    “Smart socks” that track sweat levels, heart rate and motion are being given to dementia patients to alert carers if they are becoming distressed. The unintrusive technology was developed by Dr Zeke Steer, of Bristol Universit. Dr Steer wanted to find a way to spot the early warning signs of distress, so carers or relatives could intervene with calming techniques to de-escalate the situation. The hi-tech hosiery - which look and feel like normal socks - use e-textiles to transmit data in real time to an app, which alerts carers when stress levels are rising. The socks are now b

    Analysis of thousands of tumours has unveiled a treasure trove of clues about the causes of cancer, representing a significant step towards the personalisation of treatment, a study suggests. Researchers say that for the first time it is possible to detect patterns – called mutational signatures – in the DNA of cancers. These provide clues including about whether a patient has had past exposure to environmental causes of cancer such as smoking or UV light, for example. This is important as these signatures allow doctors to look at each patient’s tumour and match it to specific t

    Digital technologies are transforming the way in which health and care is delivered. They have played a crucial role in enabling the delivery of services during the pandemic and are set to continue to play a pivotal role in the design, delivery and innovation of health and care going forward. This event will take a deep dive into the practical implementation of digital solutions in health and care. We will explore how data insights and technology are being used to improve care, access and user experience against the backdrop of the impact of Covid-19. Sessions will also provide an op

    Nearly 900 patients with type 1 diabetes in England are testing a potentially life-changing artificial pancreas. It can eliminate the need for finger prick tests and prevent life-threatening hypoglycaemic attacks, where blood sugar levels fall too low. The technology uses a sensor under the skin. It continually monitors the levels, and a pump automatically adjusts the amount of insulin required. Six-year-old Charlotte, from Lancashire, is one of more than 200 children using the hybrid closed loop system. Her mother, Ange Abbott, told us it has made a massive impact on the w

    Key findings: 1 in 5 patients says their wearable device is hard to use. The majority of patients who are manually inputting data (87%) have recorded inaccurate data on their wearable devices. Of these, 85% said the error occurred because the user interface was hard to understand. Despite challenges, patients still see the benefits of wearables: 49% of patients cited the biggest benefit of their wearable as a better understanding of their own health.

    The 10 key lessons: Dedicate sufficient time and resource to engage with end users. Co-design or co-production with end users is an essential tool when implementing technology. Identify the need and its wider impact on the system, not a need for a technology. Explore the motivators and barriers that might influence user uptake of an innovation. Ignore information governance requirements at your peril. Don’t be afraid to tailor the innovation along the journey. Ensure adequate training is built in for services using the technology. Embedding the

    A painful infection that mainly affects women is too often dismissed as "women's problems". One in every two women suffer a urinary tract infection (UTI) and they are the second most common infection globally. Among those affected is Hannah Hanratty, 36, who suffered months of agony despite multiple negative tests. During her pregnancy, Mrs Hanratty felt the "razor-blade burning pain" when passing urine. It soon developed into a constant pain. Two weeks after giving birth she needed antibiotics following a routine procedure and said the pain immediately went. "It was a UTI all along

    Key messages: Now is the time to reform general practice in England. Reform is not a distraction from tackling the biggest issues confronting the profession. A mixed economy should prevail, but with greater incentives for workforce, data and procurement to become coordinated through ‘layers of scale’ in cooperation with the NHS. Independent provision will continue to have a central role in primary care. The primary care pathway should be redesigned to improve access by creating a more coherent ‘first contact’. Ensure continuity of care is built into any ne

    A Scottish hospital has become the first in the UK and one of the first in the world to pilot using artificial intelligence (AI) in its cervical cancer screening programme. University Hospital Monklands has increased capacity by around 25% and improved analysis turn-around times with the measure, which experts said could “revolutionise” the screening process. The system, from medical technology company Hologic, creates digital images of cervical smear slides from samples that have tested positive for Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). These are then reviewed using an advanced algorith

    In 2020-21, the number of people visiting the A&E department at the East Kent University Hospital Trust (EKHUFT), one of the largest trusts in the south east, increased by up to 25%. At that time, we noted a surge in cases of falls in A&E, particularly those resulting in severe harm. The risk factors were clear: A&E departments were busier than they had ever been The quality of health in patients seeking help at A&E was declining Those seeking help had longer-than-usual waiting times in A&E departments There was no clear way for staff to indic

    This webinar chaired by Dr Jennifer Dixon, Chief Executive of The Health Foundation and featuring Dr Tim Ferris, NHS England’s Director of Transformation, will explore the next steps for service transformation at scale. Against the backdrop of the recent Wade-Gery review, the data strategy, the forthcoming Goldacre review and AI strategy, the new tech fund to support elective recovery, and a renewed focus on delivering the tech ambitions outlined in the Long Term Plan, how can these be linked to support service transformation better in practice? What will be different this time? Register

    NHS England’s plans to rapidly expand virtual wards are being ‘hastily rolled out’ and could put patients at risk while taking up significant staffing capacity, leading clinicians have warned. The Society for Acute Medicine and the Royal College of Physicians are among those who have raised concerns to HSJ about the huge increase in the use of the virtual wards model, under which patients are discharged home and given oximeters that fit on their finger so they can be remotely monitored by clinical staff. The concerns follow NHSE ordering trusts to ensure a minimum of 15% of hospital
