As part of OHT week, which ran the week of May 11th, OHT volunteer Jess Morley brought together a little list of digital innovators who twisted, turned, pivoted and rose up to the opportunities that the pandemic provided.
1st (on our non-ordered list...) is @heypatchwork
Their app connects hospitals with staff to quickly fill vacant shifts and ensure wards are fully staffed
Life Lines allows family members to see and speak to their loved ones via a tablet using an app on a secure online platform + meet the clinical team providing care
We had a lot of love for @MedwiseAI in our digital innovators' response to crisis list
All these help manage our mental health, and during this time, have been made freely available to health and care workers!
It's an an app to fast track volunteers into clinical and non-clinical roles to support the fight against COVID19
We luuuurve @SimplyDoIdeas
They'll develop a virtual community of NHS medical professionals currently in self-isolation who can be unlocked virtually to help solve #COVID19 care challenges set within the platform
In our list of digital innovators flourishing and storming ahead during the pandemic is @meetnye!
Nye enables any clinician to telephone/video any patient from any device, anywhere. SIMPLES
Next up we have @BirdieCare!
"Birdie will deploy a free, national care worker app with a COVID-19 symptom checker, integrated with the NHS 111 service, to identify confirmed or suspected infections among the elderly they care for"
COVID status tracking (people being cared for & staff)
PPE status tracking at individual/office level
Case reporting across all care settings
Next up our little list is @feebris
Feebris aims to help carers triage the day-to-day health needs of their residents during the COVID19 pandemic
Next up is @accuRx
accuRx is an NHS Digital approved econsultation system providing video consultation, patient questions and 2-way patient conversations
DrDoctor have launched a free Covid-19 toolkit for NHS Trusts including broadcast messaging and video consultations
And finally, our last COVIDy (??) digital innovator of this list is @myCinapsis!
They provide virtual specialist advice on referrals & end-of-life care. e.g. In #COVID19 - For GPs/paramedics on whether patients should be transported to an ICU or community hospital
That's a wrap folks! Check out the original Twitter thread here
