    Auckland's Waitemata DHB's piloting at-home ECG monitors for patients needing long-term care

    Auckland's Waitemata DHB's piloting at-home ECG monitors for patients needing long-term care


    The Well Foundation, which supports the DHB, has enough funding to see the pilot go ahead.

    Foundation chief executive Tim Edmonds says it's working with the DHB to clarify what patients needs are at home, as hospitals move to prepare for Covid-19 patients.

    He says patients are trained to use the monitors and send data back to health staff.

    Edmonds says other DHBs are seeing how it works to see how it could inform their pandemic responses too.
