Benefits

Oxevision gives teams the clinical insights they require to intervene proactively and to plan care so that they deliver safer, higher quality and more efficient care. Inpatient and residential care providers realise an immediate step change and continuous improvement in care by deploying the Oxehealth Service, which includes Oxevision.

Clinicians use our service to make a step change in many care outcomes. Here are the most common:

How Oxevision helps clinicians to verify patient safety

It is challenging for staff to confirm that a patient is safe and breathing.

Conventionally, clinicians must open a door or a hatch and peer into the patient’s room to check whether the patient is breathing.  This is highly disruptive to a patient’s sleep and privacy, especially if staff need to shine a light into the room to complete the safety check.

Oxehealths’s Vital Signs gives staff the ability to take a spot check measurement of a patient’s cardio-respiratory vital signs, without entering their room or switching on any lights. It also presents up to 15 seconds of live video to the clinician performing the check, so that they can visually confirm that the patient appears safe.

“Often we will have a patient that we’re worried about, but want to take positive risk taking in reducing observations and not go in and check on them all the time. Oxehealth offers us reassurance. We use the system to do spot checks which enables us to better manage patient risk. It allows patients to take ownership because you’re not going into their room."
Rachel Webb
Ward Manager, Swanswell ward (female acute), CWPT. RPsych and Faith Ndebele Webinar Flyer
“I think Oxehealth makes us very safe. It calls for help when you need it, but also when you don’t think you need help. I find it hard to ask for help or admit I might need help, but with Oxehealth you know it alerts staff when you need them and they will come and help you.”

Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust
“In one instance [staff member] came into my room to look at a drawing, and then [another staff member] came down the corridor to check I was OK having realised there was someone in my room. In that case I didn’t need help but I felt it was very receptive with no delay, which made me feel safe.”

“I see Oxehealth as a link to the staff when you’re ill. At night in bed, they can see that you’re moving and it’s a good thing because staff know you are safe.”

Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust
“I think Oxehealth increases safety for patients because staff carry around the tablet with Oxehealth on it. They can see an overview of what’s going on on the ward, without knocking on the patient’s door and it will alert if someone needs help.”

“I couldn’t imagine not having the system now in place. It’s something that makes us feel more secure and we feel it sets up safety for the patients.”
Tracy Beechey
Deputy Ward Manager, Stanley male ward, Manor Hospital, Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust.
“Sleep is crucial for patient recovery. We hope that by using Oxehealth to do observations, sleep will improve for many of our patients, which in turn could have a positive impact on their recovery.”
Dr Alvaro Barrera
Consultant Psychiatrist, Vaughan Thomas ward, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust
“It can be very difficult to see breathing at night time, especially if a patient is sleeping in an unusual position or with their back turned away from the door. This [the modified protocol] makes it much easier to see the patient is ok because it gives you their breathing rate”
Rumi Mohideen
Healthcare Assistant on Vaughan Thomas ward, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust
“I’m pleased that the system is proved to be safe and effective. The ward and management have been part of developing the new process so we know it works how we want. Nursing procedure has stayed the same and clinical judgement is paramount. It’s nice to see how quickly the team have embraced the system, even staff that had initial scepticism.”
Andrew Wood, Research Nurse
Vaughan Thomas ward, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust
“There’s no disturbance to patient sleep when we conduct our observations at night using the Oxehealth system. You are not making noise by opening the hatch or the door or switching on the light in the patient’s room. It is a very efficient system and I feel like it is improving recovery for our patients.”
