We’re aiming to improve care for people who have, or may develop, certain long term health conditions by anticipating their health needs before they happen.

By gathering new insights using pseudonymised (non-identifiable data) data and making use of telecare technology, we plan to help GP practices find the best ways to detect, manage and prevent long term ill health.

Initially, we’re focusing on type 2 diabetes and certain heart and lung diseases.
