My diabetes My Way won the first prize in the eHealth Adoption Awards 2017

Out of a total of 40 applications , My Diabetes My Way was given the eHealth Adoption Award at the eHealth Week 2017 conference being held in Malta on May. Congratulations! 

 

The eHealth Adoption Awards, supported by the European Commission, recognise the work of both adopters and their technological suppliers in implementing digital health innovation for the benefit of patients. 

 

 

 

“This is a major honour for the University and Scotland’s health system,” said Dr Deborah Wake, Clinical Senior Lecturer in the University of Dundee School of Medicine and Clinical Lead for My Diabetes My Way.

 

“The My Diabetes My Way service is genuinely unique worldwide, providing electronic health records access to an entire national population. Every day we hear from users that our website is a useful tool that not only aids self-management, but improves a patient’s knowledge of their condition.”

 

 

My Diabetes My Way is a diabetes online platform created by University of Dundee for NHS Scotland. The platform allows patients to have online access to test results, clinic letters and data driven tailored treatment plans. It also contains multimedia resources aimed at improving self-management, including traditional information leaflets, interactive educational tools, videos describing diabetes-related complications and testimonials from people with diabetes talking about their experiences.

 


 

Congratulations to the finalists!

 

Nephroflow and Ergo are also considered one of the best success stories when it comes to deploying eHealth in Europe. Both are a great example of how  organisations can improve the delivery of health and care-related services with the support of innovative technology.  

 

We invite you to know a little bit more about them. Well done!
