Whzan Digital Health has deployed another 60 of their Blue Box systems in care homes across Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes (BLMK). Using our innovative technology, the Blue Box helps spot deterioration in care home residents, getting support early and avoiding emergency admissions to hospital.
The Blue Box is a clever all-in-one telehealth system measuring vital signs using a thermometer, pulse oximeter and blood pressure monitor, all wirelessly connected to a portable computer. It automatically calculates a health score called NEWS2 (National Early Warning Score) shared with healthcare professionals to deliver treatment sooner.
Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Integrated Care System has been implementing and delivering this technology to care homes with 250 Blue Boxes already helping 7,000 care home residents.
Dr Paul Singer, BLMK Integrated Care System, Chief Clinical Information Officer, said:
“The Whzan Blue Box is a fantastic piece of equipment supporting staff in our care homes to carry out health observations for residents to ensure any signs of deterioration are picked up quickly reducing ambulance visits and hospital admissions.”
Keith Chessell, the CEO of Solcom said, “We’re delighted to support BLMK in looking after their care home residents. This brings the use of our technology into more than 2,500 care homes in England, looking after almost 80,000 vulnerable people.”
