Supporting 1,000,000 Hours of Care

We are proud to have supported the NHS with over 1,000,000 hours of care.

We want to say a big #ThankYou to our NHS partners. Together, we have achieved a new milestone, the Oxehealth Service have helped clinicians deliver over 1,000,000 hours of care.

Hugh Lloyd-Jukes, CEO, comments:

“The team and I are immensely proud that we have now supported clinicians through the 1,000,000th hour of the Oxehealth Service. Thank you very much indeed to all our partners for reaching this milestone with us. We are privileged that so many clinicians trust us to help them to provide ever-better care to their patients. We look forward to working with you over the next 1,000,000 hours of care - and many more after that."

From today, Oxehealth will be arranging special #ThankYou gift basket deliveries to all of our Oxehealth Champions in recognition of their dedication to patient care and patient safety - and their hard work in supporting their teammates to use the Digital Care Assistant to support patients. Follow the #ThankYou tag on social media to stay up to date with the celebrations.

Since 2012, Oxehealth has been supporting caregivers to deliver an ever better standard of care to patients and residents. Clinicians have been proactively using the Oxehealth Service to monitor the vital signs, activity and wellbeing of patients across a range of NHS care settings including mental health facilities, acute hospitals, prisons and care homes. Users of the Oxehealth Service are acutely aware of the benefits it affords them in carrying out their daily activities:

“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.” reported Tracy Beechey, Deputy Ward Manager, Stanley.

“The system is part of our team… It’s our 6th team member of staff on the night shift…it cannot do the hands-on care, but it can give you more time [for the hands-on care].” observed Linda Fitzpatrick, Ward Manager, Stanley.

About Oxehealth

The Oxehealth Service gives clinicians, carers & custodians more time for hands on care where and when they are needed most.

Oxehealth systems incorporating the Digital Care Assistant can help staff prevent serious incidents, reduce the risk of falls, take spot check pulse rate & breathing rate measurements and understand patient behaviour better. Our Service includes software which uses secure optical sensors to generate the alerts and reports clinicians, carers and custodians need, seamlessly slotted into their existing workflow. Oxehealth serves customers in mental health, police, prison, acute hospital, care home & homecare settings.

Oxehealth was the first joint spin-out of the University of Oxford’s Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust. The company was founded by Professor Lionel Tarassenko, Head of Engineering at the University of Oxford, in 2012.
