Delivering an effective remote healthcare service to care home residents

Arden & GEM and Tekihealth will be presenting at the Digital Primary Care Virtual Conference, organised by Convenzis, to share how a remote clinical examination solution is enabling healthcare services to be delivered to care home residents during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Digital Primary Care Virtual Conference: Shaping the Digital Future of Healthcare, will take place on Wednesday 3 February, providing an update on some of the key digital primary care initiatives currently being implemented. Arden & GEM’s Head of Digital Transformation, Adrian Smith and Tekihealth Co-founder, Dr Stephen Katebe will be presenting a diagnostic set specifically designed for remote clinical examination at the event, Teki-Hub.

COVID-19 presents a particular risk for the care home setting with many frail and elderly individuals, often with compromised immune systems or pre-existing medical conditions, living in close proximity. Isolating this group and reducing the risk of rapid infection is even more challenging set against a circulating group of healthcare workers and increasing demand for care home visits from clinicians.

NHS Arden & GEM CSU and Tekihealth are working in partnership to provide a solution specifically designed for remote clinical examination, enabling the doctor to conduct a full clinical assessment through the use of pioneering tele-diagnostic equipment.

The conference session will focus on the experience of care homes in Staffordshire, Wolverhampton, Dudley, Coventry, Norwich, West Yorkshire and Scotland, who are already using Teki-Hub, including the benefits the system is already delivering for both clinicians and care home residents.
