Care Home residents are one of the highest users of healthcare in the UK and other developed economies. Over the next few years, as demand continues to increase, it is vital that efficient solutions are found to manage & moderate the use of healthcare resources in this area.As one example of this, Health Call’s Digital Care Home service allows care home staff to refer patients details direct to clinical teams using a secure portal, such as a website or app. Using the SBAR (situation, background, assessment and recommendation) Tool, staff are able to provide clinical observations such as blood pressure, oxygen saturation and provide details of their concerns. The system also calculates the NEWS2 score based on the information provided.Information can be pulled through to the patients’ electronic record on widely used systems such as EMIS and SystmOne, making it available to all appropriate clinical staff.In use across the North East of England, with more pilot sites planned for Spring 2020, this digital health solution is making a huge contribution to patient care. Hear from front line staff about their experiences and take part directly in further development by attending this Health Call workshop.

The event is aimed at:

  • Clinical Practitioners (acute, community & primary)
  • Service Transformation Operators
  • Care Home Managers and Staff
  • IM&T Practitioners
  • AHSN Network Members
