We are pleased to announce that Telehealth Solutions have increased the range of Long Term Conditions (LTCs) that we routinely monitor and manage.
We have now added a comprehensive Hypertension Service, including screening for postural hypotension, and a Type 1 & Type 2 Diabetes on insulin service to our already established Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Chronic Heart Failure solutions. In addition, we have also included a state-of-the-art, combined Blood Glucose and Ketone Meter which connects via Bluetooth to our Clinical User Interface.
Currently already monitoring thousands of patients with Hypertension in Spain, our latest Hypertension service is designed to monitor newly diagnosed Hypertensives alongside patients with difficult to manage Blood Pressure. Finally, our TEC solution also assesses Postural Hypotension which is a major cause of falls in the elderly.
Our Type 1 & Type 2 diabetes on insulin service is designed to aid Type 1 Diabetics at any age, as well as Type 2 diabetics who are insulin dependent and may also be useful in Type 2 diabetics who have problems gaining good glycaemic control. This new service will be invaluable in helping patients to control their condition better and reduce their risk of Diabetic Keto-Acidosis, hypoglycaemia as well as other complications.
As well as increasing the number of LTCs we now monitor and help to manage, we are also delighted to announce the launch of a new comprehensive Anticoagulation/INR monitoring service. This solution combines Near Patient Testing with an end-to- end clinical advisory service enabling patients to check their INR and manage their Warfarin dose easily at home. With case finding for Atrial Fibrillation a national clinical priority, we believe this new service provides a much more cost-effective and safer service than traditional services provided by Anticoagulation Clinics.
