LumiraDx Care Solutions and My mHealth partner to support digital self-care

LumiraDx Care Solutions and My mHealth have partnered to offer digital self-care to millions of patients with long-term conditions.

The initiative will provide an integrated patient and clinician platform, enabling self-care for patients on anticoagulation therapy in addition to those living with COPD, asthma, diabetes and heart disease through a range of integrated, digital care programmes.

In England alone, more than 15 million people live with at least one long-term condition. Many will also have co-morbidities which need to be managed simultaneously. The shared vision is to give as many patients as possible the knowledge, skills and confidence to take control of their condition, whilst reducing avoidable costs through digital transformation and education.

Dr Mark Sullivan, Medical Director, LumiraDx  “With the NHS under relentless and increasing pressure there has never been a greater need to improve the way that we support people with long-term conditions. Supported self-care offers a way forward – improving outcomes, helping people become more involved with their own care and reducing demands on the Health Service. That’s why we are so excited to collaborate with My mHealth and combine our technologies and expertise. Education and
connectivity is key to ensuring patients can self-care and we have found a real synergy between our teams for providing this in our apps and care programmes.’’

Simon Bourne, CEO, My mHealth adds “This is a pivotal time for health technology and the focus now is on improving patients’ lives and reducing the burden on the NHS. By partnering with LumiraDx Care Solutions we’re aiming to change healthcare forever, delivering this integrated technology to as many people as possible and enabling them to become experts in their condition.”
