• We are currently working with NHS Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group and Wiltshire Council to deliver a pilot providing an integrated rapid health and social care response for service users in crisis in their own home. Our Simple Point of Access assesses and coordinates support for service users and deploys our Mobile Response Service, within one hour from receipt of referral. Our Responders actively support patients in the short term and broker on-going support from local health and social care providers. Initially the pilot focussed on admission avoidance but has now been expanded to facilitate hospital discharge.

    As a result of the project, we have been shortlisted for the Health Investors Community Provider of the Year Award 2014.

Telehealth

Telehealth is usually used to describe a service that uses telecommunication technology to monitor people’s health in their home environment. A number of vital signs, traditionally measured during a face to face consultation can be measured remotely. Examples include blood pressure, blood oxygen levels, temperature and weight. There is a tendency to regard a telehealth as the equipment or technology used for the monitoring – this is far from the truth. In many ways the overarching model and, in particular, the way in which the data from the technology is managed is far more important. Delivering an effective telehealth service necessitates the re-design of existing care pathways and the introduction of a robust clinical monitoring service.
Different telehealth services will vary, but essentially they are based around the same principles and infrastructure:
Developing a Business Case, Pathway re-design, Identifying suitable patients, Prescribing Telehealth, Installation, The technology, The Patient’s experience, Monitoring data, Dealing with alerts, Measuring outcomes.

Telecare

Telecare is a service that uses a combination of alarms, sensors and other equipment to help people live independently. This is done by monitoring activity changes over time and will raise a call for help in emergency situations, such as a fall, fire or a flood.

Long Term Condition

Telehealth can be a cost effective solution to improve the quality of care, reduce the number of bed days and improve the overall prognosis for patients with Long Term Conditions.

Medvivo provides a person-centred solution for the management of Long Term Conditions. We have developed our own specialist software solution which can be easily adapted to meet patient specific needs. Our nurse specialists provide clinical support services that complement our telehealth products and we work in partnership to define clinical responsibility without being prescriptive in how clinicians treat their patients.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Chronic Heart Failure (CHF) are the Long Term Conditions that have been identified as being particularly suited to clinical management combined with telehealth. People with these conditions are the most likely to have unplanned hospital  admissions which are potentially avoidable if monitored at home.  Our solution enables the management of co-morbidities as the system can be easily adapted for individual patient needs.

Telehealth Solutions

Medvivo was formed in 2013 from two experienced health and technology companies - Telehealth Solutions and Wiltshire Medical Services.

Telehealth Solutions was well-known in the health technology sector as being on the cutting edge of technology innovation. The HomePod telehealth device is deployed across the UK to support people living with Long Term Conditions such as COPD and heart failure.

Wiltshire Medical Services provided a number of services across Wiltshire, including Out of Hours, a Single Point of Access, Telecare and responders.

Together, Medvivo is clinically led and provides high quality services enabling people to live independently at home by meeting their health and care needs.
