Imagine a future where patients don’t have to visit a hospital to see a doctor, where diagnosis is given over a secure video link straight into the patient’s home and where prescriptions are completely automated. Together we can make it happen.
Monitor patients from their homes
With telemedicine, you can track a patient’s health from their glucose levels to ECG and dialysis data, all through WiFi-enabled sensors.
The data can be sent back to the ward or monitoring centre where it is analysed by specialists who can monitor the patient without having to fill a hospital bed.
One trial by the NHS in Cornwall saw death rates fall by 45% and a fifth fewer patients admitted to hospital by using telemedicine.
And that’s just the start. If the NHS embraced telemedicine UK-wide it could save £1 billion every year and almost half hospital admissions.

Diagnose patients wherever they are
It’s not just long-term illnesses which can benefit from today’s technology. With secure video conferencing and the growth in tablets, smartphones and internet-enabled TVs you can now deliver a diagnosis through a secure video link into patients’ homes.
So there’s no need for them to wait in line at the hospital or GP’s surgery – they can access the best medical experts quickly and easily, no matter where they’re based.
Access patient records in a flash, wherever you are
Whether you’re at the roadside or in an operating theatre you can stay connected to critical patient information and access records in an instant.
With a secure virtual private network (VPN), you can have your very own secure network delivered over the UK’s only nationwide fibre optic network.

Share resources with other Trusts and agencies
With shared networks, you can break down obstacles to collaboration whether you’re sharing information with other NHS Trusts around the country or health charities and other agencies.
From sharing common functions like HR, call centres and payroll to pooling your resources to deliver better patient care, you can do more for less by sharing the load.
Say goodbye to prescription errors
Prescription errors cost the NHS around £354 million every year. With an intelligent network that links patient records to an automated prescription service, you can make sure your patients get the right prescription every time.
With secure links from medical centres to pharmacies, there’s no need to write out prescriptions – it’s all done for you. And because it taps into the patient records database, there’s no need to worry about errors.
