Philips supports launch of new Cheshire telehealth programme

14th August 2015

Philips has helped Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and NHS West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group to launch an innovative telehealth programme.

The new Supported Self Care Champion Project is Cheshire's first at-scale telehealth programme and aims to improve patient self-management among people with multiple long-term health conditions and complex needs.

A total of 960 individuals will be provided with a customised telehealth programme that addresses three levels of need: high, medium and low. The initial project will last for one year, with the aim of increasing user confidence to safely manage their health and retain at-home independence.

By offering a personalised, technology-enabled supported self-care service, the partners will seek to improve patient experiences and simultaneously relieve pressures on the local health system.

Alan Davies from Philips said: "We want to improve health outcomes for people living locally with long-term conditions, while ensuring we make the best use of valuable healthcare resources."

This comes after the firm launched a new on-demand ultrasound service in the UK earlier this summer, to help healthcare providers offer high-quality services for a reduced cost.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801797692-ADNFCR
