Fast-growth digital innovator Priority Digital Health has welcomed this week’s announcement by the British Medical Association which calls for Social Prescribing to be a default option for GP Practices and incorporated fully into GP Practice IT systems.
Joint Chief Executive of Priority Digital Health, Alison Meadows, said “We strongly welcome The British Medical Association’s call for social prescribing to be incorporated fully into GP IT systems. As members of the Social Prescribing Network we recognise the empowering role of Social Prescribing in enabling people to take greater control of their health and wellbeing while reducing the strain on GP Practices and NHS appointments generally.”
The leading-edge proprietary Priority Platform, which underpins the service offering by Priority Digital Health, is accredited by the NHS EMIS Health patient-management system and is already powering services to over 7 million UK patients. It has DCB O129 compliance and the internationally renowned ISO 27001 accreditation.
The Cambridge-based firm’s focus is on disease prevention and health promotion and the Priority Platform is transforming the way patients access primary care services online through effective self-referral, including for Social Prescribing. The platform has an effective case management system for healthcare providers.
Its proven track record includes the successful Essex Welfare Service platform, launched in response to Covid-19, and Diabetes Book and Learn in South London, which is enabling people living with Type 1 and 2 diabetes to book diabetes education courses that will help them manage their condition and potentially save the NHS millions of pounds.
