Clinitouch, one of the UK’s leading digital health SaaS platforms, today announced its availability in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure.
Clinitouch customers can now take advantage of the productive and trusted Azure cloud platform, with streamlined deployment and management. The availability will also expand the use of innovative remote patient monitoring technology across Great Britain and into new territories around the world.
With “hospital-at-home” emerging as an increasingly vital model of care since the Covid-19 pandemic, this new co-sell agreement is aimed at fostering partnerships between organizations interested in building out innovative virtual care programmes in health systems around the globe.
Running on Microsoft Azure, Clinitouch is one of the UK’s foremost remote patient monitoring apps, already deployed at scale across several regions within the National Health Service (NHS), covering populations of over a million patients.
The technology enables healthcare teams to monitor patients’ vital signs and symptoms remotely for any health condition, providing alerts if any changes or concerns arise.
This reduces the need for in-person visits and helps to optimise vital clinical resources, making it fast and easy to see which patients require intervention, and provide treatment at home without generating a hospital visit.
“As hospitals and clinics continue to see rising demand from an ageing population and increasing prevalence of long-term health conditions, the need for ground-breaking new ways of delivering care in homes and communities only becomes greater,” said Bruce Adams, commercial director for Leicester-based Spirit Health, the developers of Clinitouch.
“We’ve already proven that our tech delivers better patient outcomes in the NHS, with the software powering several new “virtual wards” across the country, covering health conditions as diverse as diabetes, COPD and colorectal cancer.”
“This new partnership with Microsoft provides an exciting opportunity for us to foster relationships with other innovators in the digital health space, harnessing the potential of Azure cloud-based technology to scale up the software to help many millions of people around the globe access better healthcare.”
“Through Microsoft Azure Marketplace, customers around the world can easily find, buy, and deploy partner solutions they can trust, all certified and optimized to run on Azure,” said Jake Zborowski, General Manager, Microsoft Azure Platform at Microsoft. “We’re happy to welcome Clinitouch to the growing Azure Marketplace ecosystem.”
The Azure Marketplace is an online market for buying and selling cloud solutions certified to run on Azure. The Azure Marketplace helps connect companies seeking innovative, cloud-based solutions with partners who have developed solutions that are ready to use.
