Knowsley telehealth project saves £185,000 in 14 months

Categories: Latest News.

The telehealth remote monitoring of cardiac patients at home project by Knowsley Health and Wellbeing – jointly funded by NHS Knowsley and Knowsley Council – is calculated to have saved around £5,600 (US$ 8,650) per patient over the 14 months January 2009 and March 2010. 37 patients took part in the pilot, which will now be rolled out to more people and extended to other conditions. Interesting quote from assistant commissioning manager Darren Persand in this short item from the Nursing Times. [Do any readers know whose kit they are using? Leave a comment if you do.]
