Case Studies – Northern Care Alliance – Kraydel

A case study in Enhanced Discharge to Assess Pathway

How Konnect supports Enhanced Discharge to Assess Pathway

Northern Care Alliance evaluated Konnect for virtual consultations and remote monitoring, including paired bluetooth devices to measure temperature, blood oxygen % and blood pressure. A number of quantitative and qualitative parameters were evaluated to assess Konnect’s efficacy:

  • The effect on patient isolation and loneliness
  • Support for independent living and reduced anxiety
  • Monitoring of patient wellbeing data using the dashboard
  • Patient engagement with the service as a result of familiarity (Konnect is designed to avoid technology-anxiety by using the patient’s own TV).
