The Digital Sleep Diary: The self-management and remote monitoring app
Our project proposes a pioneering approach to support self-management and clinical decision making in primary care, aligned to better utilisation of limited resources in secondary care. Building upon our proven technology used in another long term condition we would:
I. Create a downloaded app designed to take the young person on a journey that will either help resolve their sleep challenge, where this is linked to ‘life style’, or point to more challenging sleep disorders (and evidence this) where specialist intervention is required.
II. A user-interface co-designed with patients and users with the right levels of ‘nudge’ and ‘nurturing’ to achieve optimum interaction.
III. A clinical web portal accessed through any browser, on any computer, protected with password security. The portal holds the patient record and enables clinicians to have a graphical representation of their patients.
IV. An algorithm (hosted in the cloud and accessed through the secure clinical web portal) that undertakes all of the calculations and generates an indicative diagnosis.
