eHealth Digital Media Ltd would like to say... sorry if you had any problems accessing PocketMedic on Thursday. Something strange caused a hiccup and thankfully it is resolved! Meanwhile...we are busy making some films about exercise and type 1 diabetes... if you are worried about playing in a school team or running a triathlon we are going to hear from some people who quite literally go for gold and have got their management off to a tee! We are doing some filming about understanding when your feet are at risk if you have diabetes and are in the edit with a film about manual lymphatic drainage for people living with lymphoedema. Not to mention making an ad about DKA for use in cinemas. It is all go... !

Wellbeing –
Moving On

Patients share their self-management techniques – ideal to prescribe to a patient waiting to see a counsellor.

Diabetes –
What can I eat?

Patients watching our content about diabetes said “Yes, but what can we EAT?!” so we made two films with the Hywel Dda Clinical Lead Diabetes Dietitian and her team in response

The link between health literacy and health outcomes is well established but often is interpreted too narrowly – we think – as simply being about giving patients information. If you want to motivate and empower patients you need to do more than that.

PocketMedic is our big idea and it uses technology to allow primary, secondary and community based clinicians to deliver graphically illustrated, personal film-based prescriptions that engage patients in their own health outcomes and promote positive, behavioural change.

We have evaluated the effectiveness of films films helping patients understand more about self-management of diabetes with Swansea University School of Medicine.  Initial data shows that patients who have watched the first series of films have improved clinical markers for blood glucose control (an average of 9mmol/mol improvement in HbA1c).  See NEWS for one of our press releases.

And we do more… we work with organisations to help them transform the thinking of clients and staff.  We help organisations explain what they do… we help share big and complex ideas and influence thinking and behaviour.
