Our care apps set out to use leading technology to help redesign care pathways, transform the delivery of care and improve the quality of life for patients with or at risk of long-term, complex or life-limiting conditions. This is achieved at the same time as delivering efficiency and cost-saving opportunities for care providers.
The base building block is the CareCentric shared record. This brings together information from GPs, social care providers, acute, mental health and community trusts into a single, unified record and provides care planning support.
It is this integrated record that enables new partnerships such as Integrated Care Organisations (ICOs), Multi-speciality Community Providers (MCPs) and Primary Acute Care Systems (PACS) to work in tandem, as outlined in the NHS Five Year Forward View.
Patients are able to access, view and contribute to their records and services through the myCareCentric Personal Health Record.
The myCareCentric range of condition-specific mobile apps enable patients and other service users to contribute information in a range of innovative ways including;
- Wearable technologies automatically gathering personal data such as sleep patterns, exercise, heart rate and temperature.
- 250+ telehealth monitoring devices (e.g. blood pressure cuffs)
- Other health and lifestyle apps
- Customised condition/problem specific assessments and forms, symptom diary, questionnaires, mood assessments, dietary information and medication compliance.
These are combined with standard shared care record data such as test results and visit outcomes so patients can be monitored and managed remotely. Teams are alerted when conditions change and care plans can be set or amended accordingly.
