Staff can gain additional insights with activity reports. These reports enable staff to review night-time and day-time activity.
Protected privacy and security
Ward staff can only see a clear, 15-second video into the room when taking vital signs spot check measurements with the medical device.
National guidance on consent
The National Mental Health and Learning Disabilities Nursing Directors Forum created guidance in 2022 on the use of vision-based patient monitoring technology in mental health care. Oxehealth recommends providers follow the informed consent regimes laid out in the national guidance, see here.
Co-produced patient resources
A series of resources (e.g. patient leaflets and posters) were created by patients, carers and clinicians in association with the National Mental Health and Learning Disabilities Nursing Directors Forum for hospitals to provide to patients where vision-based patient monitoring systems are used to support care, see here.
Enhanced data for incident review
Providers choose whether or not to retain clear video data for up to 24 hours to assist in serious incident reviews. This encrypted data is held securely on the providers’ premises and only accessed by authorised senior staff.
No need for a wearable device.
There is no microphone. Oxevision cannot pick up any sound.

1 The Oxevision housing unit contains an infrared-sensitive camera that relays information to designated fixed screens, tablets and/or mobile devices on a ward/unit. It is a fixed-installed solution within hospitals, general care, and secured environments where a framework exists that mandates periodic checks by a trained professional to ensure subject safety. The Vital Signs software is registered as a class IIa medical device in the UK & Europe. It is intended for non-invasive spot measurements of pulse rate (50 to 130 ± 3 beats per minute) and estimated breathing rate (8 to 39 ± 2 breaths per minute). It does not provide alerting or alarms for vital signs. The Vital Signs Trends chart is a feature within the Vital Signs software that shows a summary of average vital signs to inform decisions to take further vital signs spot check measurements or check on patients and cannot be used to measure or monitor pulse rate or breathing rate. The Activity Tracker software (including activity detection, fall risk, location risk, inactivity warning, flexi room, refresh room, activity report and recent incident review) are Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS) products. They are not medical devices. Oxevision Observations is an Electronic Medical/Health Record product that is designed to assist reporting activities and is not part of any medical device.
