Littlebourne House receives award for successfully using digital health monitoring to enhance care for their residents.

The team at Littlebourne House Care Home in Canterbury has been recognised for their outstanding contribution to technical innovation and support of digital health services. Littlebourne House, a residential care home specialising in elderly care and dementia, has received an award from Docobo for successfully using digital health monitoring to help look after their residents and enhance their care.

Remote monitoring in care homes offers many benefits to residents and staff and enables care home staff to regularly record residents’ vital signs and symptoms into a tablet. The observations are sent automatically to a clinical team, which saves Health Care Assistants’ time trying to contact a clinician and relay the data via the phone.

Led by NHS Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group, the remote monitoring project is part of a project that is seeing remote monitoring rolling out to care homes across Kent, using Docobo’s digital remote monitoring platform DOC@HOME.

We are so proud of the team here who have picked up the Docobo solution and run with it! We’re seeing a real benefit in using the system, and the team has embraced the new technology wholeheartedly.’
