New app, ‘My Health Guide‘ for adults with learning disabilities
My Health Guide is an app for iPads and Android tablets, as well as a web service, that puts adults with learning disabilities at the centre of their health care. The app enables people who struggle to communicate to have a voice, and to be empowered about their health care.
It lets adults with learning disabilities capture what’s important for them and helps them manage their health care. Families and friends can keep in touch using the web interface, and healthcare professionals can stay on top of what’s happening in the lives of learning-disabled adults.
The project is undergoing a 6-month trial in 2016 with 200 people at Humber NHS Foundation Trust.
This short introductory video for My Health Guide app owners (and potential owners) will help them understand what My Health Guide is, why it’s useful, and how it can help them:
