The use of video consultations and other telemedicine solutions also promotes service integration across locations. Commissioners gain the opportunity to create truly integrated services across primary, secondary, social care and the voluntary sector.

It enables patients to be cared for in their own homes and care settings, avoiding hospital attendance wherever safe and practical. With Immedicare’s services, commissioners can facilitate the right care at the right time, spreading capacity, and reducing the costs of ambulance journeys and hospital dominated care.
