World Health Day is upon us again, with this year’s theme as Beat Diabetes – which is the mantra that Team Elemental live and breathe every day.
Recent figures published on 6 April 2016 show that the cost of diabetes to the UK National Health Service equates to over £25,000 being spent on diabetes every minute and if rising trends continue in the United Arab Emirates, the cost has been estimated to be £6billion.
Elemental has been established to directly impact on this ever-increasing spend.
We are helping patients, healthcare professionals, health commissioners, communities and governments to beat diabetes by early detection, prevention and better management of Type 2 Diabetes using social prescribing technology, Elemental.
Our social prescribing software is delivering the recommendations made by health strategies across the world to combat the epidemic of obesity, poor diet, inactivity and other risk factors that come with the 21st century lifestyle.
In a recent study conducted by Ulster University our software and approach was proven to reduce the level of risk of Type 2 Diabetes amongst high risk patients.
The summary of the study and the findings are available below.
