In the current situation, one of Sweden’s largest healthcare providers urgently needs to provide healthcare with the necessary purchases to best provide the conditions to take care of its citizens. The initiatives are taken both in relation to the current acute situation and needs that arise if the situation lasts over a longer period.

Expected volumes up to 30 000 patients

To jointly tackle the problems that COVID-19 causes the most fragile and vulnerable patient groups, there is an intense work going on for both parties to be able to scale up and take in a large volume of patients for remote care. The expected volumes are up to 30,000 patients or more. At first, the most fragile patients in specialist clinics will be provided with the remote care solution, then patients in primary care centers will follow.
Cross Technology Solutions AB provides its digital solution LifePod to remotely monitor patients’ clinical values outside the healthcare provider’s physical environment.
“This is extremely powerful and important to us – several years of work with clinical studies as a foundation enable us to immediately create direct social benefits together for a lot of vulnerable and fragile patient groups,” says Thomas Bergqwist,  CEO, Cross Technology Solutions.

Benefits of digital care during COVID-19 outbreak

The purpose of the introduction is to free up care places, facilitate communication between patient and caregiver and limit physical contact that may involve a risk of infection. Distance care reduces physical presence in health care facilities, it protects patients and health professionals, reducing the risk of infection.
LifePod shall primarily meet the following needs:
• Prevent unnecessary hospitalizations and create conditions for early discharge from hospital
• Remotely monitor patients with chronic diseases or other risk factors
• Remotely monitor infected patients outside the caregiver’s physical environment.

How remote care works with Lifepod in short:

Patients report their medical values via smartphone, tablet or computer and have multiple opportunities to communicate with their healthcare provider. Health professionals see this in a patient overview including an automatic prioritization of who needs a medical intervention immediately, who needs closer observation and who is doing well right now.
