Spirit has been able to optimise its data costs and to provide predictable, reliable services to its clients and patients by eliminating the reliance on a single network. This has enabled the company to expand its services into new geographical areas and to provide a better level of care to a greater number of patients.
A reliable connection allows better monitoring, letting patients stay at home longer whilst providing the reassurance of regular contact and the knowledge their key clinical and non-clinical measures are being monitored around the clock.
Over a 12-month period Spirit’s CliniTouch solution helped to avoid, in one health economy alone, 163 admissions, saving the NHS over £350,000 – achieving an ROI of 200%. Nurses were able to manage a case-load of between 70-100 patients daily, a significant increase on traditional capacities.
The Caburn M2M Insight Portal provides Spirit Healthcare with a snapshot of its SIM population in real-time. Users can log on and access the number of SIMs currently operating, the status of each SIM, key metrics relating to each one, as well as an estimate of what the month-end usage will be. Complete transparency puts Spirit Healthcare in control.
“We have a great product but a sub-optimal mobile data infrastructure was inhibiting our technology being used to its full potential,” said Quentin. “Caburn’s technology has had a huge impact in expanding the opportunities for CliniTouch.’’
