Clinically Connected Care Home Report
A new report has indicated how clinically-led, technology-enabled models in care homes could release £1 billion NHS capacity a year if deployed nationally.
Tech-enabled care in practice
Over the past five years there has been a series of successful initiatives to support patients in care homes, using clinically-led telecare and telehealth.
One of the pioneering initiatives is NHS Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)’s Quest for Quality in Care Homes. Led by senior nurses to improve the health of care home residents, it has reduced emergency admissions by 44 per cent.
Connected care home opportunity
Commissioned by Tunstall, the care home report studies the results of large scale initiatives, combined with national government data to model the impact this could have at an NHS England (and STP, CCG) level.
£1bn NHS capacity released
226,000 emergency admissions avoided annually
Hospital bed days reduced by 2.5 million

“Patients in care homes represent just 0.7% of the population, but use a disproportionately large share of the NHS’s resources. That is why reducing avoidable admissions and prolonged hospital stays has become a priority for healthcare commissioners and STPs.”
