The COPD Team in Newark and Sherwood (Nottinghamshire) were one of the first teams to go live in the area with Flo in January 2013. The team developed their use of Flo to monitor patient's oxygen saturation levels with an additional question relating to sputum, cough and breathlessness as required. When the initial service evaluation was completed for 2013/14, the age range = (59 – 80) with average age 70 years old.

The evaluation demonstrated a 40% reduction in expected acute admissions based on previous trends due to the opportunity to intervene earlier upon signs of deterioration. The service evaluation available to download demonstrates other wide ranging benefits and positive patient feedback
