Provides medical organisations with feedback on “the patient journey”
In 2012, in conjunction with University Hospital Southampton, we designed and developed MicroGuide. In 2013 this service was launched and within three years was being used in almost 50% of all UK Acute Hospital Trusts to publish medical guidelines to their clinicians.
Our objective is to build on this success and become a trusted advisor to medical organisations and help them take advantage of the emerging mobile (m-Health) technological revolution.
Mobile devices allow greater connectivity throughout the world. The world is going mobile, by 2020 there will be 6.1 billion smart phones in circulation and the M-health market will be worth $31 billion globally.
Mhealth has the ability to improve the overall healthcare system by improving efficiency, communication, costs, and quality of healthcare services.
