EmERGE mHealth Limited is a not-for-profit company that aims to provide secure, high-quality, clinically evaluated services to hospitals, clinics, and communities on a commercial, not-for-profit basis: supporting equal access to health services and health data for all.
Used in combination with a clinic-based system for communicating with app users and reviewing results, the EmERGE platform enables health service providers to implement a secure, digital health pathway. The pathway enables services to be delivered flexibly, either face-to-face or remotely, in response to need. Clinics save time and optimise capacity whilst ensuring patient care, quality and safety at a distance.
EmERGE PrEP App
The EmERGE PrEP app has been developed following a co-design process with community and clinicians at one of our sites. The established EmERGE platform has been adapted to support PrEP users to access their care via the clinic virtually as part of a digital health pathway.
The EmERGE project was initiated by Professor Martin Fisher and follows his vision of ensuring that health innovations are clinically-led and co-owned with patient communities; core values which are transferred through to the not-for-profit company.
The EmERGE project brought together world class HIV and sexual health clinicians, leading digital innovators and European-wide patient advocacy network the European AIDS Treatment Group to co-design a technology platform that offers a range of digital health services.
Funded by the H2020 framework, The EmERGE project aims to demonstrate the benefits to patients and possible cost effectiveness for health-care providers and purchasers by reducing face-to-face consultations based on prior work showing a high uptake rate and use of mHealth in HIV patient populations.
EmERGE mHealth Ltd is the vehicle that transforms the H2020 funded EmERGE project from a research project to a commercial reality.
