Remote monitoring

NHSX (on behalf of NHS England) is seeking to help scale remote monitoring care across the NHS in England with a particular focus on COVID-19 patients and the management of patients with Long Term Conditions (LTC) to support care during the next phases of the pandemic. The purpose is to allow organisations to access monitoring solutions for local deployment. To bid and to get more info go here.
I am told that tomorrow’s briefing is now open again, though worth booking soon! Closing date currently shown as 29th May.

(Members may note with interest that only recently at Rewired 2020, we were being told that NHSX handles strategic digital NHS, whereas NHS Digital manages delivery.)
