We start by recognising that receiving mental health care, and other forms of inpatient or nursing care, can be a challenging experience. We also recognise that caring for patients with mental health and other problems can, at times, be a challenging experience.
We created Oxevision, an assistive and additive technology, because concerned mental health nurses asked us to develop a system that might help them to deliver better care to their patients - care that is safer and higher quality - from the start patients codesigned the system. We've been working with mental health clinicians, patients and carers on that challenge since 2014.
Oxevision, a vision-based patient monitoring platform, provides insights that can enable clinicians to plan patient care better and to intervene proactively to help patients. Unlike conventional remote patient monitoring products, Oxevision incorporates a regulated medical device and an infrared sensitive camera which can be used to measure a patient’s vital signs and provide location and activity based alerts to clinicians. It also delivers a secure on demand video feed.
Oxevision provides staff with a wider range of contact-free location and activity based alerts, reports and vital signs measurements than any other technology, plus the ability to check the patient visually if needed to support on-the-spot decision making.
Our Oxehealth Service supports customers to deploy Oxevision in order to use it to create proactive, data-enabled systems of care that help deliver not only a step change, but also year on year continuous improvement in safety, quality and efficiency.
The Oxehealth Service is used by 50% of English NHS mental health trusts as well as acute hospitals, care homes, skilled nursing facilities, prisons and police forces in the UK and Europe.
