After fundamental changes in several sectors and industries, digital transformation now means rapid changes in healthcare. Digital treatments, automated patient education, big data analysis or sensor-supported patient monitoring are all part of the change.
Except for a few cases, most of the changes seem to be technology-led, while it would be crucial to involve medical professionals, patients and health service provider organisations to fully benefit from what technology can offer.
We are tech companies, working closely with industry, health providers, researchers, doctors and other health specialists to develop solutions which provide real support and assistance both for patients and medical pros. We need an active discussion with users and specialists to have a real understanding about needs and elements where we can add value – from reducing time of patient education and prevention or offering fine-tuned, personalised diet suggestions for those with a serious chronic condition to reliable solutions to fight hospital superbugs or super-fast and super-reliable CT segmentation.
As an industry professional, you might already be aware what digital technologies can offer in healthcare and would be open for a discussion with tech professionals how blockchain, mobile technologies, image and data analysis or digital patient assistance/digital treatments can improve the efficiency of medical diagnoses and treatment.
Come and join our workshop at the prestigious location of the Hungarian Embassy in central London on 17 October 2019 to discuss various aspects of digital health technologies to support UK and European healthcare and patient safety together.

Attila had a serious form of kidney failure, and he had to have a kidney transplant one year ago.
He is aware that he received a „second chance” from life, and wanted to live a health-focused life, which included sport (spinning, gym exercises and other forms of regular sports activities) as well as a continuous monitoring of his health data and body weight.
However, he struggled to lose a few extra kilos for life, and it seemed sport was not enough to achieve his ideal body weight. He started using ALSAD to have a more balanced, well-planned diet considering all aspects such as nutrients, the „ideal” balance of fat/carb/proteins, as advised by professional dietitians. As ALSAD considers and calculates all this data when the menu is planned, Attila was able to follow and control his eating habits easier and more precisely.
At the end of the test period, Attila has achieved body weight near his „ideal” weight (after losing about 7 kilograms) without struggling with menu plans or feeling this has required too much effort and time from him. He received a tablet from ALSAD team to view and track his progress easily, and – if he wants – to share measurable results.
Bernadett has a diagnosed Type 2 diabetes. She is also overweight.
With ALSAD, Bernadett has successfully configured her diet objectives, then, using the sample menu designed by dietitians, managed to configure her personal diet settings. She has built her personal profile to get personalised content recommendation, and read lots of information related to her health status.
She also tested the „Automatic menu generation” feature successfully to get support for meal planning. She also used the recipe creation function, using ingredients provided by the application database.
By sharing data logged in ALSAD, a more direct and more efficient communication routine was established with her doctor.
Emese lives with chronic kidney failure and needs regular dialysis to maintain her condition.
She was also diagnosed with obesity and needs to control her blood pressure. Therefore, key goals were to track and monitor her blood pressure (ALSAD offers this function and Emese uses it every day), get additional information about her condition and recommendations about physical activities. Emese was watching several videos recommended by ALSAD about suggested exercises.
Another key objective was to manage her diet to be compliant with specific requirements related to regular dialysis treatment. She used some model menus which then she adjusted to her personal needs, then tracked her meals to see whether they are compliant with dietary requirements, especially about mineral limits set by her doctors.
Using ALSAD requires very little time in her daily routine, on the other hand, the application provides lots of information for her clinicians.
Emma was diagnosed as a high risk patient for future diabetes, already having high blood pressure while already being seriously overweight. Her primary goal was to lose weight and set up a dietary regime to achieve and maintain better BMI.
ALSAD helped Emma to get personalised information about her status, while the application was also a powerful tool to set adequate dietary needs and goals, then start regular menu planning and manage her nutrition goals by tracking hear meals on a regular basis, consuming food which was both enjoyable and compliant to her dietary needs.
Emma also added some of her own recipes and ingredients required to cook these recipes.
Physical activity is also an important element of a healthier lifestyle, and Emma now can adequately track her exercises and measured health data.
Videos in ALSAD which were compiled by physiotherapist also provide relevant support for Emma to configure a regular daily exercise routine.
