At EmERGE mHealth Ltd we support equal access rights to health services and data for all, working as a not-for-profit company to provide secure, high quality, clinically evaluated services to clinics, hospitals and communities.
By working in combination with a clinic-based system, the EmERGE app enables health service providers to implement a secure, digital health pathway that allows users to communicate with their clinic as well as review their blood and swab results. Using this pathway, services can be delivered flexibly, either face-to-face or remotely as needed, ultimately saving clinics’ time and optimising capacity, all whilst ensuring patient care, quality and safety.
EmERGE PrEP App
The EmERGE PrEP app has been developed following a co-design process with communities and clinicians. The existing EmERGE platform has been adapted in order to support PrEP users, allowing them to virtually access their care via the clinic as part of the digital health pathway.
The EmERGE project was initiated by Professor Martin Fisher and follows his vision that that health innovations should be clinically led and co-owned with patient communities, core values that have been carried through to our not-for-profit company.
The EmERGE project brought together world class HIV and sexual health clinicians, leading digital innovators and the European-wide patient advocacy network – the European AIDS Treatment Group (EATG). This group worked in collaboration to co-design our 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.
