Emergency Response

In the UK, it is estimated that 30% of emergency hospital admissions are unnecessary as patients could have been treated on-site or at home. The challenge faced is how paramedics can access the appropriate equipment and clinical support to be able to diagnose and treat on-site.

Managing Long Term Conditions

Long term conditions kill 41 million people each year, equivalent to 71% of all deaths globally. Approximately, 70% of the NHS budget is spent on managing long-term conditions, but NHS resources are under increasing pressure through population growth and an increase in the number of people with long-term conditions. This issue is not isolated to the NHS, it is a global challenge meaning that a fundamental shift in the way health care is delivered worldwide is needed.

Connectivity for healthcare

The Catapult is focusing predominantly on managing and preventing long-term conditions and how we can change the care pathways surrounding them to improve patient care. Looking at the full preventative agenda means looking beyond just the professional-to-patient relationship in the health estate, it means looking at people diagnosed and those not yet diagnosed and how they can be supported in all aspects of life. This inevitably means looking at remote healthcare solutions.
