Spirit Digital’s CliniTouch Vie platform uses remote monitoring to help patients self-manage conditions and enable healthcare teams to proactively monitor patients safely at their home or usual place of residence, enabling prioritised focus on those who need support. The platform supports pathways and conditions including Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), heart failure services, frailty patients and care home healthcare, and early discharge and post surgery services. The platform has been particularly relevant during the Covid-19 pandemic as COPD patients are in the high risk category.
