Cornish company, LumiraDx, to showcase ground-breaking health app at NHS Innovation Expo
Camborne-based LumiraDx Care Solutions will be exhibiting at this year’s NHS Health and Care Innovation Expo 17 on 11 and 12 September in Manchester. The NHS Expo is one of the largest events in the UK dedicated to technology and innovation in health and social care and will attract over 5,000 delegates across two days.
LumiraDx Care Solutions, part of the LumiraDx group, design therapy and condition-specific digital care solutions for patients and clinicians. They will attend the Expo to present engage, their innovative patient-facing self-care app, which has been designed and developed in Cornwall and is now in use across the UK. This event provides a fantastic opportunity to highlight ground-breaking technology to key opinion leaders, directors, care leaders and innovators alike at a national level.
‘’We are really proud of the development of the app – from early stages, when our Discovery Team designed and carried out usability testing with patients and clinicians, through to creation by our in-house team of skilled software developers. The app, and the technology behind it, has the potential to change patient’s lives and free up clinician time.’’ Michael Barritt, Managing Director, LumiraDx Care Solutions
engage is excitingly different to other healthcare apps because as well as recording health data input by the patient, it also keeps individuals digitally connected to their care team and includes interactive education to ensure patients have the knowledge, skills and confidence to feel more in control of their care. engage combines the best technology, education and clinical expertise to deliver a series of safe, self-care programmes – such as self-testing for anticoagulation therapy with seamless connectivity to the patient record.
