Join Eastern AHSN as we bring together NHS providers and commissioners with innovators and solutions to delivering a digital outpatient service.
Estates and Facilities Management
After staffing costs, providing and maintaining health and care service buildings can be one of the highest areas of spending. Families and patients also describe the importance that facilities play in treatment. What innovations could be deployed in estates and facilities management that would improve both patient experience and efficient delivery of services?
Cambridge Respiratory Innovations Ltd (CRiL)
CRiL has developed a hand-held device to measure the level of carbon dioxide in the breath. N-Tidal enables patients with chronic respiratory conditions, such as COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and asthma, to directly monitor their lung performance at home and take appropriate measures to avoid distressing exacerbations and potential hospitalisation.
Beringar has developed ground-breaking new technology that provides a comprehensive digital picture of how NHS buildings are being utilised. The system detects both human activity and equipment (location and movement). It also monitors eight different environmental factors to support better human-building interaction.
