Event description
Join our interactive webinar on 9 December for the latest information on COVID Oximetry at Home Pathways.

About this event

The event is being organised by the Managing Deterioration Patient Safety Network for North East North Cumbria, together with the region’s Respiratory Network. We are delighted to announce that Dr Matt Inada-Kim, Consultant Acute Physician at Royal Hampshire County Hospital and the National Lead for COVID Oximetry@home will be presenting from a National perspective and there will also be a presentations on the Tees Valley pilot. There will also be an opportunity to discuss digital technologies that have been developed to support this work.

The agenda can be viewed here

The need to detect early signs of deterioration in patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 is a significant challenge in health and social care. COVID virtual ward models use pulse oximeters to safely monitor and support patients in their own home, providing an opportunity to detect a decline in the patient’s condition at an early stage. Early detection has been linked with reduced mortality, hospital length of stay and the number of patients requiring intensive care. From the patient’s perspective, this can enable them to remain at home with the reassurance that they are being monitored and there are appropriate escalation plans are in place if their condition deteriorates.

The event will provide an excellent opportunity to share ideas and identify solutions to any issues and barriers that may present themselves when setting up the model in local systems.

During the course of the event we aim to:

  • To explain the background to this piece of work from a National perspective and outline its importance
  • To share the learning from the Tees Valley Pilot including use of digital apps.
  • To provide an opportunity for delegates to ask questions and raise issues regarding the setup of COVID Oximetry @home in their localities

This event is aimed at:

  • CCG and ICS staff with involvement in COVID Oximetry @home/virtual wards
  • GPs/GP Practices inc. Practice Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, HCAs etc
  • Clinicians working in Secondary Care Respiratory/Emergency Departments
  • Members of Northern England Clinical Network North East
  • Members of the Managing Deterioration PSN
  • Members of the NENC Respiratory Network
  • Voluntary Sector organisations e.g. NHS Volunteer Responders
  • Other organisations with an interest in the agenda e.g. Ambulance Service, 111 & Out of hours service etc.

The NHS has produced guidance to all clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to recommend ‘’COVID Oximetry @home’ models are rapidly implemented. Visit the NHS website here for further information.

Organiser The Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria

Organiser of Setting up a COVID Oximetry at Home Virtual Ward

The Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria (AHSN NENC) is dedicated to improving healthcare and supporting wealth creation through partnership working and promotion of innovation across the NHS, Academia and Industry.

With a remit to provide system-wide integration, we facilitate interactions with multiple partner organisations across the region. Principally we work with the NHS Trusts, CCGs and Universities which form our core membership, and we collaborate closely with many other stakeholder groups. We support the inclusive, collegiate approaches that are needed to address shared problems at a system level.

Wealth Creation and Health Improvement have a common requirement for innovation. The AHSN NENC supports all aspects of innovation across healthcare from creating a culture that supports the innovation through to the dissemination and adoption of effective practice and proven technologies.

We have therefore achieved the regional reach and the local buy-in that is necessary to deliver cross-organisational programmes to improve health and create wealth in the region.
