Telehealth and remote health monitoring – the way forward
CheckUp Health is a brand-new digital healthcare provider offering private GP video and audio appointments to all UK residents from anywhere in the world, along with an array of rapidly growing services.
With a passion to make healthcare more convenient, effective and accessible to all, Fungai Ndemera set off to deliver this vision by founding CheckUp Health, which has already experienced an accelerated growth due to being successfully awarded a prize from Innovate UK to help fund a pilot study on remote monitoring and advising of blood pressure and/or blood sugar in patients of the BAME nationalities, as they were having worse outcomes in the COVID-19 pandemic.
The pandemic has rapidly accelerated the growth and development of digitising healthcare. Doctors and patients have relearnt what can be dealt with appropriately by video or audio consultation and what still needs to be assessed in person.
Remote consultations are now more accepted, desired, and of higher quality than ever before and with the emergence of many home health technology solutions this will only continue.
CheckUp Health’s highly experienced medical team will offer advice on the best way to approach your problem, whether it be privately or through the NHS. Offering 20-minute appointments, the medical team has the time to listen to your thoughts and concerns without you feeling rushed.
