Cardiology and digital health

The NHS Transformation Directorate has outlined several key areas for digital health in cardiology. CheckWare supports these initiatives and their aim to improve patient outcomes and streamline cardiology services:


These digital health initiatives in cardiology align with the broader goals of the NHS to improve healthcare delivery through technology, enhancing patient outcomes and service efficiency.

Remote Monitoring of Vital Signs: This involves using devices and digital platforms for remote monitoring to identify rapid deterioration in patients' conditions. Such monitoring is crucial in cardiology for conditions like heart failure and hypertension.

Virtual Rehabilitation Services: Providing patients with digital tools for self-management, including real-time feedback on adherence to rehabilitation programs. This is particularly relevant for patients recovering from cardiac events or surgeries.

Digital Services for Heart Failure Management: Similar to hypertension management, offering digital services for patients with heart failure can greatly enhance patient care and monitoring.

Digital Services for Atrial Fibrillation (AF): Providing digital care options for patients with AF, aiming to improve the range and responsiveness of care services.

Efficiency in Catheterisation Labs and Operating Theatres: Implementing digital solutions for managing and scheduling patients in real-time, which can improve patient safety and productivity in these critical areas.

Remote ECG Monitoring and AI-Assisted Analysis: Adopting new technology for faster and more accurate ECG reporting, which is vital for timely cardiac care.

Online Cardiac Rehabilitation: Development of digital cardiac rehabilitation services to support self-management, an important aspect of post-treatment care in cardiology.

Remote Monitoring for Heart Failure to Reduce Hospital Admissions: Introduction of remote monitoring services for heart failure patients to measure vital signs from home, reducing the need for emergency care.

Telemonitoring for Hypertension in Primary Care: Implementing telemonitoring at scale for hypertension management in primary care settings.

Digitally Managing Preoperative Hypertension: Using telehealth services to manage hypertension before surgery, which helps in reducing surgical cancellations.
