The solution? A weight management service that uses simple technology.

The Health Call Weight Management Programme, designed by clinicians, aims to help overweight patients achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

Our weight management programme allows healthcare professionals to remotely monitor their patient’s progress, and provide support when needed.

The patient can choose to be contacted through either a landline or mobile telephone, where they’ll be called at a pre-agreed time. Here they will be asked questions around their general well-being, and will be asked to record their weight.  The patient uses their telephone keypad to answer questions and record their weight.

Our technology then assesses the patient’s weight and BMI. If readings fall outside of a pre-agreed parameter, alerts can be set up to make contact with the patient.

Readings are then able to flow into clinical systems such as EMIS WEB and SystmOne. This means that the data inputted by the patient can flow straight into their patient record, enabling clinicians to have access to the most up-to-date information for every patient.

Similar to our other award winning services in undernutrition and INR, this service uses simple technology that both patients and staff can easily use. This technology allows healthcare professionals to remotely monitor their patient’s progress, and provide support when needed.
