The SurgeryPod uses patient self-measurement to reduce costs and create efficiency for the GP surgery. Patients can use the device, instead of seeing a GP or practice nurse, to check vital signs and instantly upload results into Vision as Read Codes. Patients can get checks when it’s convenient for them: reducing DNAs, increasing patient satisfaction – and saving time for clinicians.
