Below are a few examples of our work with teaching hospitals such as: Royal Free, Johns Hopkins, Guy's and St Thomas', Salford Royal, and many more...


Saving nurses' time, freeing up capacity

Rare renal disease

Using the Medopad app, patients are now doing tasks that were ordinarily done by nurses.

From home, patients are remotely transmitting weight, blood pressure, and the results of at home urinalysis. This frees up nursing time, allowing for personalised care conversations.

Outcome: saving nurses' time, freeing up capacity, improved patient satisfaction


Optimising outpatient service efficiency

Heart failure

Nurses are using Medopad during telephone/virtual clinics to remotely review patients’ self-reported blood pressure & weight.

This is used to support remote drug titration. With Medopad, nurses are able to reduce unnecessary in-person appointments. In this way, clinic capacity is optimised, freeing up slots for new patients.

With Medopad, service efficiency is improved and supports the 'care closer to home' agenda.

 

Outcome: optimising outpatient service efficiency


Bringing care closer to home for rare disease patients, improving experience of care

Pulmonary hypertension

Patients travel far into 1 of 7 national specialist centres. Travel exacerbates symptoms, resulting in biased measurements.

Using the Medopad app, patients complete the digital version of the 6 minute walk test from home. 

With this convenience, patients more regularly submit data, giving clinicians a better overview of disease progression.

 

Outcome: bringing care closer to home for rare disease patients, improving experience of care, potentially reducing expensive complications


Identify patients who need additional, targeted support

Pre-hab for surgery patients

Anaesthetists are using Medopad to monitor patients' overall health & fitness in the 6-8 weeks prior to surgery by monitoring weight, activity (steps), medication adherence, and performance on the digitised 6 minute walk test.

Research shows (click here) that physically fitter patients have a lower likelihood of complications, hospital readmissions and shorter length of stay. Patient-reported data is being used as an indicator of patient readiness for surgery. 

 

Outcome: Identify patients who need additional, targeted support, enable better surgical outcomes and faster discharge and recovery


Optimise outpatients, improve service efficiency, provide timely care

Scars therapy

Physiotherapists are remotely reviewing photographs of patients’ scars during weekly multi-disciplinary team meetings.

This is used to triage follow-up appointments. Using Medopad, physiotherapists can identify the patients who are progressing well, and push back their next appointment.

It is also helps with providing timely & responsive care. Reviewing the photos allows them to more easily identify patients who are not responding to treatment.

Outcome: optimise outpatients, improve service efficiency, provide timely care
