WINNER: Oxford Health FT: Improving Sleep on Inpatient Mental Health Wards

Nurses in mental health hospitals conduct in-person night-time observations as often as every 15 minutes. These checks significantly disturb patients’ sleep and privacy whilst taking a great deal of staff time.

Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust has partnered with Oxehealth to deploy a novel, contact-free and vision-based, patient monitoring platform, Oxevision. The technology enabled staff to take unintrusive and contactless observations to avoid sleep disturbance and promote mental health recovery. Results showed that patients slept better and felt increased privacy and safety. Observations were also faster, saving staff time.
