  • NHS England has announced the five centres that have been awarded the status of Innovation Test Beds in which new approaches to healthcare provision will be assessed and adopted and two centres for the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) in healthcare.  Aseptika is pleased to announce that it is one of the innovators partnering with the Test Bed programme in Sheffield for the trial and integration of its Activ8rlives solution for patients with respiratory disease into the new pathways of care. Test Beds are a new collaborations between the NHS and innovators like Aseptika, which aim to harness technology to address some of the most complex and challenging issues facing patients and the health service.   Successful innovations will then be available for other parts of the NHS to adopt and adapt to the particular needs of their local populations. The ‘Perfect Patient Pathway’, as the Sheffield City region Test Bed will be known, aims to create the ‘perfect patient pathway’ to bring substantial benefits for patients suffering from long term health conditions, such as diabetes, mental health problems, respiratory diseases, hypertension and other chronic conditions.    Ends     About Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust  View the Media Release about Sheffield’s Perfect Patient Pathway test bed by following this link.   About Aseptika Limited (Activ8rlives):  Aseptika Limited is a healthcare company developing and marketing an integrated suite of self-monitoring devices and services under the Activ8rlives brand. We are developing integrated systems which can be used by consumers and their healthcare service providers to better self-manage long-term health conditions (LTHC) through self-monitoring. The Company’s goal is to provide everyone with tools (and the understanding of how to apply them) so that most of us can keep healthy and well for most of the time. Self-management through self-monitoring is the motivation driving what we do. Activ8rlives is unusual in that we are device agnostic, incorporating sensors and monitors ranging from consumer accessories to in vitro diagnostics (IVDs) with a focus on respiratory disease. All data is held together and can be cross analysed in the Cloud to provide forecasts and learning for the user and clinician. The Company gained a patent in 2013 protecting the invention of a test for biomarkers of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) in the sputum of patients, which can be used to detect the on-set of an exacerbation and profile the efficacy of antibiotic treatment for each patient. Aseptika won first place in a competition earlier in 2014 to reward the most “Promising eHealth EU SME”eHealth solution 2014developed by an early-stage European SME. The 2014 Competition was organized by TICBioMed and had the endorsement of the Health and Wellbeing Unit of DG CONNECT of the European Commission.

  • The Global Digital Health 100 List for 2015 was announced today in the Journal of mHealth and Aseptika Limited (Activ8rlives) has been named in the list of 100 companies for the second year in a row. The Global Digital Health 100 represents 6 months of analysis by the editorial and advisory team at The Journal of mHealth, who consider the offerings and innovations from companies across the digital health ecosystem, prior to selecting the final 100. In compiling this year’s 100 companies list are achieved by a combination of nominations and industry research to identify the most innovative and effective global companies operating in the mobile, digital and connected healthcare industries. The criteria for selection for inclusion on the 100 list includes: disruptive impact; proof of concept; technology innovation; social value; effectiveness; execution of strategy; and industry integration. Organisers of the Global Digital Health 100 List for 2015 commented about the companies selected for the 100 List: “The diversity of this year’s list stands out straight away. With innovations targeting just about every corner of healthcare the honouree companies offer technologies across a range of categories including, clinical solutions, wearable technologies, healthcare applications, medical devices, and data analytics. These are all solutions and services that are transforming, or have the potential to transform, and disrupt the way in which healthcare is delivered. Reflecting the growing prominence of mobile, digital and connected solutions in the healthcare sector, the Global Digital Health 100 acknowledges the significant work being carried out by organisations from around the globe. This year’s list similarly recognises an industry that is showing the signs of early maturity. As we progress from what some would describe as digital health 1.0 to digital health 2.0, 3.0 and beyond, then we can expect the role that these organisations play in everyday healthcare delivery to become greater and more widespread.” Kevin A Auton, managing director of Aseptika Limited commented on the award by saying: “This award tops off an extremely busy and pivotal year for the company and also corresponds with our first NHS England contract, reflecting the adoption of new care models in line with Simon Steven’s Five Year Forward View. It’s an honour and unexpected early Christmas present to our small and dedicated team, which we greatly appreciate in helping us to bring self-care to consumers and healthcare providers alike.”   
  • Season's greetings from all the Team at Activ8rlives. Wishing you a healthy and active year ahead for you and your family.
  • Consider this new thinking on the causes of cancer: “Up to nine in ten common cancers are caused by the way people live, research has found”. This compelling research published in the journal Nature, challenges the controversial theory that a large proportion of cancers are the inevitable result of cellular mistakes in the human body. It’s not just “Bad Luck”. The report goes on to estimate that 70 - 90% of the most widespread cancers had extrinsic or controllable causes, which include ultraviolet radiation from sunlight, pollution, stress and other factors that are within people’s control such as being overweight, poor diet, excess alcohol, smoking and inactivity.  This research is important for not only our own self-management of our health and cancer prevention but also the large-scale health policy for cancer prevention, research and public health. Activ8rlives says: This Christmas give yourself and your loved ones the best gift of all – tools, technology and encouragement to help you all be more active, eat well and lead healthier lifestyles.   
  • Pauline shares with us the last 12 months of Self-Care she has undertaken to improve her health and wellbeing as a sufferer of Bronchiectasis. Pauline is a real inspiration to others with respiratory disease showing that a few minutes of self-monitoring a day can help lung sufferers to stay out of hospital and keep well, whilst making improvements to health and enjoying life. Winter is now here. GPs, pharmacies, hospitals and health and social care partners are on alert to detect early signs of respiratory exacerbations, especially in the elderly. The challenge for hospitals is that they are already running at full capacity and scheduled operations are being cancelled to reduce demand. The data, collected by the Royal College of Emergency Medicine, showed 88% of A&E patients were treated or admitted within four hours - below the 95% target. Waiting times in A&E departments across the UK are worsening as pressures grow in hospitals, figures suggest. The figures are based on evidence submitted by more than 40 trusts - one in five of the total in the UK. Key is that hospitals continue to report significant problems discharging patients. In some places, a fifth of hospital beds are occupied by patients who are ready to leave hospital but cannot be discharged because of a lack of community services available to care for them (BBC, 27th November 2015). Care pathways are being redesigned to prevent hospital admissions in the first instance, providing care and support at home for those most at risk of hospitalisation. Self-monitoring of vital signs by the patient themselves as part of an agreed programme of Self-Care constructed in collaboration with the patient can form a cornerstone in reducing admissions and readmissions. Self-monitoring brings with it education, engagement and empowerment when undertaken with the encouragement and support of healthcare professionals. Pauline’s story demonstrates how many small changes collectively bring significant improvements in wellbeing, reversing a downward spiral of bouts of ill health, loss of life quality and reducing the risk of hospitalisation.
