We say ‘prescribed’ for an important reason: we believe the challenges of chronic disease are best solved with deep involvement from healthcare professionals and the healthcare system. We want to use world-class design and technology to help improve the relationship between patients and their clinicians. How we achieve this mission:
Providing the tools and information to help people bring their condition under control and know what to do if things start to go wrong.
Helping clinicians find therapeutic effectiveness for their patients more efficiently and quickly by providing them with real-world data and insights.
There are roughly 26 million people in the UK and 200 million in the US living with one or more chronic diseases. This represents 70% of primary and acute care spending every year. It is the main challenge facing governments and healthcare systems worldwide.
Declared a “worldwide problem of striking magnitude” by the WHO, medical non-adherence occurs roughly half of the time and accounts for 50% of all treatment failures. This makes medicine less effective, prescribed care more challenging and costs the NHS £930m per year.
Traditional models of healthcare focusing on individual diseases can cause fragmented care due to a lack of coordination. People with multiple conditions have poorer quality of life and higher rates of mortality. We focus on supporting comorbidity, which is critically underserved.
The impact of long-term conditions is passed onto the wider economy, with an estimated $3.4 trillion of lost productivity in the US every year due to sickness absence. It is the second most common cause of missing work.
Find out how Aide is making a real difference in the NHS to support health and wellness in patients living with long-term conditions.
Our duty of care, above everything else, is to the people who are living with long-term conditions and using Aide every day. Our work is designed to empower them and help them achieve better health. We design for the patient first, clinicians a close second.
We are not interested in short-termism. No shortcuts, no quick wins. Using Aide means inviting a new technology into your life. That relationship, and the validity of the insights for both the patient and clinician, is built on enduring trust. We don’t take this role for granted.
We want our impact to be demonstrable. That said, digital health is new in the lifetime of medicine, and things move quickly. We are willing to challenge accepted thinking and research and put significant effort into proving or disproving the value of our work.
Our goal is to set the absolute highest standards in experience for digital health. This translates into every interaction of our company, large or small. To achieve that, there is a lot we need to learn, and we don’t assume to already know the answer.
We’re always on the lookout for talented members to join out team. Find our open roles.
