COVID-19 has forced a re-engineering of healthcare in all settings and accelerated change in the NHS over the space of a few short months.

Optimising clinical systems and enabling patients to self-monitor, to aid the early identification and timely management of deteriorating patients (including those with COVID-19) in the community is a critical step in reducing avoidable deaths from all conditions, whilst potentially reducing capacity demands elsewhere in the system.

Remote assessments, patient empowerment and monitoring patients with acute conditions and other chronic diseases has become a new ‘normal’.

Virtual Wards offer patients personalised care they need at home, instead of in hospital. Virtual Wards offer multidisciplinary case management to patients at highest predicted risk of unplanned hospital admission, based on the forecasts of a predictive risk model. They integrate health and social care services at the organisational and patient levels. Using the staffing, systems and daily routines of a hospital ward with a social worker as a key member of the team they deliver highly coordinated preventive care at home to people at high predicted risk.

These services typically deliver types of home-based care not provided locally or can fill in the gap until established community services are available. Utilising this approach helps reduce Delayed Transfers of Care (DTOC), freeing up treatment inpatient capacity which can ease pressure on elective procedures, reduce administrative burdens and admissions from A&E.

This webinar will explore:

  • Providing person-centred care in times of COVID-19

  • COVID-19 virtual wards

  • Resources to support virtual ward rounds
