BREAKING NEWS: my mhealth and Kent and Medway ICB extend their successful 3 year partnership to support long term condition management.
Following the successful delivery of myDiabetes across Kent and Medway, which has seen over 12,000 individuals provided with access to support their ongoing self-management, my mhealth and Kent and Medway ICB have agreed on a new partnership.
This collaboration extends access to the my mhealth platform to support patients living with COPD, heart disease, and asthma, while also maintaining its support for individuals living with diabetes.
The myCOPD, myAsthma, myDiabetes and myHeart apps all form part of the my mhealth digital hub, a digital therapeutic platform that provides patients with tailored, evidence-based digital interventions which improve health outcomes and reduce health service dependence. The digital hub features range from education, condition-specific intervention to rehabilitation and much more.
The NHS Long Term Plan prioritises the establishment of personalised care as the norm, and promoting supported self-management is an integral part of this dedication. My mhealth’s digital hub platform is designed to make the ambitions of the Long Term Plan a reality.
Through the clinical dashboards, the my mhealth platform will enable clinical teams to deliver supported self-management, track an individual patient’s response to treatment, and assess the needs of the patients and services at a population scale. These insights will, in turn, help Kent & Medway to further optimise their service delivery and prioritise care.
Head of Customer Success for my mhealth, Jane Stokes comments:
“We are delighted to witness the ongoing success of myDiabetes in Kent & Medway. By extending provision to patients living with asthma, COPD and cardiovascular disease, we are creating a great opportunity to help services to empower patients in their self-management, to improve their condition control and optimise their health care utilisation. We are proud to be a part of Kent’s digital transformation journey”.
Ian Butcher, Senior Programme Manager & Pride Network Co-Chair Cardiovascular, Network NHS Kent & Medway adds:
“All of us at Kent & Medway ICB have been delighted to witness the positive adoption of the myDiabetes self-management platform. As myDiabetes continues to prove a real success to our patients, our digital transformation journey naturally led us to collaborate as an ICB and expand these benefits to individuals dealing with Heart Disease, Asthma, and COPD. With this expansion we strive to empower an increasing number of patients throughout our region, fostering their confidence and enhancing their sense of control when it comes to their management of their long-term condition".
