Telehealth

What is telehealth?

Telehealth uses technology and telecommunications to deliver digital healthcare. It allows patients to interact with health professionals live over video for immediate care, for example, or the ongoing capture of data from patients to monitor and encourage self-management of long term conditions.

SurgeryPod

SurgeryPod can help your practice to archive data captured as part of your Quality Outcome Framework and in the achievement of other targets.

Patients can use SurgeryPod unaided to measure blood pressure, weight, BMI and complete a wide variety of questionnaires. Their results are automatically coded into their health record and any abnormal results are flagged centrally. It’s easy to use and available in multiple languages.

SurgeryPod can assist in achieving the indicators related to blood pressure monitoring, alcohol status, height, weight and BMI, the contraceptive pill check and smoking.
