What are virtual wards?

Virtual wards act like a hospital at home, patients can be physically discharged to their home environment, but their care and clinical responsibility remains with the hospital until clinical discharge

How can Docobo support you with virtual wards?

Docobo provides ongoing support from a dedicated service manager who will work collaboratively with you on the implementation and the whole virtual ward process. Clinicians assess patient risk to establish if it is safe to monitor the patient at home. Docobo will then manage the logistics for your virtual ward, sending out the right equipment to the right place at the right time.

With our years of expertise, Docobo can do the following:

  • Enrol numerous patients quickly and easily onto the system
  • Closely monitor patients within your virtual ward
  • Generate alerts to support clinicians to manage any health concerns
  • Seamless transition to primary care long term condition monitoring
  • Seamless ‘step up’ capability should this be required
  • Patients can be discharged from virtual wards within minutesWith all Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) being tasked to create virtual wards in the coming years, Docobo’s services are providing the technology and logistics to run and sustain virtual wards.
