Currently on the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator programme Vinehealth are an innovative start-up who aim to improve the quality of life and health outcomes of people living with cancer using behavioural science. Their flagship iOS app is now available on the Apple App Store.
Rayna Patel, CEO and Co-founder of Vinehealth said “This is a fantastic achievement for Vinehealth, following a year of research with cancer patients to understand the key day-to-day difficulties of managing complex cancer treatment. We couldn’t be more proud of the app we’ve released and so far user feedback has been very positive. As survival from cancer thankfully rises, we believe that quality of life whilst living with cancer is of utmost importance. Facilitating communication between patients and clinicians through patient-reported data is crucial in achieving this.
“We’re incredibly grateful for DigitalHealth.London’s help in supporting us to work with NHS and academic organisations and integrating the app into routine oncology services.”
Vinehealth is working with NHS and charity partners to develop and roll out the app to patients as part of routine oncology care. The launch of the app on the Apple App Store enables them to now reach an even greater group of patients and gather insights from a wide range of demographics. in order to develop and iterate the platform to suit patient needs and improve the patient experience. The Google Play (Android) version will follow in the coming weeks.
Users are able to better track, manage, and understand their cancer care – something Vinehealth’s research found to be a significant pain point while going through treatment. Users are nudged to regularly track their symptoms, medication, appointments and more on a daily basis. Providing them with relevant content, and reminders to better adhere to their medication, and flag symptoms over time. It’s estimated that 70 percent of medication is taken incorrectly, so even a slight improvement can have significant impact.
Sara Nelson, Programme Director for the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator programme said: “This app being available for anyone to download from the Apple App Store is a really positive step for Vinehealth. This opens up more opportunities for people living with cancer to self-mange and learn more about their condition and treatment. We are pleased to be supporting Vinehealth as they continue to develop and grow to be able to help more patients.”
