Help the WEAHSN create its first challenge to industry on using mHealth for self management in diabetes

Posted in: HealthResSW

The West of England Academic Health Science Network (WEAHSN) is launching its mHealth self-management challenge with the first focus being diabetes.

We need your help to describe challenges you'd like solved to help people with diabetes better manage their condition and we invite you to attend a workshop at the Engine Shed, Temple Meads, Bristol on the afternoon of Monday 12th May.

mHealth covers medical and public health practice supported by mobile devices, such as mobile phones, patient monitoring systems, personal digital assistants (PDAs), tablet computers and other wireless devices.

The theme for this call was agreed at WEAHSN’s last Board meeting which is attended by the Chief Executives of our member organisations. I’ve had discussions with some of you on the challenges you face around diabetes and how solutions may fit in with wider pieces of work. I’d like to invite you to join us to discuss and capture the key themes you’d like to address in this challenge.

These will then be incorporated into a national call to industry for solutions to these challenges. We will be looking for solutions that are already on the market rather than in development and our publicity will focus on local Small & Medium Sized Enterprises. Funding will be available to our members for evaluating a number of short-listed solutions.
