Innovation – AI Health and Social Care Solutions.
The NHS and social care services have both been hit by funding cuts and workforce shortages amid huge pressure from an ageing population that is predicted to increase by 25% by 2036. All this pressure places unsustainable demands on existing health and wellbeing services.
If people’s care needs are not addressed early, a decline in their health often follows and this leads to costly interventions. Importantly, posthospital care is mostly met by local authorities and is typically three times more intensive, compounding the problem and hindering long term recovery and independence.

- Digital transformation in healthcare – We work with a number of health providers delivering digital transformation programmes in healthcare, addressing the silos of technology, data, and people.
- Artificial intelligence – We can offer AI solutions that provide customers with an effective way to manage their increased workload more efficiently, stop a patient’s preventable decline and develop optimal support plans.
- Working with stakeholders – The key to ensuring the success of our partnership programmes is to involve a range of stakeholders including surgeons, midwives, directors of adult social care and clinicians. This inclusivity ensures all voices are heard on behalf of NHS patients and social care service providers and users.
How we do things
AI and MySense
Our partnership with AI platform MySense helps health and social care professionals to learn an individual’s behavioural patterns, providing them with information to quickly identify declining health or immediate care needs. We do this by using data from 10 fixed passive sensors placed around a users’ home and on a wearable device. App alerts and data sets are shown via the dashboard so family, friends and healthcare professionals can monitor and manage care needs before they escalate.
The platform is based on a powerful algorithm that builds a personalised model for each patient and service user’s wellbeing, using new and old data. It constantly evaluates patterns and anomalies around the five aspects of mental and physical wellbeing – independence, alignment, nutrition, mobility and hydration.
If MySense finds a pattern of decline it will automatically update the monitoring dashboard and send an alert to an assigned responder. The insights are shared with family friends, caregivers and professionals.
Improve diagnostics and home care – AI’s ability to capture and categorise data gives health and social care providers the ability to monitor the health of patients and service users, improving diagnostic and post hospital outcomes.
Cost savings – Our AI solution can lead to significant cost savings, particularly for post hospital home care. At the same time this improves a service user’s health and social care outcomes.
Predictive care – With AI, the hundreds of millions of data points will be able to accurately predict trends across conditions. This will lead to more successful diagnoses of conditions often before they are presented.
Digital health transformation – Our healthcare partnerships help showcase digital health transformation, providing customers with technology solutions to meet patient support needs.
Digital healthcare showcase – We have partnered with University Hospitals North Midlands to set up a bespoke digital enablement centre inside the hospital. This is a digital health facility where we can showcase the latest innovations in our developing healthcare technology portfolio ahead of an eventual product roll out.
Artificial intelligence – We can offer AI solutions that provide customers with an effective way to manage their patients and service users more efficiently and stop preventable decline.
Stakeholder engagement – Our stakeholder engagement programmes ensure all voices are heard on behalf of NHS patients and social care service users.
