Coronavirus sparks massive increase for digital healthcare

HSJ reports that Livi, which provides remote consultations to the NHS and across Europe through an app, has recorded a 107 per cent increase in consultations from 1 February to 13 March compared with the six weeks before. Consultations with people who have “viral symptoms” were up 240 per cent, while new registrations also increased by 64 per cent.

The primary care tech company Nye Health has also had a rapid uptake of its new platform that allows all GPs in the NHS to carry out appointments remotely, designed specifically to respond to the current pandemic. The company has expanded its offering and told HSJ it is now receiving contact from “dozens of practices and trusts” across the country each day.
