My Health Tools: An digital self-care platform for people with long term conditions

Posted on Monday, August 21st, 2017

My Health Tools enables users to self-assess, self-manage and self-monitor their long-term condition (LTC). It has been expressly designed by public health professionals, GPs, LTC specialists and patients in partnership with innovative technical developers to support people with long-term conditions to be self-sufficient and resourceful to confidently manage their needs and reduce dependency on the care system.

Underpinned by a biopsychosocial model in evaluating and identifying health functioning and supporting positive behavioural change, My Health Tools (MHT) provides valuable data in understanding people’s ability and confidence to self-manage to support local commissioning priorities. The web-based, mobile-responsive solution gives people access to a range of tools, resources and knowledge to assist them 24/7 to develop self-care skills and access peer support through both offline and online means.

The benefits delivered by MHT are manifold, stemming from giving patients more information on which to make decisions, giving them greater understanding of other influences affecting their lives and enabling them to take control of their health and wellbeing. MHT makes significant changes to the way healthcare is delivered; improving working practices, reducing duplication, giving transparency, sharing best practice, data and more. Resulting in improved health outcomes, reduced reliance on medication, increased patient confidence to live with their LTC, financial savings and a more holistic, person-centred healthcare delivery model.

My Health Tools –  a collaborative publicly owned technology that supports different patient groups – is now available for other organisations to deploy.
