TLDR: The use of digital remote monitoring technology in care homes has been found to reduce hospital A&E attendances by 11% and emergency admissions by 25%. The technology, developed by NHS-owned digital company Health Call, involves a smartphone app that care home staff can use to monitor and manage the long-term health of residents. By recording daily observations, doctors and clinicians can review the resident’s health and offer guidance for their care. The app also improves communication between health service providers and care home staff, boosting confidence in identifying deterioration earlier and supporting better illness management.
