A weekly ward round of care home residents would typically be completed face-to-face, but when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, there needed to be an immediate change to how these patient reviews could be completed.
Since June 2020, over 60 residents at Rushey Mead Manor Care Home and The New Wycliffe Home in Leicester have been monitored in a virtual ward by GP Clinical Lead Dr Amit Rama, using Clinitouch.

"By having Clinitouch in place, we have real-time remote access to a patient’s status and can triage more quickly and more effectively, while also saving healthcare resources including money, time, staff and equipment."
