The HomePod is a significantly enhanced means of enabling and supporting patients to self-monitor their long term condition. It would be suitable for use in early discharge or virtual ward schemes, or for the delivery of rehabilitation programmes.
HomePod is a Telehealth solution deployed all across the UK, and Telehealth Solutions offer a range of services to support the management of long term conditions.View info PDF View Study PDF
What is Telehealth
Educational resources can be available for patients via embedded videos or make use of video conferencing to provide classes for multiple patients.
Patient’s protocols are fully customisable by the clinicians and can be remotely updated at any time facilitating personalised care plans.
No information is stored on the HomePod itself and data is securely transferred to a server behind the NHS N3 firewall.
Easy to Use
Easy to Use - HomePod is an intuitive 10” touch-screen device with large text and graphic display. The optional audio feature can replay vocal clips to ensure that people with visual impairment or low literacy levels can still use the system.
The web portal allows you to securely check and add records on a smart device wherever you are.
Secure video conferencing now enables one-to-one tele-consultations.
Easy to Deploy
The HomePod can be deployed straight out of the box due to automatic pairing, registration and signal optimiser features. The HomePod uses wireless and Bluetooth technology so can be conveniently and discreetly located in the home and easily moved.
