The technology is already enabling consultants to work at multiple sites at once, saving vital time. Read the article featured in The Guardian.

Webinar Recording: Telemedicine Devices in Action

The expert NHS speaker panel shared their own clinical experience of using telemedicine devices to mobilise their workforce and maximise efficiency. Access the recording.

Our world-class telemedicine devices are revolutionising care by enabling NHS specialist consultants to see, hear and speak with patients as if they were at their bedside – even if they are miles away at a different hospital.

The devices are easily replicable across a number of settings, whether it is instant access to specialist advice to help resuscitate a baby, or for routine ward rounds, the timely delivery of safe care is a key factor. As well as providing remote support and reassurance to colleagues the devices help make job planning far more efficient with the reduction in cross-site travel, enabling self-isolating or shielding consultants to participate and a reduction in locum costs.

Key benefits

Instant access to urgent and routine specialist advice

Mobilise the workforce – maximise the efficiency of your team

Enable equity of access to services across a region (mental health, specialist care etc.)

Minimal training and set up required – the single virtual care platform enables all devices to be connected on a universally accessible network for enhanced communication.

In Practice – Alder Hey Children’s and Liverpool Women’s Hospitals

“We have actually seen the care for our babies enhanced by the telemedicine system. Busy specialists have been able to be at the baby’s cot side within minutes of being contacted, providing their expert opinion and discussing with the families as if they were in the room. Parents have fed back how they have been able to build a relationship with consultants who visited them regularly, despite not meeting them in person. Telemedicine has now become part of our normal care for babies across the city.”

In Practice – University Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust

“With the Teladoc robot I can be doing a ward round on one site in the morning and have a clinic booked immediately afterwards in the afternoon at another. The system allows for greater efficiency because I’m not having to add travel time or risk being delayed in traffic. This means I’m able to spend more time with patients and I have more opportunity to discuss their plans and care. I am also able to review patients who are admitted to my ward between my formal ward rounds and this means that they may be discharged earlier.”
 
“The image and sound quality of the system are excellent and allow me to see and talk to the patient, alongside onsite junior doctors, while having all the relevant medical records at hand – something you’re not able to do via a phone call. Another potential benefit to patients is the increased access to specialists on other sites, including outside of the trust or across the region in future which could mean fewer patients need to be admitted or transferred between hospitals.”
