Innovative healthcare platform recognised in prestigious list of top 100 worldwide digital health companies
The Journal of mHealth has announced its annual Global Digital Health 100, recognising the most innovative health technology companies from around the world.
Now in its sixth year, the annual Global Digital Health 100 is one of the healthcare technology industry’s foremost technology award programmes, celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship. It recognises and supports health technology companies that are demonstrating the greatest potential to change the way that healthcare is delivered.
Pioneering digital healthcare platform MyLiferaft has been recognised in the 2020 Global Digital Health 100 list.
Commenting on being included in this year’s prestigious list, Nicola Murgatroyd, Founder and CEO of MyLiferaft, said: “I am absolutely delighted and honoured that MyLiferaft has been recognised by The Journal of mHealth.
“We continue to drive healthcare technology forward to give greater control to the individual whether they are being cared for or are the carer, and at a time when we are about to launch the next generation of MyLiferaft, it reinforces the global need for us to embrace medical technology.”
Integrating health, care and well-being online, MyLiferaft supports the growing need for individuals, and their carers, to take more ownership of their care.
A sophisticated platform to store and connect health and well-being information, MyLiferaft cuts out the frustrating repetition and inconsistency that can exist across an individual’s care network.
Linking social services, NHS GP, hospitals, practitioners and family members as required, the platform is a straightforward and effective tool within the health technology sector.
The digital platform enables:
- Storage of health and care information, and the ability to control who sees it
- Creation of a hospital passport – information for hospital staff that isn’t all about illness
- Reminders to be set up about appointments and assessments
- Sharing of care information with family members and care professionals
Providing valuable insight on emerging technology trends from across the healthcare sector, the Global Digital Health 100 has identified early-stage solution providers that have gone on to become some of the world’s most successful health technology companies, including: Babylon Health, SilverCloud Health, One Medical, and Butterfly Network.
