'Covid Oximetry @home' describes an enhanced package of care for individuals with confirmed (or suspected) COVID-19 who are at risk for future deterioration. NHS England and Improvement wrote to all CCGs and trusts to encourage the development of local CO@H projects.
The 'CO@h' package of care involves the remote monitoring of the patient's condition through providing regular contact with a local health care team who will reassess the individuals symptoms (including oxygen saturation levels). This close monitoring enables the individual to remain at their usual place of residence whilst allowing early signs of deterioration to be identified and escalated quickly and appropriately.
This material has been designed primarily for use across the South East AHSN network by colleagues within the Wessex AHSN, Kent Surrey Sussex AHSN and Oxford AHSN regions. Colleagues from regions beyond the South East are also very welcome to make use of this toolkit in setting up their own local approaches to remote monitoring.
