Our integration with Current Health offers care teams an immediate insight into their patients’ state of health, to allow more timely and preventative care, as well as empower patients to take proactive control of their health.
Current Health’s wearable device passively measures a patient’s vital signs from the upper arm, enabling remote physiological monitoring of patients in either their home, hospital or care home. Current Health integrates with other wireless devices so additional physiological endpoints such as blood glucose, weight and spirometry can also be gathered.
The data appears within the PKB interface, letting clinicians and care teams monitor health data to better manage chronic conditions and at-home patient care to reduce hospital admissions and improve cost efficiencies.
Christopher McCann, CEO of Current Health, said: “By combining Current’s real-time, passive remote patient monitoring with PKB’s patient portal, clinicians will have instant access to a complete picture of a patient’s health, from their respiratory and oxygen saturation rates to their medications and allergies and most recent discharge information, which will allow for improved clinical workflows, reduced hospital readmission and, ultimately, better patient outcomes.”
The first deployment of this joint solution was at Imperial College Healthcare Trust as part of the Care Information Exchange project in North West London.
