Another launch at the NHS Innovation Expo and simultaneously in Durham: County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust (CDDFT), in partnership with InHealthcare Ltd, are launching the new CDDFT Health Call digital healthcare service.
CDDFT have designed and developed their own digital healthcare pathways using the InHealthcare N3-based platform that is interoperable with existing patient systems. As InHealthcare is a healthcare service company rather than a hub or medical device manufacturer, pathways can potentially use any telehealth hub or medical device and data from remote monitoring devices can be shared with clinicians through existing clinical systems. In the press release, Jane Haywood from CDDFT says: “We, like many other NHS organisations, carried out pilots on telehealth, using multiple hubs to evaluate benefits. We quickly realised that we needed to be more flexible but more importantly we needed standardisation across the whole health economy…simply put, we can pick and choose the right devices to deliver the right outcomes.”
