Broadmoor Hospital rolls-out state of the art technology

07 September 2020

West London NHS Trust’s new state of the art hospital has installed Oxehealth’s Digital Care Assistant (DCA) in every room of its new hospital. The use of Digital Care Assistant further enhances Broadmoor’s inpatient mental health care, reinforcing its commitment to provide both patients and staff with the most advanced technology available to improve safety and promote wellbeing.

The Digital Care Assistant has been installed across most of the site (178 rooms) with one area to be completed.

The Digital Care Assistant provides contact-free patient monitoring, including giving staff access to vital signs measurements. It helps clinicians plan patient care and intervene proactively – improving patient safety, the quality of care provided and improving patient experience.

This deployment at the new Broadmoor Hospital shows the potential for mental health professionals globally to deploy innovative technology to deliver a step change in inpatient mental health care.

Leeanne McGee, Director of High Secure and Forensic Services at West London NHS Trust said: “We are delighted to have rolled out this technology across Broadmoor Hospital.  The Digital Care Assistant will help provide additional support to staff to enhance patient experience as well as ensuring even better patient safety within a high secure environment.”

Hugh Lloyd-Jukes, chief executive of Oxehealth, said “The new Broadmoor hospital is a high secure hospital facility providing state of the art facilities for patients and staff. We are delighted that West London NHS Trust have decided to continue their six-year partnership with Oxehealth and build the Digital Care Assistant into their standard of care for all patients. We hope the service will play a significant role in enabling Broadmoor’s clinicians to establish a new international standard for patient safety, quality and experience in the years to come.”
