Tuesday August 13th, 2019

The funding will allow Advanced Digital Innovation (UK) Limited (ADI) to boost uptake of its flagship product, MyPathway. The system, which is already in use by a number of NHS trusts, seamlessly connects patients to their healthcare provider through a web browser or a mobile app.

MyPathway removes the need for appointment letters and calls and allows patients to negotiate care plans with clinicians. It provides digital triage, supports personalised rehabilitation programmes and allows clinicians to monitor patients’ progress and access patient-reported data and feedback.

ADI has been working with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust for over two years, with North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust for over a year and has recently won a further contract with NHS North East Essex CCG. The company has also carried out two successful clinical trials with the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona. It is now looking to sign up other trusts across the UK. The investment will allow the company to build its sales and marketing team and further develop its product.

ADI, which is based in Saltaire, was formed in 2012, initially operating as a consultancy delivering digital change projects to healthcare providers, and later developing its own software products. The CEO John Eaglesham has been with the company since inception and has overseen its transition and subsequent growth.

John Eaglesham, CEO, said:

“At ADI, we are committed to bringing the digital revolution to the NHS and its patients. MyPathway provides both sides with the control and choice that we take for granted in other services. The NHS is undergoing a digital transformation and MyPathway is uniquely positioned to deliver this change in a cost-effective manner.”
