Remote patient monitoring

We've been assessing the safety and effectiveness of home oximetry, which measures blood oxygen levels, as a community pathway for managing COVID-19 patients. Working with colleagues at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and NHS Digital, we've been evaluating a range of procedures which revealed facilitators of successful remote monitoring.

Our findings contributed to the NHS's decision to roll out COVID-19 home oximetry across England in early November 2020. With our partners, we are now exploring whether this approach can improve outcomes and help people access the services they need.
