also called a pulse oximeter) we have given you to help us take care of you remotely. This film has been produced by the TICC-19 Pathway team, a Covid-19 triage pathway developed at the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust.
This webinar explains the background to COVID Oximetry @home and COVID virtual wards, and what this means for care home staff supporting residents who are being monitored remotely using pulse oximetry. Aimed at registered managers, care workers in care homes, Primary Care Network clinical leads, and staff supporting remote monitoring, it covers why ‘silent hypoxia’ is important, how it works in practice, and the range of support and learning materials on offer. Organised by the AHSN Network with NHS England and NHS Improvement, the webinar was held on 9 February 2021.

The Covid Oximetry at Home work (sometimes called a "virtual ward") describes an enhanced package of remote monitoring (of symptoms and oxygen saturations) for patients with confirmed/suspected Covid-19 who are at risk of future deterioration/admission, provided within a patient’s own home (or usual residence) overseen by a multidisciplinary team (MDT) from either the community or hospital.
Wessex AHSN hosted a webinar for YOURmeds in Dec 2020. This system helps individuals take the right medication at the right time. The mobile-enabled YOURmeds Tag clips to a special monitored dosage pack filled by the pharmacy, and visually and audibly alerts at the time medication is due to be taken. If an error is made – late, forgotten, incorrect day or excess dose – the Tag will inform the user’s support network via a cascade of smart-phone alerts, so the right support can be mobilised. Discover how West Lothian Council and Manchester City Council are using YOURmeds to manage medication in the community. By empowering someone to take their medication, West Lothian Council is using the adherence data as a daily cognitive check. A drop in adherence is a quick way to promote preventative health and social care. The webinar was chaired by Charles Lowe, CEO of the Digital Health and Care Alliance (1 hour)
