Reducing heart failure admissions with technology
Heart failure admissions have reached record levels in the UK, rising three times faster than any other condition1. Once admitted, the average length of stay is rising too. We can help you to tackle both challenges with remote patient monitoring.
CliniTouch Vie enables you to monitor your patients for early signs of deterioration. Whilst they stay in the comfort of their own home, you have access to all the clinical data you need. The result? Fewer home visits, reduced emergency admissions and more efficient patient care2.
We started using digital technology to support heart failure patients in 2014. So whether it’s long-term monitoring, or providing a virtual ward post-discharge, we’re here to help.
"The clinical team value being able to case manage their patients by close monitoring, which should reduce the risk of them having an emergency hospital admission. Most importantly, patients will feel well supported."
Zoe Harris, Integrated Cardio-respiratory Lead at Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust

"It's now really become embedded within our service"
The COVID-19 pandemic saw Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust increase its use of digital technology, including for heart failure patients in the community. As featured in an NHSX case study, Joanne Szymkowiak, a heart failure specialist nurse, and Tanzeem Adam, a heart failure and respiratory rehabilitation team leader, reflect on how the technology has changed their ways of working.
