Supporting care with remote monitoring

The NHS continues to work on delivering more care to people in their homes.

NHSX is working with all 7 NHS regions in England to scale digitally enabled healthcare at home for people with long term conditions. This includes both physical and mental health, for people for whom home is a care home, and for acute COVID-19.

Watch our short animated video to find out how over 78,000 patients across England have been supported at home by using remote monitoring technologies as part of the NHSX National Innovation Collaborative between November 2020 to May 2021.
