Virtual care, including remote monitoring and virtual ward models has shown to reduce hospital admissions, and encourages patient self-management and autonomy. The need for and availability of these services was accelerated by the pandemic, with NHS England now targeting 50 virtual ward ‘beds’ per 100,000 patients by December 2023. To effectively deliver these hospital-at-home services, NHS trusts and systems are looking to the private sector organisations for support.
This category recognises organisations who have worked in genuine partnership to set up and deliver services that enable safe, effective virtual care. Winners will be projects that involve the patient in their care plan, equipping them to contribute to their own recovery, and have potential to scale up to meet future care demands.
- This award is open to any private or third sector organisation which works in partnership with an NHS organisation or system on the specific development or implementation of a virtual care service
- These can be single partnerships or joint working projects, but must demonstrate evidence from the past two years up until the awards deadline date
