Security and scalability;

24/7 patient support

The Challenge

My Way Digital Health required a secure and scalable cloud environment to support their innovative Diabetes management interactive website and app – ‘My Diabetes – My Way’.

My Way Digital Health is an exciting technology organisation, spun out from the University of Dundee in 2017. Their goal is to transform diabetes care globally through solutions that deliver data-driven knowledge and advice to patients and healthcare professionals.

Patients rely on their award-winning solutions to be always available, so they can manage their health easily day to day. This includes the flagship product, My Diabetes My Way, an online-self management platform and mobile app.

This platform helps more than 40,000 registered users in Scotland manage this serious condition by providing health record access, remote glucose monitoring, tailored information and support. This is providing measurably improved patient outcomes, whilst reducing costs for the NHS due to the self-managed nature of the solution.

The company has been so successful that My Way Digital Health are expanding their services outside of Scotland. Not only will this extend to some of the largest populations in the wider UK such as Greater Manchester, but the team also has plans to expand globally.

With the World Health Organisation predicting that the number of people living with diabetes will rise from an estimated 425 million people today to 629 million people in 2045, the demand for the type of innovative services that My Way Digital Health provides will only grow.
