EMIS Health Live: Performing diagnostic enabled virtual ward rounds in care homes

23 Jul 2020 12:30-13:30

This lunch & learn session will give you an opportunity to hear real life examples of how Arc's video consultation technology is allowing clinicians to remotely examine patients in care homes from their surgery.

EMIS Health Live: The New Normal


Using Arc, you can remotely examine a care home patient during a live video consultation from your surgery. This allows you to:

  • Remotely auscultate heart, lung and abdominal sounds and examine ears, throat and skin
  • Measure patient observations like pulse rate, oxygen saturation, blood pressure and temperature
  • Reduce travel time by completing 94% of consultations without needing a face-to-face appointment
  • Undertake virtual ward rounds to reduce transmission of COVID-19 and minimise care home visits
  • Remotely assess deteriorating patients to provide faster care and avoid unnecessary hospitalisation

The session will show real life examples of how Arc is being used in practices and care homes.
