Local Care Direct is leading the way in the development of innovative services to support people with long term conditions at home, empowering them to manage their own health and avoiding unnecessary hospital attendances and admissions.
By linking the latest remote-monitoring technology directly to our specialist clinical support team we are helping to care for people with chronic health needs in their own home – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Our cutting edge healthcare service is currently being piloted in Leeds in partnership with Alere Connected Health. It provides a menu of services for patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) which monitors vital signs including blood pressure, heart rate and blood oxygen saturations.
Patients are telling us they really like the service. Clear evidence is emerging of the improved health outcomes the scheme is achieving and this is generating interest among health commissioners and business partners across the country.
