Remote health monitoring for eating disorders

It is well known that COVID-19 has disrupted care provision across the NHS. As it became clear that processes would need to be put in place to help reduce the risk of infection, the Cornwall Partnership trust, an organisation providing a suite of mental health and physical health services to children and adults in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, had to seek an alternative approach to continue caring for children with eating disorders.

Their service provides treatment and support to those aged over 11 with Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Restrictive Eating Disorder, among others. The normal process means that children have to go to the clinic for the monitoring of vital signs and symptoms.

To continue to support its patients and adapt to the new situation, the trust worked with Tunstall, a known provider of connected care and health solutions, to deploy remote health monitoring. 

Read the case study attached to see how Tunstall and Cornwall delivered the transition and see some of the early results and feedback from clinicians.
