Recovering from COVID-19 at home
When soaring admission rates hit critical levels during the pandemic, digital technology helped shift care from hospitals to homes. Through virtual wards, you can safely discharge your patients sooner, monitoring them remotely from home.
CliniTouch Vie has been shown to increase capacity, reduce re-admissions, and save the NHS thousands of pounds*. We’ve been named the ‘Best COVID-19 remote monitoring solution’ and have supported thousands of patients through our clinical pathway.
COVID-19 was just the beginning. As the rollout of virtual wards continues, we can help you to deliver and scale brilliant virtual care at home.
"By working with Spirit, it has allowed us to ensure all appropriate patients can be discharged from hospital and be supported in their own homes using the virtual ward."
Alex Woodward, Deputy Cardio-Respiratory Lead, Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust
Published, proven results
The evidence for virtual wards in the fight against COVID-19 is growing, but we're proud to have been one of the first. Our early evaluation study has been peer-reviewed and published, and we're continuing to evaluate our ongoing live deployments. We have proven evidence that this works for COVID-19 patients.

"It wasn't a replacement for what care they would have got in hospital"
Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust has been using CliniTouch Vie since November 2020 to provide a virtual ward for COVID-19 patients. Taken from our recent panel discussion around the lessons we learned when delivering a virtual ward, Daisy Savage shares how care on the virtual ward mirrors the levels of care patients would receive in hospital.
