Huma remotely monitors the patient’s vitals, symptoms, and medication, and reports the data to the patient’s care team. Doctors can connect with patients for remote consultations directly through the app.
Monitoring patients with chronic health issues can mean frequent check-ups with their medical team, which is inconvenient for the patient and costly for the healthcare system. Limited communication between the patient and their doctor between appointments can result in symptoms being missed.
Huma provides continuous patient monitoring in their own home, and the ability to check-in with the patient’s doctor any time a concern arises. The remote patient monitoring system is configured depending on the metrics required by the doctor – This allows it to be adapted for different uses. For example, the needs of a cancer service are different from a diabetic team. Once the necessary devices are set up, the patient connects to the mobile app, which allows them to contact their doctor when required.
The data that can be continuously collected includes symptoms, vital signs, and medication. When doctors review the information through the platform, it is displayed as having been seen on the app, so the patient knows their healthcare team is actively monitoring their health.
Doctors can review the data from multiple patients in the dashboard to see who may need support quickly. Alerts can be customised according to relevant criteria. The ability to connect with patients directly through the app can save on unnecessary visits to the clinic or hospital and empowers users.
