At home diagnostics: Revolutionising the patient pathway

The growing demand for diagnostic procedures, combined with limited clinical capacity and greater infection control measures, is proving increasingly challenging to meet.


Innovation in pathways and technologies, such as moving diagnostic capacity into the community, is helping to tackle this challenge and give citizens greater control and choice over their care. In the West Midlands, we are now going a stage further by trialling the self-administration of closed capsule endoscopy in the patient’s own home.


While new technology and connectivity solutions make this procedure possible, it is close working with patients: to better understand their concerns, how the process works in practice and their overall experience, that will determine the pilot’s success. 


With responsibility for working with NHS partners and producing an evidence base to inform future use, NHS Arden & GEM will share the latest trial plans and provide initial observations on patient reactions and perceptions regarding the use of remote diagnostics and Artificial Intelligence.

A session with Apira Ltd

Apira will be discussing how patient engagement and empowerment, and new models of care delivery have been incorporated into digital systems and services projects for their national, regional and local clients.

The team will also share insight from projects where they have helped to deploy patient portals, remote monitoring, virtual consultation and virtual ward technology, which are already helping to support the delivery of safer and more efficient care, and to improve patient experience and clinical outcomes.  

Alan and David will also be sharing their own personal experience of engaging with the NHS and managing their own long-term conditions through digital technology.
