Telemonitoring for patients in Cumbria and Lancashire


Wireless Healthcare-News - NHS Pushes Telemedicine System - A Little

Wirless healthcare today reports on this initiative by an NHS SHA working with Broomwell HealthWatch to provide remote monitoring and transmitition of a range of physiological data including, blood pressure, pulse, breathing rate, heart rate, temperature, heart rhythm (1 lead ECG) and Oxygenation levels (SPO2).

It is unclear whether this is just available from GP surgeries and NHS drop in centres (which for me defeats some of the benefits of telemedicine by providing it in patients own homes) or from the mobile devices in use in the project.
