Smart devices combined with reassurance calls to help increase contact and improve communication with patients to reduce hospital readmissions.
OKEachDay users are significantly less likely to be admitted to hospital, and their average length of hospital stay is shorter. In 2019 adults over 65 who were discharged from hospital were 20% more likely to be readmitted to hospital within 28 days, than those in receipt of our service. Furthermore, the average length of hospital stay for OKEachDay users was almost one third shorter. Aston University research conducted in 2019 also found that daily contact post discharge could cut readmission rates by up to 40%.
Analysis of NHS figures show that in 2018 there were over 400,000 Delayed Transfer of Care days (DTOC days) caused by patients well enough to go home, but waiting for an appropriate care package to be put into place. The features of the OKEachDay service mean many patients can be discharged sooner.
Why is this?
As a result a patient receives help sooner than otherwise would be the case and before their condition has worsened further.
We provide special compact devices that patients can be provided with upon hospital discharge. This ensures there is no gap in support from the moment the patient leaves hospital.
