WINNER: University Hospital of North Midlands, Midlands Partnership FT, Health2Works, Simple Shared Health and Signum Health – Smart with Your Heart

Self-care, education and telemonitoring are cornerstones of long-term condition management, said the organisers. “Perversely, educational content stems from aims to change health service outcomes rather than prioritisation of patient need. Monitoring physiological parameters remotely removes patient experience from self-monitoring. Both diminish the patient voice.”

The project personalised patient care by:

Partnered byGRI

Telemonitoring patients’ self-assessed overall health, with interactive texts in language understandable to all; bespoke digital library content with enhanced content driven by patient request; and timely, responsive patient contact to facilitate healthcare options activated by appropriate alert texts.

“This combined approach reduced all cause readmissions by 50 per cent, reduced cost and improved patient experience.”
