This network continues to bring together organisations and individuals with expertise and ambition in supporting better health and care (including self-care) for people with chronic disease in areas such as cardiovascular disease (atrial fibrillation, hypertension), kidney disease, respiratory disease (e.g. chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), type 2 diabetes, musculoskeletal ill-health, and those with multi-morbidities, including dementia.
Working in partnership with the WMAHSN Digital Health and Data Service, the Long Term Conditions Network builds on its successful work in developing Technology Enabled Care Services. These focus on the use of telehealth and telecare to improve individuals’ capacity to take more control over their health and wellbeing, encouraging better primary and secondary prevention as well as improved self management of conditions, and thereby reducing pressure on clinical services. The LTC Network supports engagement with STPs through data packs designed for each of these STP footprints in order to complement intelligence provided by RightCare.
