Refero believes that true digital care should bring physical and mental benefits to the patient, and professional gains to the clinician, in line with the NHSX objectives of bringing the benefits of modern technology to every patient and clinician.
The NHSX focus on ensuring that NHS systems can talk to each other across health and social care, and improving clinical care with human-centric tech will see patients with Long Term Conditions such as diabetes, cystic fibrosis, ME and arthritis being empowered with easier, less debilitating access to care. Refero is answering this challenge.
Our objective is to give secondary care staff, particularly those treating LTC patients, more time with people in need of their help. Refero creates channels of communication between clinician and patient that we are all familiar with, like video calling and instant messaging, and makes them NHS applicable, safe and easy to use.
