Spirit Digital, a division of Spirit Health Group that designs, develops and delivers evidence based digital health services helping people to stay out of hospital and improving clinical outcomes.
It has been recognised as a supplier on the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) G-Cloud 10 framework for its award-winning, digital remote clinical monitoring and empowerment solution, CliniTouch Vie.
The G-Cloud framework is an agreement between the government and suppliers who provide cloud-based services. Split into three categories – cloud hosting, cloud software and cloud support – the framework can be accessed by all public sector organisations through the government’s Digital Marketplace. Spirit Digital has been awarded its place on the framework in the cloud software category.
By integrating CliniTouch Vie into care pathways, Spirit Digital can help stop people going into hospital and improve clinical outcomes. A locked-down tablet provided with integrated 3G for intensive monitoring, CliniTouch Vie supports clinicians in delivering dynamic care plans for the most at-risk patients. Its evidence-based algorithms enable automatic triage for healthcare teams, helping to prevent avoidable emergency admissions. Combined with patient education and empowerment through integrated direct messaging and video support, the solution helps to increase patients’ self-management for their condition. Spirit Digital has evidence-based algorithms for COPD, Diabetes, Heart Failure, Frailty, and Cancer. Through its use in monitoring COPD patients, for example, the solution has demonstrated a 67% reduction in unplanned respiratory admissions.
Speaking of the successful application, Emma-Jane Roberts, Managing Director at Spirit Digital says; “The role of the cloud and its place within the healthcare industry is changing and Spirit Digital is proud to be at the forefront of this evolution. We’re dedicated to using the latest technology to deliver an evidence-based, patient-centric service that helps stop people going into hospital and supports the successful management of long-term conditions where it is most effective. Spirit Digital’s listing on the G-Cloud 10 framework is further testament to our clinically proven CliniTouch Vie platform.
“Through the use of our technology, we will be able to support forward-thinking care models that drive timely, proactive intervention that will stop people going into hospital and make better use of clinical resource, improve costs and empower patients to improve the management of their conditions.”
