Transforming healthcare.
Improving lives.

Bold steps on the digital journey  

The health and social care sectors are on a mandated digital journey. Transforming ways of working and ensuring robust, secure connectivity are key pillars of the UK Government’s policy for delivering frontline services efficiently and cost-effectively.

Vodafone in Health collaborates with eConsult  

Vodafone in Health and eConsult Health have joined forces to help reduce patient waiting times and enhance patient safety across NHS Emergency Departments and Urgent Treatment Centres. eConsult’s digital triage solution was designed to automatically check-in and prioritise patients upon arrival based on clinical need, speeding up the streaming process, identifying sick patients earlier, reducing the waiting time and time to treatment.

Underpinning this is Vodafone’s secure digital infrastructure, enabling healthcare providers to accelerate adoption of the digital platform and ensure adaptability to scale based on patient demand.

Uniting our capabilities, we are striving to achieve our common goal of reducing health inequalities and democratising healthcare access, by building a truly digital front door to care.

Helping to shape the future of Healthcare  

The Government is striving to make digitally-enabled health and social care mainstream.

Our technology is facilitating faster turnaround and transfer of diagnostic images and data, providing patients with informed and timely information for a better healthcare experience.

We’re improving first-line contact for patients and concerned citizens by doubling the calling capacity of the NHS 111 advice service to handle 2,400 calls simultaneously. And we’ve provided relief staff for the surging service. Technologies like Software Defined Networking (SDN) and 5G have led to an explosion in interconnected gadgets, even robotic surgery, supporting better patient outcomes.

Connected Living

Our Connected Living project in partnership with Mencap is overcoming some of the obstacles to everyday living and changing the lives of people with learning disabilities.


How are we doing this?

The real winners of all this investment in tech are people on the front line. They’re already being empowered to deliver the type of care they want to deliver, aided by the best and most advanced tech money can buy.

Now, with the current global situation accelerating the need to utilise technology and connectivity to transform the way health and care services are delivered, we are truly beginning to see the art of the possible.

So, how are Vodafone empowering key workers?

Patients Prioritised - how Vodafone support CareTech

CareTech works across the UK, supporting people with disabilities and challenging behaviours, and helping them discover a more independent way of life.

The team were looking for a solution that would transform their admin process. By joining up their communications on to a single platform, allows carers to make effective use of time. They can spend less of it worrying about admin and more on what matters most – caring for their patients.

Connected Health

Patients and healthcare professionals are beginning to experience first-hand what greater efficiency looks and feels like. There’s less use of paper, while old equipment like pagers, faxes and out-of-date phone systems are disappearing.

Instead there’s growing use of 5G, cloud and data, as well as computers, gadgets, tablets and mobiles all talking to each other.

Our products are connecting clinicians with clinicians, clinicians with patients, patients with NHS places, NHS places with even more places – all making the everyday more efficient.

Vodafone DreamLab

Apps like Vodafone DreamLab are speeding up research to find new cures for current or emerging conditions, including cancer and COVID-19.
