my mhealth has been awarded a contract by NHS Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to provide its digital health apps to patients suffering with Diabetes, COPD and heart disease.
Working with NHS providers over the next 12 months, my mhealth will introduce the apps, myDiabetes, myHeart and myCOPD to at least 1000 patients. In collaboration, they will explore new ways of delivering care to patients at a time and place that suits them and that fully integrates with current NHS health services.
The applications can be used on almost any device that connects to the internet and have been tried and tested in patient populations in clinical trials.
my mhealth’s CEO Simon Bourne, commented:“The internet is used by many patients as part of their everyday routine. This is an exciting opportunity, for a company based in Dorset to enhance current services. Patients using these applications are educated to self-manage, adapt their lifestyle and manage their medication through a simple, easy to use interface.
“These apps will support current clinical services to deliver enhanced quality care at a scale that could never be achieved without a massive workforce expansion.”
Nichola Arathoon, Principal Programme Lead at Dorset CCG said: “The provision of self-management digital apps for people with diabetes, heart disease and COPD has been the missing link in providing a truly joined up service for patients, and we look forward to studying the outcomes of these interventions over the coming year.”
