Doccla will help the NHS monitor patients remotely

Doctors and nurses in Luton will be able to keep an eye on chronic patients outside of traditional clinical settings through a new partnership with medtech start-up Doccla.

Luton Children and Adults Community Health Services, an NHS service supporting people closer to or at home, will work closely with Doccla to deliver a comprehensive remote patient monitoring service, including the latest innovative wearable technology.

This will allow clinical staff to monitor the vital signs of a patient remotely, either continuously or intermittently, via a secure web browser while the patient recovers at home.

Patients suffering from long-term conditions, as well as those discharged from hospital with more acute conditions, are expected to benefit from this technology.

Dag Larsson, CEO and co-founder of Doccla, said: “The virtualisation of patient wards is a critical step in expanding health resources, increasing efficiency and capacity and, most importantly, delivering better patient care.

“It is exciting to see that there is recognition from the NHS of the benefits remote patient monitoring can bring and we are beginning to see interest swell.

“Doccla’s unique approach of using innovative tech combined with an ability to support clinical service means we overcame much larger tech players to win this first of what we hope are many contracts. Our vision is to make virtual wards a day-to-day part of secondary patient care.”

This contract is the first of its kind to be awarded through the new NHSX Remote Patient Monitoring framework agreement. The framework is designed to accelerate the implementation of remote health monitoring services across the nation’s health and care settings.

Pete Reeve, service director at Luton Children and Adults Community Health Services, said: “We are excited to be working with Doccla to implement best-in-class technology that means we can keep those suffering with chronic conditions safe at home, thus reducing the risk of virus transmission, while alleviating some of the time and capacity pressures felt by our staff.”
