HT&Y The Health Tech and Age Award Shortlist: MonitorMe

axa_awards_v1

MonitorMe is a not-for-profit networked system centred around an intelligent landline telephone that captures clinically validated vital signs in accordance with the Royal College of Physicians NEWS score. It makes earlier hospital discharge possible and introduces a new way to provide long term care of the elderly and vulnerable in their own homes.
The system is controlled by your clinician/GP and is the first to access and store data on your patient record. As well as offering immediate benefits to the health provider exclusivity is our goal we do not silo data but use recognised standard measures to make it work for the individual and the community. This lays the foundations of mass data driven epidemiological decision-making and an ecosystem of novel ways to drive down healthcare costs.

Judges Comments:

“Utilising the landline telephone for the elderly to be able to monitor their vital signs”

“Easy to use for the elderly”

“Can be monitored by a health professional without the patient having to go see their GP”
