Living With, the long-term condition management platform and early warning system, has been selected by DigitalHealth.London to participate in the second Accelerator programme cohort.

“We’re thrilled that our Living With platform has been selected as one of the leading high potential health tech innovators in the UK. It’s an honour to participate and work alongside some really fantastic people who are trying to make innovation and digital care accessible through the NHS”, Living With co-founder Chris Robson commented.

Living With helps clinicians monitor real-time adherence and disease activity to detect early warning signs of condition deterioration and address the symptoms with timely interventions. Living With also helps clinicians optimise resource to focus on the patients most in need of help.

The DigitalHealth.London Accelerator is the first major programme of DigitalHealth.London. The programme is for digital health businesses that would benefit from better engagement with the NHS and the wider health sector, in order to refine and develop products and services that meet the needs of the system.

DigitalHealth.London was launched in 2016, following a recommendation by Lord Darzi and the London Health Commission. The programme benefits from a collaboration between the three London Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs): the Health Innovation Network (HIN), Imperial College Health Partners, UCLPartners, plus MedCity, CW+, the Mayor of London and NHS England. It is supported by Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity and is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Initially focused on women’s health and auto-immune conditions, Living With’s first two products are Living With Pelvic Health and Living With Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Living With Pelvic Health will launch at the annual Pelvic, Obstetric and Gynaecological Physiotherapy (POGP) conference 6 October 2017 in Southampton.
