Telehealth Solutions win AwardFri 13 Nov, 2009 // Tartan Silk
AN innovative telehealth project to monitor patients with chronic lung conditions has secured NHS Highland, Argyll & Bute Council and Telehealth Solutions a major industry award.
NHS Highland’s Project Manager Lynn Garrett and Telehealth Solutions’ Product Manager Charles Lowe were at the Scottish Health Awards in Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange on November 11th, at which they collected the coveted Improvement and Innovation award.
The pioneering project, established at the start of this year with very limited resources, has enjoyed phenomenal success since its inception.
A total of 15 HomePods were installed on the Isle of Bute and the benefits were immediately apparent when, just weeks after the project went live, the first unplanned hospital admission was avoided.
Early evaluations would suggest that further admissions have been saved but a structured evaluation, carried out in partnership with the University of the Highlands and Islands, will shortly be conducted. Once the results are known the findings will be shared with other health authorities.
This has saved not only high hospital costs but also fees for out-of-hours emergencies and helicopter call-outs.
