APARITOS TIMELY RESPONSE TO COVID-19 FOR AT RISK ONCOLOGY PATIENTS
Aparitos technological offerings are highly configurable, hence the ability to respond quickly to the current pandemic. Five weeks and two days after the COVID-19 pandemic was announced by the WHO, Aparito had successfully secured the Techforce19 NHSX contract which allowed for the deployment of the remote patient monitoring technology. By the 26th of April, the first oncology patient at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) was onboarded onto the system.
The configuration deployed within Aparitos platform allows for the remote collating of patient-specific metrics on a longitudinal basis, irrespective of the disease. The metrics measured are both qualitative and quantitative, and as a result provide a well rounded and in-depth portrayal of each patients experience. The addition of a clinician portal and dashboard also allows clinicians and all individuals invested in the care of a patient to monitor metrics remotely, and in real-time.
COVID-specific configurations were made for this deployment, which was in keeping with the current scientific evidence available. This allowed for the development of a “Symptoms Checker” comprising identified COVID-19 symptoms, which was accessed through the mobile application with an alert and notification to patients to complete. Additional metrics were aggregated by the Garmin wearable device which was selected for this deployment because of its availability, cost and easy to use approach which appeals to patients. Data capture is made easy as Aparito is a Garmin Partner and benefits from the SDK Companion allowing us access to raw data such as:
-Oxygen saturation within blood (SPO2 [spot check in the day time and and continuous while asleep]) -Heart rate (per minute) -Proportion of light and deep sleep -Number of steps taken -The type of motion carried out and the intensity
The following three parameters were reported manually by patients through the mobile application: -Respiratory rate -Temperature -Blood pressure
