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.
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)

Today, in the age of digital communication and high-tech research, sharing data is more important than ever before. When the NHS was founded in 1948 things were quite different. Our medical records lived in dusty drawers, alone and unloved, with its life-saving potential untapped. Find out how patient data makes a difference at patientdata.org.uk
