Recently, Alder Hey won the award for 'Best COVID-19 Telecommunications Solution' thanks to the incredible hard work of the Alder Hey Digital team, supported by the Innovation team and Alder Hey Children's Charity, who fully funded the initiative.
When the Coronavirus crisis hit, we saw telehealth as essential to implement as part of the programme immediately, to support accurate, remote clinical decision-making. The Trust already had a relationship with InTouch Health and the Innovation and Digital teams and Alder Hey worked together to build telehealth solutions bespoke to the needs of the Trust and the other sites it works closely with. We have now implemented a variety of telehealth solutions in the Neonatal Department, High Dependency Unit and the Emergency Department, including InTouch robots and bespoke devices for telehealth and virtual ward rounds.
