Are we doing any good in healthcare? We don’t actually know

In June, Rupert and Nasrin spoke at the second SP+EE Mobile Health meetup on the topic of health outcomes. They shared their thoughts on incentivising health outcomes, what that means in practice, and how outcomes based approaches can provide scope for digital healthcare and technological innovation.

Rupert reminded the group that in the current system, we often don’t know if the treatment and services we offer patients are doing any good. Only by measuring outcomes, not outputs, can we start to build this knowledge.

A new vision for healthcare at digital health live

Digital Health Live “is about thinking big, thinking holistically and thinking differently”. OBH were at the Dubai World Trade Centre in May this year to take part in this major conference, which brings together like-minded people, all passionate about harnessing the power of digital to improve health outcomes across the world.

Rupert spoke about how funding for healthcare fits in to a world where we use digital technology to optimise patient outcomes, and gave an overview of the different reimbursement models that can enable these rapid advances.

New OBH project to measuring diabetes outcomes with mobile phone sensor data

In March 2015, we were very excited to secure a match funded grant for a £100,000 project from Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency, to innovate the way health outcomes are measured in diabetes.

Knowledge about specific behaviours, lifestyles and environments is known to reveal insights about how an individual’s condition is most likely to progress and impact on their health outcomes. Through this work, we are creating a new technology to make acquiring this knowledge as easy as carrying your phone in your pocket.

The project is the first to record and correlate quality of life surveys and data from mobile phone sensors harnessing innovative machine learning technology, and we hope it will help healthcare to move beyond the current system of measuring and paying based on activity and processes of care, to understanding the actual impact of their services, interventions and treatments on the patient’s life.

Rupert Dunbar-Rees presented at EHI Live 2014 on ‘Using Data for Better Patient Outcomes’

Amid the furore surrounding patient identifiable data, Rupert and Mike Smith (CTO, MedeAnalytics) demonstrated how 21st century privacy enhancing technology can be used to allow data from the whole health economy to be linked at the patient level, enabling rich outcome measures for better patient care.
