KardiaMobile technology allows a clinically validated medical grade Single Lead and Six lead ECG in 30 seconds available in the convenience of a users own home. The ECG can then be shared directly with a health care professional remotely without a patient needing to attend a clinic or a face to face consultation. 

We understand many cardiology clinics are cancelled and ECG access for patients relying on them is difficult or impossible in the UK. Is there opportunity to work with you in the short term to support patients who require an ECG of this level but cannot get access to a clinic to have this with KardiaMobile?

There is also an interest for the use of the KardiaMobile6L technology to evaluate drug-induced arrhythmias for patients, so I wanted to share a recent update as well as the recent press release.

As you are aware prolonged QT can lead to drug-induced sudden cardiac death (DI-SCD), and is a side effect of certain medications being used experimentally in the treatment of COVID-19, including Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin.

KardiaMobile 6L is the only, 6-lead personal ECG device in the world. The device can record and display Lead II, which is one of the standards to measure QT and to calculate QTc. As a personal ECG it can help to save increased exposure of healthcare professionals to COVID-19 patients and the need for more personal protective equipment. I would greatly appreciate your insight in identifying areas where the technology could support and I would value your thoughts with how to progress this in the current situation.

The Mayo Clinic issued an emergency guidance and developed their clinical workflow utilising KardiaMobile 6L technology to record ECGs in order to evaluate drug-induced arrhythmias and to modify treatment accordingly. Would the technology be able to support your patient's and institution's, please let me know?

Our mission at AliveCor is to provide accessible cardiological care to those who need it most and we’re proud to play a part in the well-being of those fighting the coronavirus. For reference please see the below links regarding the utilisation of KardiaMobile for QT and I have also attached our medical affairs letter for EU.

Charles Bloe Training

Charles Bloe Training

We aren’t routinely doing face-to-face training at the moment - we are considering any requests on a case by case basis. However, we have moved a lot of our training programmes online.

Using Zoom platform we are running nurse-led webinars for a lot of clinical and mandatory subjects - these can be complemented by online courses and / or purpose-made videos. We can also create bespoke online courses should that be of interest. We are training registered nurses as well as health care assistants and carers.

This page gives some info re the training we are delivering (of note to practice nurses would be Basic life support and anaphylaxis / immunisation updates see below) :

We have also developed a programme to help upskill senior carers to take on extended roles during the pandemic:

Looking towards the ‘flu season (scarily not too far away) we are soon to advertise a ‘Flu Immunisation Refresher Online Bundle: this will be £40 & VAT and will give access to the following online courses: Influenza, Hep B, Immunisation refresher. The immunisation refresher is a new course which we have authored for Skills For Health.

It fully aligns to the National Minimum Standards and Core Curriculum for Immunisation Training for Registered Healthcare Practitioners. It is broken into 5 modules:

o Module 1: Current Issues in Immunisation and Vaccination

o Module 2: Keeping Up to Date - Vaccines, Legislation and Policies

o Module 3: Immunisation Schedule

o Module 4: Review of Current Practice: Administering the Vaccine

o Module 5: Immunisation and Vaccination 

We also provide immunisation refresher webinars either as standalone or to complement the online programmes. These would be focused around the implications of vaccinating patients in the COVID 19 landscape. 


Clarius Mobile Health

Our new HD Scanner Generation is very interesting in times of COVID-19, since lung ultrasound is essential. 

Due to the wireless technology and waterproof Design we have some strong advantages in comparison to other Systems which lead to this Discussion:

COVID-19 and Lung Ultrasound: Experts Suggest New International Standards
“To reduce contamination and promote sterilization, a wireless probe and tablets are the most appropriate ultrasound equipment because they can be easily wrapped in single-use plastic covers, they recommended. These devices are also less expensive than more traditional machines. Portable machines can be used if wireless equipment is unavailable, but they must be strictly dedicated to COVID-19 patients. Maximum sterilization procedures must be followed for cases, probe, and keyboard covers.”

Invatech Health Ltd

Invatech Health Ltd

Our company ATLAS eMAR provides an electronic medication management tool for carers and nurses in social care.

In response to the Covid 19 to support nurses in nursing homes we have developed the following:

1. A Covid-19 Symptom recording, risk alert and report. Nurses can take reading and record symptoms, they can get email alerts of patients who are at risk and can monitor all their patients via a report that can be printed every day.

2. The symptoms and readings have been made available to other digital platforms via an API. So nurses can view these within the context of the overall care of their patients.

3. To increase the number of staff who can administer medicines safely we have made all our e-learning courses available free of charge.

4. We are sharing our protocol for delegation of the task of medicines administration by nurses to carers. This follows best practice guidelines and has been evaluated by Cardiff University.

Locum's Nest

Locum's Nest

We have just released our new Covid-19 Workforce Report which aims to share guidance about accelerating workforce capacity during a pandemic such as Covid-19. In this report, we focus on how our contingent workforce planning technology can assist in rapidly deploying staff where they’re needed the most and covers recruitment, deployment and best practices to leverage the existing workforce which we believe is quite relevant for your members in this context. The report is available to download here.

We’ve opened up our platform for free to support the NHS’ COVID-19 response.
We are determined to open our platform of 30,000+ doctors to as many healthcare organisations as possible to help them meet the unprecedented increase in demand for additional clinician cover during this outbreak.
To achieve this safely and effectively, we are introducing:

1. Free use of our shift-matching software until at least July 2020
2. A dedicated Covid Response Taskforce to rapidly and remotely deploy the software within 5-7 days 
3. Digital recruitment campaigns, to be conducted across all our digital channels for each partner organisation free of charge
4. Temporary, flexible, transparent and non-binding T&Cs to enable rapid and remote deployment

Following national guidance, we are forming regional Covid-19 medical banks across ICS/STPs that will anticipate and support the predicted spike in staff requirements. The banks will minimise disruption to current processes and act as an extra, dynamic resource, allowing the NHS to quickly and safely deploy workforce to where it is needed the most.

Leveraging a unique partnership with, we are able to propagate shift requests across to over 150,000 doctors across the UK with hyper-focussed searches based on grades, specialties etc.

We have also released our Covid-19 Workforce Intelligence Navigator (WIN), allowing NHS organisations to better predict their workforce needs in the coming weeks and months, and enabling them to have the appropriate clinical cover already in place when required.

For the first time, we are triangulating our own user data with government released Covid-19 cases across the UK, and publicly available ICU data, allowing us to help NHS Trusts and hospitals manage their workforce more effectively by matching demand and supply - a critical need during such a pandemic scenario.

So any NHS Trust in the UK will be able to anticipate the number of clinicians they will need and when they will need them, as the pandemic passes through their geography, allowing much better planning, much better provision of services and, naturally, much better patient care.

We are able to deploy the solution at an NHS Organisation level within 5-7 days and form a shared regional Covid-19 bank within 2 weeks.  There is a 40-person strong team that are working as part of the Covid-19 Response Taskforce which comprises former doctors, software engineers, former NHS HR and Medical Directors as well as seasoned technologists, consultants and government officials.
We have transformed the platform to specifically target Covid-19 since mid-March and are working on 48-hourly sprint cycles with the technology, releasing new features and data tools for our NHS partners.  All of this work is done at zero cost to the NHS with non-binding, flexible T&Cs. 



National Care Force

National Care Force

1. This is a free online platform to connect volunteers with local social care providers in their community during the coronavirus outbreak. 

2. Social care is separate from the NHS, and will not see the benefit of any NHS funding or volunteer drive. 

3. The platform works like this:
- Volunteers sign up, listing their skills and experience
- Care organisations sign up, and contact volunteers to ask for help with opportunities at their organisation (eg picking up shopping, driving, making deliveries)

4. Biometric ID checks are performed by Onfido on volunteers during sign up. 

5. The National Care Force is a not-for-profit organisation, with charitable status pending.

The National Care Force has been endorsed by Care England and the National Care Forum.

Quotes from these bodies:

“The National Care Force will be a vital resource for care providers who are navigating through the staffing difficulties caused by the coronavirus" - Martin Green, CEO Care England

“National Care Force has come on line at just the right moment! People around the country will be wondering how they can help those most in need – and this platform will connect up those who can with those who need care and support. Our members absolutely know the essential role that volunteers play in the provision of great care, and we really welcome this initiative to super charge this effort at this time of need.” - Vic Rayner, CEO National Care Forum

We provide CPD accredited behavioural development courses for doctors: leadership, management, teamwork and teaching. These skills are at least as important now as they have ever been and development is particularly important for those who are finding themselves in an unfamiliar role. The big challenge is for doctors being able to access quality training.  So our online courses are an excellent solution.



Primary Care Pathways

Primary Care Pathways

We have a load of resources for GPs and their teams working on the front line.  All of these are free to download from our Facebook group.

We have:
• Our OneRemote template for EMIS and S1 which helps users record remote consultations.  It has the latest evidence built in, including breathlessness assessment, NICE guidance and conforms with the latest codeset releases and definitions and is kept up to date on a regular basis.  It includes a section for dealing with COVID risk categories, a palliative care section and a section for recording death administration information (date/time and also cause).
• This is supported by a number of other tools:
o COVID care plan  - prepopulated with information from the template
o Form 4 for cremation – again autopopulated from the template data entry
o Protocol for recording COVID risk categories – this also has the ability to send patients shielding letters, or let them know that they don’t need to shield if they aren’t in the highest risk group.

Hemo Control | Haemoglobin Analyser | brought to you by Prospect Diagnostics Ltd (manufactured by EKF)

Iron deficiency Anaemia (IDA) is under-diagnosed and under-treated in the UK - IDA can have a substantial impact on patients’ health, sleep and functioning - the treatment of IDA has been shown to improve patients’ quality of life - with appropriate interventions in primary and secondary care, many IDA patients can be kept out of hospital, which has increased importance at this time. The Prospect Diagnostics Hemo Control starter package can help you to achieve this goal. Offering portability, speed of measurement, low maintenance requirements, low cost per test, POC haemoglobin analysers offer an interesting alternative where haemoglobin is the main parameter of interest.

 The ability to instantly divert calls to another location or number in the event that a site has a failure or if access to the site is not possible, such as in adverse weather conditions
 Continual product enhancement allows the platform to evolve over time without the need for capital investment or additional charges
 swcomms is a Practice Index 5* rated supplier

Our cloud telephony solution essentially offers the same features and benefits of an on-premise IP telephony solution, with the exception that most of the infrastructure and consequently complexity is held within the core network in secure data centres, thus removing the need to host, manage and maintain telephony equipment locally.

We have already been offering free online stress and anxiety management sessions to NHS employees. These can be delivered individually or as group sessions. The 1:1 sessions are conducted around the needs of the individual. Often times they just appreciate a chance to chat. If necessary we use some NLP and/or clinical hypnosis techniques. Typically we end up teaching clients how to relax using breathing and visualisation techniques.

The group sessions are more structured. We focus on what causes stress collectively and individually and then discuss and practice a couple of techniques to manage this. This includes circles of control and acceptance, 7/11 breathing and hypnotic relaxation. 

During both the 1:1s and group sessions we do not ask anyone to reveal anything about their stressors (unless they want to), so they are completely confidential and safe.

1.) Temporary (or temp to perm) Hosted solution

We are able to forward calls from a surgery’s number to a hosted platform. We can put in a network level Auto Attendant for advisory messages and press 1 for x and 2 for y options. Each user then has a mobility licence, meaning that they can have an app (mobile or PC) that they can download which becomes their extension on the hosted platform meaning that they can work from anywhere with internet access.

If they currently have SIP trunks, they can even transfer calls back to DDI numbers in the practice as we would only forward the relevant numbers onto the hosted platform. If they still have ISDN, then it is an all or nothing scenario as when you forward ISDN, all DDI numbers are forwarded too.

On premise systems will continue to work for outbound calls. Any sites where you may want to load the app to a PC / laptop on site, you will need to allow the download and traffic through your firewall.
The cost of this solution is as follows :
User set up fee £50 (one off) per user
User licence £14.95 pcm per user (includes 2000 mins to 01,02,03 and 2000 mins to uk mobiles)
Call recording £5 per user pcm

We are offering the above on a 90 day contract which then goes onto a 30 day rolling contract so there will be no hefty early termination charges or surgery’s stuck in long term expensive contracts.
We can add all the clever stuff like call monitoring and management software too but this has additional fees and takes longer to build and train.

As we are using call forwarding to achieve this, it will incur call forwarding fees (usually around 1p per min dependant on provider).
We are able to have this kind of thing up and running in around 2 days. It can also be pre-built so the surgery can test it before forwarding their number.

This solution is available to existing and new customers alike and will buy the surgery the time to consider any replacement systems in the future. If the Coronavirus thing dies down in a few months, they can simply switch it off and go back to how they were with their incumbent supplier.

2.) Short term mobile contracts

We are also offering short term mobile contracts for new and existing customers. The following prices apply :
a.) Unlimited calls / texts and 6 gig of data is £15pcm for a 90 day contract and £13pcm for a 12 month contract
b.) Unlimited calls / texts & data is £30 pcm for a 90 day contract and £24 pcm for a 12 month contract

The above are SIM only, but we can also supply the mobile devices if required. Anybody requiring a 90 day contract will have to pay for the device up front. Anybody wanting a 12 month contract or longer, we can spread the device cost interest free over the term.

Please feel free to share this information across the CCGs, surgeries and CSU

We appreciate how busy our NHS colleagues are right now so there’ll be no hard sell to anyone.
