The cost of treating lung conditions is approximately £9.3 Billion per year. With pulmonary rehabilitation currently only being offered to 13% of eligible COPD patients along with ambitious plans to expand pulmonary rehab services over the next ten years, a paradigm shift was needed in how the NHS can deliver remote, exercise-based care.
Rehab Guru, an end-to-end patient management software focussing on empowering exercise as medicine, continues to work in partnership with trusts and higher educational establishments to deliver a remodelled pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) service that is aligned with the NHS’ Long-Term-Plan to create a sustainable and effective PR service.
Pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is just one of the many health conditions where Rehab Guru demonstrates this utility. It has evolved from a digital exercise prescription tool to a full-featured patient management system with a library of over 5000 diverse and inclusive exercises, medical notes, Telehealth, exercise and wearable data tracking, patient reported outcome and experience measures.
Through a recent pilot using Rehab Guru across the Northwest region, it has been demonstrated that PR services can be expanded to reach more patients through new models of digitally enabled care. Rehab Guru’s tools provide support to a wider group of patients, promoting self-management of their conditions, supporting their rehabilitation needs as well as informing clinical and workforce decision making.
The valuable work that Rehab Guru has done across Cheshire and Merseyside has highlighted that the NHS could benefit from a staggering 60% cost saving and a 50% time saving per programme delivery.
This combined proposes a capacity increase of 55-60% which could have a significant impact on the treatment of lung conditions across the NHS. Based upon these results, Cheshire and Merseyside have made the decision to rollout Rehab Guru across the whole ICS. We look forward to continuing our work with industry experts to further rollout Rehab Guru across the NHS and wider healthcare services.
