A promise we make to those buying Whzan technology is, if implemented and used properly, it will make a tangible, measurable and significant difference. It’s specifically designed to enhance patient and resident assessments, enable confident decision-making and deliver significant savings in time, resources and money.
Recent reports from two regions who have implemented Whzan products over the past couple of years detail their experiences using Whzan and the significant results they’ve seen.
LLR (Leicester, Leicestershire, Rutland) Connected Care Programme
LLR ICS Connected Care Programme recently ran a pilot of digital deterioration monitoring tools in care homes across the region. This pilot saw Blue Boxes deployed in 32 care homes to measure resident vital signs and escalate concerns.
A report was recently published on the initial results of this pilot - these were the findings:
So far, homes have taken over 5,800 observations – 422 of these were full NEWS2 scores
There had been a noticeable reduction in hospital admissions and ambulance callouts
Communication between homes and GPs/nurses had also improved
Learning disability homes especially benefitted
Estimated savings were over £600,000 over four months
Further savings were likely if the pilot was expanded
The full report put together by the wonderful Tara at These Hands Academy can be found below.
Mid and South Essex ICS
MSE ICS established two virtual wards in January 2022 – Respiratory and Frailty. The aim being to provide hospital-level care at home, avoiding admissions and enabling early discharge.
A report was published, analysing the impact, performance, outcomes and lessons of the virtual wards between January and July 2022. The results were as follows:
There was an estimated reduction of 1,406 acute hospital bed days, this brought an estimated saving of £1.3m
The monthly savings are estimated to be £100,347 in the Respiratory ward and £230,202 in the Frailty ward
Other positive outcomes included increased patient independence reduced infections and low readmissions
Recommendations of the back of these findings were to optimise operations, expand capacity, address existing barriers and continue the evaluation.

Outcomes like these are exactly what we set out to achieve with our technology.
Organisations with limited budgets are seeing huge savings and their people are able to deliver a better service for their patients and residents. Most importantly, vulnerable individuals are being kept out of hospital and able to live healthier lives in the place they call home.
