Chronic Disease Support

Empowering technology for community and clinical settings

Using the latest digital technology, our health services help manage chronic disease, including COPD, Diabetes and heart failure. In community and clinical settings, our remote patient monitoring and data capture abilities help to provide efficient, high quality care, mitigate adverse events and maximise clinical capacity.

Our innovative solutions combine assistive technology, apps and software, clinical workflow consultancy and tele-assistance to support community health providers with short and medium-term monitoring after acute deterioration in an individual’s condition.

Connected services can deliver a number of benefits in supporting chronic disease:

  • Patient empowerment and self-care
  • Reduced hospital re-admission
  • Prevent avoidable admissions
  • Reduced total cost of care
