Hospital uses wearable device to create new healthcare reality for people with epilepsy
Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust helped form the Epilepsy Care Alliance, which aims to change the way clinicians evaluate and treat people with epilepsy. Together with Graphnet Health, Shearwater Systems, the University of Kent, and Microsoft, Poole Hospital is developing and evaluating a solution using Microsoft Band and the Graphnet myCareCentric platform to engage patients and help doctors deliver more effective care. The project will help providers deliver timelier treatment at less cost and could create a new reality in epilepsy care.

With the data from a wearable device and innovative data visualizations in myCareCentric, we can get an overall picture of the patient, find patterns, and uncover opportunities to influence outcomes.

“We want to break down boundaries and challenge traditional ways of interacting with patients. That’s one way we can strike the balance between high-quality care and cost control.”
