Entering a tracker is easy for patients
They receive reminders to track and for their meds
They can see messages from the doctors ‘well done’, ‘call to book an appointment’, etc…
Doctors can set thresholds for patients, set tracking reminders, send messages & see patients medications
When patients fail to record they turn ‘amber’, when they break their thresholds they turn ‘red’
The workflow is set up to deal with large numbers of patients quickly, and to enable Nurses and HCAs to take tasks from doctors
See everything a patient tracks in their Health Touch app, in easy to read charts, with thresholds and alerts. You can quickly respond through direct messages and reminders
Send messages to your patients; to remind them to take meds; to track; or words of encouragement and support. With Health Touch, patients feel better connected.
Health Touch highlights ‘out of threshold’ patients; you can focusing quickly on those that need most help, or patients that are not taking their medication
Remote visibility of patients health stats means less visits to hospital, better medication, and less readmissions.
Health Touch patients app is free, and designed to help patients take more control of their own health management.
Patients can track their own health stats and medications. You can set reminders to help them stay on track with monitoring.
Patients own their data – they can see history and charts. They only share with their own network of clinicians and carers and can manage who sees their data at any time.

CODSS – Covid-19 Wellbeing Digital Staff Survey
Partner: Royal Free Foundation Trust
Dr Uma Ramaswami & Team
Through the COVID-19 Pandemic, Royal Free Foundation Trust recognise that their staff, and the whole of the NHS, have gone above and beyond normal working conditions. High levels of disruption stretched staff and increased risks to staff and their families of infection all contribute to higher levels of stress for staff.
Dr Uma Ramaswami. Lead Clinician for Lysosomoal Disorders Unit at RFL, had the idea of CODSS, a weekly wellbeing survey, delivered via Health Touch and using validated wellbeing questionnaires, to better understand the effects on staff over time. CODSS will complement and support other initiatives at the Trust
At Health Touch, we believe this is an incredibly important initiative at a time when the country is depending on our NHS to care for and support so many affected in this pandemic, so the team here have gone above and beyond themselves to support Royal Free Foundation Trust to deliver the CODSS survey and capabilities in Health Touch to manage participants, track data completion and deliver the datasets for trend analytics.
Dr Ramaswami and her team chose three questionnaires to track wellbeing over thirteen weeks; Personal Copenhagen Burnout Index, WHO (Five) Wellbeing, and the GAD7 Anxiety scale. In addition, Health Touch built a bespoke demographic questionnaire to enable the Royal Free London to be able to review impacts in different age groups, job types ethnicities, abilities and teams.
All staff across the Trust can volunteer to take part in the CODSS survey, which will provide a unique perspective of the impacts of the pandemic on NHS staff wellbeing.
