This is how the eHealth solution developed by Neat works

Our online management platform offers greater efficiency and quality of care.

eSalud eHealthWithin the immense range of possibilities and applications that the digital world encompasses are telemedicine services. In this field, Neat has already come a long way thanks to the development of solutions designed to offer a personalized attention plan, aimed at promoting self-care, prevention of chronic diseases and the integration of social and health services.

Our personalized care plans are integrated into a cloud-based platform and are managed from the care centers.

Our telehealth solution is based on a series of sensors and a device with which the patient, in his own home, can take his vital signs measurements and send the results wirelessly to the cloud in a safe way where the health professional can consult them anywhere.

Neat telemedicine solutions are prepared to prevent, detect and control risk situations at all levels that define models such as the Kaiser Permanente Pyramid: high complexity patients, high-risk patients, chronic patients, as well as the rest of the population.

Advantages:

  • Cost-effectiveness, adherence to treatment and empowerment of patients
  • Event management: vital signs measurements, follow-up calls, reminder of medication taking
  • Data security and accessibility from anywhere and at any time
  • Portability
  • Agility in decision making
  • Reduction of workload of health professionals

Theresa May announces expansion of digital health services in United Kingdom

theresa-mayThe goverments in Europe need to accommodate the costs of health services to increasingly tight budgets and to progressive aging of society , and that is just one of the reasons why the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, has announced a project to help patients deal with mental health disorders expanding the digital tools in the healthcare system, which will entail a £67.7 million investment by the government.

“What I am announcing are the first steps in our plan to transform the way we deal with mental illness in this country at every stage of a person’s life: not in our hospitals, but in our classrooms, at work and in our communities,” said the Prime Minister.

The place chosen by May to announce this program was the Charity Commission, the non-ministerial government department that regulates registered charities in England and Wales, during an event dedicated to mental illness.

May explained that “online therapy has the potential to transform the way mental health services are delivered by allowing people to check their symptoms, be triaged online and receive clinically-assisted therapy over the internet much more quickly and easily, assuming it is clinically appropriate”.

“These treatments have been tested in other countries and they work. In the right cases, they can offer access to treatment far quicker than traditional services,” May added.

In Neat Group we are convinced that services such as telehealth can be a fantastic tool to save money and to offer high quality medical treatments at the same time, in a country where 1 out of 4 Britons suffers some common mental disorder, which means an annual expenditure of £105 billion ($131,3 billions).

Differences between telehealth and telecare

eHealthGreetings everyone. This is the first post of a new project that we hope will be interesting for all of you. A blog dedicated to telecare, telehealth (also know as telemedicine) and overall about the new technologies applied to public health.

Why a blog about telecare and telemedicine?

The increase in life expectancy and the emergence of more chronic diseases have made the health needs of our societies have changed considerably in recent decades, placing our national health systems in serious difficulties, both economic and service provision.

It is at this juncture that the new technologies are very important as tools to achieve greater efficiency in treatment to patients and savings for health systems.

Therefore, we believe it is important that everyone have accurate information about these technologies, so you can evaluate them properly.

Differences between telecare and telemedicine?

The first thing to ask is what is the difference between telemedicine and telecare, two terms used more and more, but they are often confused.

In the article “Telecare for an ageing population” published by Oxford University Press, Stuart G. Parker and Mark S. Hawley give us a good explanation about this issue.

“In the simplest terms, Telehealth includes remote patient monitoring in which sensors and electronic questionnaires are used to monitor vital health signs and symptoms remotely (usually in the person’s home) and transmit data to an appropriately trained person who can make decisions about potential interventions, without the patient needing to attend a clinic. The effect of telehealth interventions may, therefore, be expected to be seen in supporting patients to manage their own conditions in their own home and in reduced dependence on traditional primary or secondary care outpatient services, elective and non-elective hospital admissions.

Telecare, on the other hand, generally refers to the use of personal and environmental sensors in the home with the aim of enabling people to remain safe and maintaining independence, avoiding institutionalisation and reducing isolation”.

In conclusion, despite the differences in both systems, these two technologies are designed to improve the quality of life of chronically ill elderly as well as to assume major cost savings and efficiency to national health systems.
