Reducing DTOCs and hospital readmissions

Digital devices with regular ‘check ins’, medication and appointment prompts and monitoring of recovery or deterioration enables earlier discharge and lower readmission rates.

OKEachDay users are significantly less likely to be admitted to hospital, and their average length of hospital stay is shorter.

A review of 200 Alertacall customers over 65 who were discharged from hospital found users of the service were 20% less likely to be readmitted to hospital within 28 days than the comparable demographic group not on the service.

Furthermore, the average length of hospital stay for OKEachDay users was almost one third shorter. This supports Aston University research, conducted in 2019, which found that daily contact post discharge could cut readmission rates by up to 40%.

Analysis of NHS figures show that in 2019-2020 there were over 1.8 million Delayed Transfer of Care days (DTOC days) caused by patients well enough to be discharged, but waiting for an appropriate care package to be put into place. The features of the OKEachDay for Health and Care service means many patients can be discharged sooner.
