Examining the hybrid model of delivering care for long-term conditions

This content relates to the following topics:

Digital solutions have already transformed how health services are offered, accessed and used, and will continue to do so in the years to come. With the adoption of new technologies, new ways of working are emerging that seek to combine the best of digital approaches with the benefits of face-to-face contact.

In this online event, our panel of experts explored how wearables have created better health outcomes for people living with long-term conditions, such as diabetes. They looked to the future and discussed how we can make sure that digital approaches are prioritised in the long term to continue empowering patients and supporting clinicians to create patient-centred care, leading to improved health outcomes. They also explored the lessons from diabetes and wearables that offer wider learning across the NHS on harnessing the benefits of technology for a digital future.
