comfort of the patient’s own home.
Patients can get on with leading as normal a life as possible in the knowledge that their condition

By monitoring vital signs and wellbeing the patient can make timely interventions to better manage
their condition and prevent it escalating into something more serious.Prevent Escalation
With the unique SmartMed Relative Portal, carers and relatives can keep a
re-assuring eye on their loved ones condition and health from their smartphone or tablet device. A
subset of the patient’s vital signs and well being questionnaire responses are displayed in tabular
or graphical form so relatives can monitor progression and spot any potential concerns.
The messaging capability of the SmartMed Relative Portal allows relatives to keep in touch with the
patient, no matter how far apart they are. So whether you are in the same city or on a completely
different continent you can be safe in the knowledge that your loved ones are managing their illness
well and are in the best possible state of health.
Reduce Travel Time
Nurses and community care workers can spend less time travelling to and from patients’ homes and
more time delivering quality care.

The Patient is Your Helping Hand
The patient will be more knowledgeable about their progress and the management of their condition
and more engaged in the treatments and monitoring regimes you wish to implement. This makes the
healthcare professional’s job that little bit easier.
Keep In Touch with Patients
Through SmartMed messaging, a patient managing their own condition from home is far from isolated
and forgotten. Reassuring contact is always available via the phone, email, SMS, instant messaging
and even video conferencing so you can always chat to and re-assure your patients whatever their
SmartMed results are telling you or them.

This helps reduce travel time and means doctor and nurse time can be better utilised, without
impacting the level of care.
Reduce Waiting Lists
Reduced A&E admissions, shorter periods of in-patient care, quicker post operative discharge and
a need for fewer, less frequent out-patient attendances are just some of the potential benefits that
a well implemented mHealth solution can bring.

evidence based decision making and risk stratification, facilitating timely intervention.

Carer’s Quality of Life Can Be Improved
The patient’s family and carer can also monitor a subset of the patient’s health assessment data, so
they can live their own lives. The carer also knows that the clinicians are also remotely monitoring
the patient’s condition. There is also potential for fewer trips to the GP and hospital.
