Kinseed’s core purpose is ‘Connecting the Disconnected’ – whether that means people, information, or processes. Working with Great Ormond Street Hospital, Kinseed identified a major gap in accessing patient data. The monitoring of patients during transit to the hospital was predominantly manual and high-effort. A solution for real-time monitoring did not exist and handover processes were manual, slow and prone to error.
Using a standard bedside monitor to track patients’ vital signs, Kinseed created an application to access and analyse this data in real-time, which consultants could access from their phones and tablets at Great Ormond Street Hospital or from wherever the specialist resided when providing care. The challenge for Kinseed was connectivity. The company needed a partner that could provide reliable and robust connectivity, ensuring that consultants were able to access critical patient data without issue.
The Vodafone Managed IoT Connectivity Platform enables Kinseed’s MediConnect devices to output data in near real-time, allowing consultants to monitor every journey and proactively intervene should they spot an issue. Patient handover is much smoother as the hospital consultants are fully aware of the history and have had direct access to the medical data during the transport journey. There are no gaps; clinicians have a full picture of a patient’s medical data.
Kinseed is currently in talks with other hospitals with a view to deploying the solution across 24 hospitals and the Vodafone service provides the scale to expand quickly.
