We have listed the top 6 potential barriers to remote patient monitoring and how we help clinicians and patients beat them.
From providing educational resource to help empower patients to better manage their own conditions, to identifying and prioritising the patients that absolutely need to be seen and thereby easing the workforce burden faced by doctors, there is little doubt that digital will underpin primary care services well beyond the COVID pandemic.
2020 saw a huge increase in the adoption of digital technologies within modern healthcare economies. From the adoption of video-based triage and GP-to-patient consultations within primary care, to remote monitoring for shielding and vulnerable patients, as well as those discharged early from hospital – both within their own homes and a care home setting, digital technologies have driven wide recognition that there is an alternative way to manage clinical caseloads.

In this insight report, Simon Applebaum, managing director of Spirit Digital, explores how remote monitoring can play a crucial role in reengineering NHS pathways to help better manage vulnerable patients with long-terms conditions and pave the way for new models of continuous, preventative care.
