NHS Partners with Tech Industry to Improve Patient Self-Management of Diabetes and Obesity

Country Correspondents: Aisha Gomez and Molly Fitzgerald

NHS England, Public Health England, and Diabetes UK have partnered with tech developers to tackle diabetes and obesity. More than 5,000 patients across England will test a range of digital products such as apps, devices, and wearable technology aimed at helping them manage their conditions. Over 12 months, patients will be able to access health coaches and online support groups, set personal goals, and monitor their progress through their devices. The pilot aims to provide digital support services similar to those offered through the face-to-face Healthier You program launched in 2016.
