Telehealth Service Could Help NHS Manage Winter Hospitalization Surge

29th November 2023

Cera, a mobile medical treatment company, has pledged to save the NHS £100 million by decreasing hospital admissions through the use of AI during online appointments.  

The mobile health service has claimed that the AI feature has been strategically designed to alleviate pressure on the NHS in anticipation of the winter surge in hospitals. By conducting five million medical appointments and online ward visits, the company claims it can avert 52% of hospital admissions. 

The telehealth service anticipates and interacts with vulnerable individuals in advance of the NHS’s yearly winter spike by using data analysis as well as virtual wards. This is crucial to the NHS’s plan for managing this year’s surge.  

 Head executive of Cera, Ben Maruthappu, commented, “With greater focus now being placed on the delivery of effective care at home, it’s clear that increasing demands are spurring an important transition towards digital-led and AI-enabled solutions.” 

Maruthappu went on to add, “Moving patient care from hospital to home, where appropriate, is one of the most effective ways to reduce the burden on our already-overstretched healthcare services that are facing increasing budget cuts.”
