Remote Patient Monitoring

Docobo – Market-leading remote monitoring and virtual care

Our remote patient monitoring software, DOC@HOME®, and devices allow healthcare providers to transform the delivery of care and enhance quality of life for patients outside of clinical settings, whether this is at home, in care homes or any other preferred place of residence.

By using our tools, care professionals can better understand their population’s healthcare needs, reducing the strain on the entire care system. Our technology supports clinicians to enhance needs-led and person-centered care while increasing independence and autonomy of long-term conditions. It enables safe and secure home-based clinical care, reducing unplanned hospital admissions and freeing up beds, as well as tackling waiting list backlogs and improving patient outcomes.

How secure is Docobo remote monitoring?

Docobo’s remote monitoring software, DOC@HOME, is Medical Device Regulation (MDR) accredited. This is vital for assuring patients and clinicians of the product’s safety, and that health is being monitored to the highest medical standard.

Where is Docobo remote monitoring used?

Our remote monitoring, virtual care and screening capability is used in care homes, in primary care
settings, in patients’ own homes, in the community and by hospitals, for higher acuity of care at home and supported discharge.

Many areas benefit from using our remote monitoring, including cardiac, respiratory, diabetes, oncology, MND, mental health, dementia, end of life and more.

What are the advantages of remote monitoring?

Remote monitoring enables care professionals to gain more comprehensive health data from people in their own home environment, offering greater understanding of their care needs and reducing demand on services.

Our clients across a range of healthcare services have expressed numerous benefits of using remote monitoring, these include:

  • More proactive care – increasing early interventions
  • Reduced A&E attendance
  • Reduced unplanned admissions
  • Less inpatient admissions/ length of stay
  • Efficient management of hospital waiting lists
  • Reduced GP and nurse visits/ appointments
  • Improved medication management/ titration
  • Increased caseload capacity
  • Improved screening of vital signs
  • Stroke prevention
  • Increased care home efficiency
  • Upskilling of care home staff
  • Better CQC ratings for care homes
  • Increased independence and autonomy of long-term conditions
  • A better patient experience
  • Peace of mind for patient and family

Virtual wards

Virtual wards enable patients to safely remain in their home environment while regularly sending necessary data for their specialist clinical team to monitor. This supports patients to leave hospital sooner, freeing up beds for others. Virtual wards are an essential tool in managing the increase of people being admitted into high dependency care, as well as managing the flow from acute trusts. Docobo works collaboratively with the care provider to create question sets, based on relevant required information for monitoring the patient’s condition.

Screening - Proactively identifying people at risk

Docobo technology is designed to keep people as healthy as possible. This can mean picking up potential clinical issues BEFORE they happen, which leads to fewer hospital admissions and better health outcomes. Opportunistic screening – or opportunistic assessment – is a way of identifying individuals who might have an undiagnosed medical problem. Docobo has extensive experience of doing just this. Along with our parent company, Graphnet, who specialise in population health management and identifying cohorts who may benefit from specific interventions – it’s something that is very important to us.

Stroke prevention and preventing heart attacks can be a significant benefit of opportunistic screening. The more people screened, the more we can reduce – and potentially eradicate – strokes. We use monitoring devices such as ECG monitors, oximeters or blood pressure monitors – and our own uniquely designed MDR accredited device, CAREPORTAL – to take measurements from a range of people, some of whom may have an undiagnosed medical condition.

Docobo makes opportunistic screening really simple to set up and implement, enabling services to screen and collect data quickly and easily and can be used within kiosks. The data collected enables clinicians to signpost individuals to the right service and identify health inequalities in a community setting.
