People are living longer but not necessarily in good health. 58% of adults
aged over 60 have one or more chronic or long-term condition (LTC). Worryingly there’s an increase increase to 14% in adults under 40.
Treating people with LTCs consumes £7 of every £10 in healthcare budgets. That’s a pretty consistent proportion across the world.
So how about helping people to self-care which can reduce their need to visit hard-pressed clinical staff? We can do this using technology. Technology like beetroot.
Patients benefit from enhanced self-management by combining visibility of
their health data with personalised coaching from a rich knowledge base.
Healthcare providers benefit from remote monitoring and improvingvulnerable patients’ wellbeing through a sophisticated but simple-to-use management interface in a cost-effective way.
beetroot is brought to you by THERAPYAUDIT Limited, which has many years’ experience in providing innovative software solutions to over 35 NHS and Public Health clients in England. Our monitoring service has been collecting and analysing data for health professionals for years so we know a thing or two about making patient monitoring in the community work.
Now it’s time to extend these solutions to patients. So that they can take steps to improve their own health and management of chronic conditions. Using state-of-the-art technology.
There are many medical monitoring apps on the market. But few, if any, provide a combination of personalised monitoring and coaching with the reassurance of a tried and tested ‘backend’. That’s where beetroot is different. We’re investing heavily in artificial intelligence and psychology-based design to individually personalise our users’ experience. And we also provide healthcare professionals with the reassurance that they can efficiently monitor their patients.
