MyWay Digital Health


Competition 12 - General Practice of the Future

Clinical Need

10% of the world population has diabetes which can lead to blindness, heart attacks, strokes and amputations. These complications are entirely preventable through good self-management
and early medical intervention but cost £2.5 trillion pa globally. Better management of non-communicable diseases, person-centred care focusing on preventative strategies, and digital/ data driven solutions, strongly align with the NHS Long Term Plan.

The Innovation

An end-to-end, cost-saving, data-driven, digital solution for people with diabetes and healthcare teams.

MyWay Digital Health (MWDH)’s flagship digital product, MyWay Diabetes (MWD) (previously
MyDiabetesMyWay (MDMW)) integrates healthcare data - driving record access, personalised, automated advice, home monitoring support and education for people with diabetes.

MyWay Clinical (MWC) is a complementary clinician facing disease management system for individual and population management with tailored advice and risk prediction.

MWDH supports equity of access through accessibility best practice, delivery of content tailored to different cultures and languages, and easy-to-read materials. The team work with local organisations to support low digital/ health literacy needs, and datadriven risk tools help prioritisation of care for vulnerable populations.
