Falls Prevention Service

Available on G-Cloud 10

The Falls Prevention Service allows patients to securely share actively and passively gathered movement and mobility data, from connected hardware, sensors, apps and wearables. The data can be used by health and social care professionals to pro-actively initiate community interventions to reduce admissions to acute care.

How it works

  1. Patient Onboarding

    Patients at risk of falls will be onboarded to the service by health and care professionals. Baseline clinical data will be established. Wearables and connected hardware will be supplied.

  2. Data Gathering

    Patients actively and passively gather health. movement and mobility data from the wearables and connected hardware supplied during onboarding. The data is automatically and securely shared with the Lenus Digital Health and Care Platform.

  3. Clinical Dashboard

    Patient data will become available in the clinical dashboard, providing health and care professionals with a dedicated interface that displays and aggregates health, movement and mobility data across all onboarded patients.

  4. Machine Learning

    Data rules help trained health and care professionals to identify patterns and insights that will trigger personalised interventions or escalation.

  5. Providing Interventions

    Trained algorithms will help to determine if a risk of a fall is heightened. This will guide if proactive health or social care interventions are required.

  6. EHR Integration and Ongoing Communication

    Through the Lenus Digital Health and Care Platform, health and care professionals can access the patient’s Electronic Health Record (EHR) and augment it with data from the Falls Prevention service. Messages can be sent to patients (or their designated care team) via the Lenus Digital Health and Care Platform. Diagnostics can also be created to gather qualitative insights from patients too.

The Opportunity

Almost 300,000 people every year in the UK end up in Accident and Emergency Departments after a fall, with the costs over £1.5 billion being borne by the NHS for emergency care.

Falls can be prevented by monitoring health, movement and mobility data and responding to patients at heightened risk, through community interventions.

Pro-active community interventions reduce admissions to acute care and also afford older patients improved quality of life.
