Deploying telemedicine and remote monitoring during COVID-19

We are pleased to share our latest insight report by Prof Sudip Ghosh, Clinical Professor of Medicine & Associate Medical Director at Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust. In the report Professor Ghosh explores the challenges community providers have faced since the onset of COVID-19 and explains why telemedicine is needed within clinical pathways.

A 12-week remote monitoring pilot was deployed in Leicestershire to improve the management of patients living with COPD and heart failure, keeping them safe in their own homes.

Professor Ghosh outlines the aims and outcomes from the pilot, while providing his personal insights on the use of remote patient monitoring.

This is the first time that I have used telehealth to monitor my COPD patients. I have found this an extremely valuable and resourceful tool to remotely manage complex patients in the community, especially within the midst of the deadly COVID-19 global health pandemic.”
