CM2000 working in conjunction with Edinburgh Napier University

CM2000’s monitoring technology already gathers real-time data on care visits and patient outcomes but we wanted to gather additional information on patients’ conditions, in line with NHS and Local Council requirements, developing predictive techniques to help identify those at risk.

CM2000 are funding an innovative project with Edinburgh Napier University (ENU) to focus on the detection of frailty using data from a range of sources. This involves state-of-the art predictive tools. Adrian Smales, a Research Fellow at ENU said “We have a long-term vision of using data to detect the early signs of illness, and apply new methods that should lead to improved care and better outcomes for all.”

From theory to practice
A pilot is underway in East Dunbarton designed to bring together a variety of CM2000’s technology solutions to gain insight into the area of frailty, primarily that of Service Users that fall regularly.

During three different seasons, three different sets of 15 Service Users, representing a wide spectrum of socio-economic groups will use:
  • CM2000’s Outcomes & Wellbeing Platform to capture assessment data at the start and end of the reablement period
  • CM2000’s Mobile Workforce Platform to dynamically push questions to Care Workers in order to ascertain real time feedback on the Service User’s condition
  • CM2000’s Outcomes Platform and Wellbeing Portal to capture and feed in qualitative responses
  • Wearable wrist devices to capture various health related factors such a heart rate  
  • Body mass scales and strength grip indicators in order to capture and feed this data into the analytical algorithms 
  • CM2000’s quantitative real-time monitoring information to derive frequency and duration of visits.
CM2000’s Director of Scotland, Brian Brown, has been at the forefront of all these developments and is very excited about the future potential: “There is an enormous amount of data available which is currently under-utilised. This holds the key to understanding at what point intervention is required. We are excited to be working with ENU and a number of our customers on this ground-breaking work.”
