For patients

How do we support patients?

Improved patient experience, reassurance and QoL

Continuous monitoring, check-ins with care team, and ability to see a double-tick ‘seen’ sign when a clinician has reviewed their information makes patients feel safer and cared for, whilst they are at home.

Supported self-management

Patients feel empowered to manage their own condition without coming to hospital.

Capturing health information in one place

Patients can record vital signs, symptoms, medication and outcome measures quickly, securely and easily. This improves adherence and understanding of their health status.

Better adherence to care plan

Ability to continuously track symptoms, and vital signs, and communicate with healthcare professionals if necessary.

Telemedicine

Ability to activate telemedicine to enable healthcare professionals to speak with patients when necessary, and securely.

Educational content

Patients have access to condition-specific information and guidance which has been selected by their care team. This helps patients navigate their condition more easily and maximises engagement.

Benefits

How does our solution support
healthcare systems?

Reduce burden on hospitals

Care teams can proactively manage patients at home, rather than in hospital settings. This reduces unnecessary appointments and provides an insight into potential future demand.

Better manage capacity

Healthcare systems better utilise their workforce (by enhancing capacity), supporting clinicians to safely manage larger cohorts of patients compared with telephone-only follow-ups.

Ability to triage patients

Care continuity and clinicians to prioritise care based on early identification of patient deterioration. This helps reduce unnecessary complications, A&E visits and outpatient appointments.

Example

Reimbursement
opportunity

This is Dr. Weber, she has 1,000 patients. RPM will help her better manage her patients and will give her patients peace of mind that they are being looked after between visits.

Implementing RPM means Dr Weber also has the opportunity to generate $2,278,080 per year of new revenue for her practice while delivering better care, and optimising her and her team’s time and resources.

Get started

How the solution works

Step 1: Define patient
population

Determine the patient cohort that would benefit from remote patient monitoring, whilst specifying outcomes you want to achieve.

Step 2:
Configure solution

We will work together to determine the metrics that should be tracked and collected, selecting from a library of modules to address your needs.

Step 3: Patient
education and setup

CPT99453 ($18.77, 0.52 RVU)

We train the Healthcare professionals and care teams on how to use our solution. We also provide templates for onboarding emails/SMS that care teams can use to send out to their patients, and a microsite for patients with information on how to get set up. This is billed once per episode of care, which must be a minimum of 16 days in length.

Step 4: Supply kit of
devices & instructions

CPT99454 ($62.44, 1.73 RVU)

Based on data collection requirements, we will jointly determine the need for connected devices and discuss options for integration. This is billed once per 30 days. The minimum length of the episode of care is 16 days.

Step 5: Patient
downloads app

Patient receives a unique code to download the Medopad app. They install the app, complete the sign-up process, and give consent before populating their profile.

Step 6:
First consultation

CPT99457 ($51.61, 1.43 RVU)

The first 20 minutes of monitoring time within a calendar month. This is billed once per 30 days. The service is delivered under general supervision, meaning that it does not need to be the physician who does the monitoring.

Step 7: Virtual
check-in

G2012 ($14.80, 0.25 RVU)

Using a web-based portal, you have the ability to monitor and manage multiple patients at once, and check-in with the ones most in need.

Step 8: Use data to
better care for patient

Use consented data to continue to improve understanding of diseases, and to aid development of treatments and prevention measures.

Case Study: RPM for Cardiovascular patients

Chelsea and Westminster
NHS Foundation Trust

The challenge

A major driver of the healthcare system burden for Cardiovascular patients is hospital activity, particularly when a patient’s condition deteriorates and they require a non-elective admission. Cardiovascular patients average length of stay is 50% higher than the average for all diagnoses (10 days vs. 5 days).

Our solution

The Medopad solution develops a schedule for unscheduled care for patients with Heart Failure, Chest Pain, and Pre-eclampsia using digital enablement. Patients are able to report on their health status using the Medopad App. Their data is transferred directly into the Care Information Exchange (via Patients Know Best) to be used by healthcare professionals across North West London.

The results

Through Remote Patient Monitoring, we see results in fewer unnecessary ED visits, fewer unnecessary inpatient bed days, better patient experience, and enhanced patient self-management whilst reducing the overall cost per capita.


“As part of the NHSE Test Bed Programme we partnered with Huma to empower our patients. Through the continuous monitoring of their health, we aim to reduce pressure on A&E and outpatients and avoid hospital admissions and reduce hospital bed days. During the COVID-19 crisis, Huma’s solution can allow hospitals to continuously monitor and engage with their patients without the need to bring them into the healthcare system where there is an elevated risk of them contracting COVID-19”.

Felix Vaal, Senior Project Manager for Digital Innovation,
Chelsea and Westminster Trust

Case Study: OUR EXPERIENCE IN COVID-19

Live projects in the UK (NHS)
and Germany

The challenge

COVID-19 has placed unexpected pressures on healthcare providers globally. The lack of capacity and resources, along with social distancing restrictions, have made it significantly harder to triage and assess all patients in-person, resulting in the need to safely manage individuals remotely.

Our solution

Huma’s Remote Patient Monitoring solution allows patients to remain at home under the supervision of their care team. This reduces unnecessary travel and exposure to others, and eases the burden on healthcare providers who are at capacity. Care teams are able to configure thresholds for alerts and use the flagging system to identify COVID-19 patients’ health deterioration or improvement, adjusting care plans accordingly.

The results

In a sector where technological implementation can typically take time, our quick to deploy solution met the required regulatory needs and went live in under two weeks.

The solution has had an overwhelming success to date, with 6 live sites across the UK and 13 across Germany, zero mortalities and the number of patients monitored at home to more than double.

Feedback from clinicians suggests technology-enabled remote monitoring is highly valuable, cost-effective and sustainable both in primary and secondary care settings. Feedback from patients has been overwhelmingly positive, with over 90% of patients actively using the App to report vital signs and symptoms within the first week of use.


“This is a great example of how new technology is supporting healthcare professionals to provide the right care at the right time. With COVID-19, it’s vital that we make use of digital tools that can help support patients who don’t need immediate hospital care and allow close monitoring of their condition. The feedback we are getting from patients is that the remote monitoring with clinical oversight is really reassuring to them, and they are grateful to be at home while they recover, rather than in a hospital bed. The clinical team is finding it helps give them very rapid feedback on their patients and they are able to keep an eye on a number of people at a glance, which is working much better for them than the previous system which relied on phone calls.”

Tara Donnelly, Chief Digital Officer, NHSX

“I just want to say a huge thank you for the fantastic level of care I received when I was unwell. Your dedication, the daily phone calls, access to the app and delivering all my medications to me were greatly appreciated.”
