Oxehealth and our partners win awards at the National Positive Practice in Mental Health Awards
Central and North West London NHS Partnership Trust (CNWL) and Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (MPFT) were both nominated and shortlisted for various categories at the National Positive Practice in Mental Health (PPiMH) Awards on Thursday 7th October. Both won awards for their work with Oxehealth in implementing Oxevision.
CNWL was shortlisted for nine awards in total, resulting insignificant representation at the event. The trust achieved great success, and by the end of the night the CWNL team had walked away with six awards and three high commendations.
One of these wins was the ‘Older Adult Award’ for the deployment of Oxehealth in Older Adult Inpatient Wards. The successful implementation of Oxevision at CNWL has raised the standard of care across multiple service lines and enabled staff to be proactive in caring for patient’s safety whilst promoting sleep and independence.

Another trust that saw success at the PPiMH Awards was MPFT, who won the ‘Innovation in Digital Mental Health’ award for their implementation of Oxevision at St George’s Hospital in Stafford, with the intent to extend to other wards and their inpatient unit in Shrewsbury.
The MPFT nomination was based on the results the project achieved after only four months. Staff reported that the installation of Oxevision improved patient safety (100% agreed) as staff could prevent (38% agreed) and identify falls that they would not have known about (63% agreed). The system also increased the ease of monitoring their patients (75% agreed) and managing patient risks (88% agreed).
As a result, staff and carers within the ward felt more reassured that the patient was safe.
Helen Bagnall, Staff Nurse, said that Oxevision, 'is good to highlight hazards' and 'to create a care plan for a patient post-fall.'
Mary Beeston, Healthcare Support Worker, also noticed during her observations that the system improved the rapport between staff and patients - presumably due to the reduced frequency of staff needing to wake patients during the night to take vital signs, and patients feeling less agitated from interrupted sleep.
Oxehealth is a global leader in vision-based patient monitoring and management. We help clinicians to deliver safer, higher quality and more efficient care.
Our Oxevision platform enables staff both to plan patient care and to intervene proactively to help patients.
Unlike conventional remote patient monitoring companies, Oxevision includes a contact-free optical sensor that detects patient vital signs and behaviour and delivers a secure on-demand video feed.
Oxevision provides staff with a broader range of clinically validated early warning signs and risk factors than any competing technology, plus the ability to check the patient visually before choosing their intervention.
Our Oxehealth Service supports customers to deploy the Oxevision platform and to use it to create proactive, data-enabled systems of care that deliver not only a step change on deploying the system but also year on year continuous improvement in safety, quality and cost-efficiency.
The Oxehealth Service is relied on by one in three English behavioural healthcare providers and leading acute hospitals, care homes, skilled nursing facilities, prisons and police forces in the UK and Europe.
