BOC Healthcare Going Digital With myCOPD
BOC Healthcare has teamed up with my mhealth to begin delivering myCOPD within their NHS community-based pulmonary rehabilitation services. This working relationship unlocks the ability of BOC Healthcare to reach more patients through digital self-management and pulmonary rehabilitation, moving into the new hybrid delivery of care, face-to-face and digital services.
myCOPD is a complete self-management solution that enables patients to learn more about their condition, receive expert education, access a home-based pulmonary rehabilitation option, learn how to take their medication correctly and more, any time, any place, any device. Ian Thompson, Strategic Director commented “It is great news to announce this working relationship with BOC Healthcare. Delivering these new models of care, with conventional providers enables patients to receive high-quality healthcare at a time that suits them. Ian added ‘this enables the delivery of rehabilitation at scale, for reduced cost, and at the same time expanding the reach of pulmonary rehabilitation to all patients with COPD.”
BOC Healthcare commented “As a provider of NHS Pulmonary Rehabilitation services across 10 CCGs, we see every day the outcomes possible for people attending our group-based programmes, however, not all patients are able to attend them. myCOPD gives us an option, with structured clinical support, to offer those patients, meaning that they don’t miss out on the health benefits which a structured pulmonary rehabilitation and self-management programme can deliver. It importantly gives us a tool to offer people completing group-based programmes to help them maintain their achievements from pulmonary rehabilitation.”
myCOPD is one of the innovations available on NHS England’s Innovation and Technology Tariff (ITT). To find out more about the innovations on the ITT and how the SW AHSN can help you access these click here.
