Effortlessly Manage Patients within your Virtual Wards using Florence Intelligent Health Messaging

Florence Intelligent Health Messaging is supporting the NHS to relieve the pressures within healthcare, through a spectrum of Virtual Ward solutions that allow clinicians to more easily manage their patients at home. By automating patient signposting and promoting self-management for the majority, clinicians can focus on the minority of patients who really need them

“This allows clinical teams to do more, with less. Increase the number of beds in your virtual ward, without adding extra workload into the team.”

Without effective, cost saving digital solutions that drive behavioural change and enable patients to take more control of long-term chronic comorbidities, the burden on the NHS will continue to increase.

Caring for patients at home

During the pandemic, having access to virtual wards was vital, as it enabled hospitals to discharge patients who still had coronavirus but with an improving condition, which allowed the release of beds for more critically ill patients.
Now, the Virtual Ward model has taken a huge next step not only within hospitals but it is having significant success throughout the continuum of care.

“Florence is already supporting 6 million+ people who are waiting for care at their local hospitals”

What defines Virtual Ward and Virtual Care?

With so many virtual care and virtual ward initiatives out there (Remote Monitoring, Video Consultations, Appointment Reminders, Personalised Outpatient Programmes to name but a few), this can become a confusing space.
However, as we move towards a more aligned and integrated healthcare system, supporting people at home through technology enabled tools, such as Florence Intelligent Health Messaging, allows the patient to take more control of their healthcare, which frees up time and resources for clinicians, providing more fulfilling patient encounters; will become the one clear goal for all.

Virtual Wards: Remote Monitoring to reduce unnecessary hospital admissions

For some NHS services, people who attend A&E can be admitted directly to virtual wards, where they are assessed by a specialist team and shown how to use remote monitoring tools such as Blood Pressure or pulse oximeters. This gives the power back to the patient to understand their own health needs and maintain their wellbeing at home.

Virtual Care: Intelligent enabled care that supports NHS Initiatives

Florence is used by the full NHS Ecosystem and humanises clinically validated protocols and delivers precise, psychology-based, two-way health messaging that engages patients continuously to change their behaviours and create better, sustained outcomes.

Not only is Florence one of the most-cost effective Virtual Ward suppliers, we are also the most effective in terms of patient engagement through virtual care.

Supporting NHS Initiatives (see figure below) that starts with patient self-management, is what Florence does best; facilitating the return of readings and symptoms reporting, delivering educational messages, appointment reminders, medication adherence, pain management and lifestyle preparations between clinical contacts.

Florence Care@Home and Hospital@Home initiatives free up time and resources for clinicians, activates positive behavioural health and is proven to improve health outcomes, medicine compliance, patient education and makes people feel less alone.
