A hospital service pioneering the use of an app allowing heart failure patients to self-monitor their condition at home has been shortlisted for an international award

Ealing Hospital looks after one of the highest concentrations of heart failure patients in the UK and says remote monitoring platform LUSCII is a game changer welcomed by patients and hard-pressed clinical staff.

The app allows patients to monitor their blood pressure, heart rate and weight and send them to cardiac nurses who can provide advice and support, such as upping their medication.

Emil Elias, Advanced Nurse Practitioner in Cardiology, said, “Data has shown a significant reduction in the 30-day readmission rate and outpatient attendances for our heart failure virtual ward patients.

“The optimisation of heart failure therapy has also been more effective and higher than the national average resulting in improved patient and staff satisfaction with improvement in clinical outcomes and better service delivery.”

To date, 120 patients have passed through the programme with 30 currently on the heart failure team’s books.

The benefits include reducing unnecessary hospital visits and admissions, minimising any potential complications and better management of medications.

The winner of Luscinia Award will be announced in October.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact info@neighbournet.com and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
