How it works
Oxehealth exists to help clinicians help patients.
We start by recognizng that receiving behavioral health care, and other forms of inpatient or nursing care, can be a challenging experience.  We also recognize 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 behavioral 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.  We've been working with and for behavioral health clinical teams on that challenge since 2014.

Oxevision provides staff with a wider range of early warning signs and risk factors 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 more than 50% of England’s behavioral health providers as well as acute hospitals, care homes, skilled nursing facilities, prisons and police forces in the UK and Europe.
