Covid-19 Virtual Ward – your solution to support patients in their own homes

COVID-19 has dramatically changed our healthcare landscape, and the NHS recognises this with funding for oximetry at home for the most vulnerable in our society. The Dignio Covid-19 Virtual Ward solution offers an instant means to safely manage and monitor patients with COVID-19 in their own home or residential care. Rapid deployment within 48 hours will allow you to offer oximetry at home and symptom assessment all through remote digital means.

Patients can use their own phone or tablet to download the MyDignio app, and record their symptoms and measure their vital observations using a pulse oximeter. Aligned with NHS guidelines the app instantly informs the patient and the clinical monitoring team of their current clinical status, allowing for further triage as clinically indicated.

“It is recommended that all clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) should put in place a “COVID Oximetry @home” model as rapidly as possible [….] People living in care homes should receive the same standard of care as someone in their own home. This should be facilitated by care home staff and other supporting services.”
