Careology partners with the London General Practice to launch Careology Connect

Careology, a health tech platform that helps those diagnosed with cancer to navigate their journey, has partnered with The London General Practice to launch ‘Careology Connect’.

The technology will allow healthcare teams to remotely monitor their patients’ Covid-19 symptoms in real-time and intervene when medical attention is required.

Using wearable technology the platform connects patients with their clinicians and caregivers, allowing medical professionals to monitor their patients in real-time and make any necessary interventions.

The app connects with Bluetooth wearable devices to automatically record users’ temperature, heart rate, weight, and activity levels. Users can also log and track the progression of their Covid-19 symptoms and oxygen saturation, alerting the London General Practice when symptoms are severe enough to warrant further medical attention. Patients can also share this information with remote family and friends.

Richard Pisarski, Managing Director at London General Practice, said: “During the coronavirus pandemic we have listened carefully to our patients needs and have created a solution to help better support them, whether they are at home or returning to the office.”

“Our ‘Corona Safety Net’ offer combines clinical video consultations with patient self-management. We send our patients equipment such as blood pressure monitors and Oxygen monitors through the post or by courier, and these vital signs can then be automatically synced with their Careology Connect mobile app.”

“Our patients log and score their symptoms as they progress and if there are any issues, they are then flagged to our Doctors through the Careology Professional dashboard. This dashboard shows their patients’ health information in real-time and enables us to proactively intervene if needed. Careology Connect adds to our suite of tools used to provide flexible, personal care to patients which is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.”

Paul Landau, Founder of Careology, said: “Earlier in the year, as Coronavirus started to take grip, it became clear that our existing Digital Cancer Care technology could be used effectively to help everybody track and monitor any Coronavirus symptoms – making it easy to share if things were improving or getting worse.”
