Whzan Blue Box reduces hospital admissions & 999 calls in Surrey



Health Innovation Kent Surrey Sussex (KSS) report shows proven reduction in hospital admissions and 999 calls


Since launching in 2011, Whzan technology has been adopted across a nationwide range of care settings to improve the health of vulnerable people, supporting the work of care professionals and relieving the strain on the NHS.


Primarily known for our Blue Box and Virtual Wards, our tech is now used to monitor over 140,000 patients daily across the UK – delivering accurate assessments, informing crucial decision-making and protecting people at risk of deterioration.


 

Health Innovation Kent Surrey Sussex has supported the implementation of the Whzan Digital Health Blue Box in care homes for over five years.


Following a small pilot in 2018 by October 2023, 60 more Blue Boxes had been set up in 40 homes in Surrey, with 400 NEWS2 assessments submitted each month.


Their findings showed a 53% reduction in hospital admissions, 41% reduction in 999 calls and a 36% reduction in unplanned GP visits.


A wider report by Health Innovation NENC showed eight care homes made savings of more than £750,000 in one year by using The Blue Box.


Paula Hook, Registered Manager at Woking Homes commented…


“The Blue Box is a must for every home. We’ve been using them for about a year, and they’ve really transformed things for us. We no longer need to contact the doctor every time we’re worried about a resident – we have the data to help us. The Blue Boxes give the staff confidence in what they’re doing and keep everyone reassured including the residents as they get to know what is normal for them. Our relationship with our GPs has improved because we don’t have to call them out so often.”


We’re delighted that we’ve been able to help
