Somerset to monitor 4,000 people with long-term conditions4th May 2012
A project by NHS Somerset to monitor the symptoms of 4,000 people living with long-term conditions over the next three years will utilise telehealth technology from Safe Patient Systems.
In one of the largest roll-outs of telehealth monitoring outside the national whole system demonstrator project, the process will focus on people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart disease, and diabetes. The Safe Mobile care System works by providing patients with a touch-screen mobile phone-style device, which is programmed with personalised care plans from its web-based application software.
