We took diabetes education online with the Leicester Diabetes Centre and produced an all encompassing responsive elearning and health management platform.
DESMOND is a well establish face to face educational programme for people with type 2 diabetes, which has been successful throughout the UK. Our task was to take the DESMOND ethos and educational sessions and produce a digital version for patients who are unable to attend face to face groups or as an extra support tool for DESMOND programme graduates.
The solution was a bespoke platform encompassing self improvement tools to track health metrics, custom built authoring tools to produce interactive and responsive e-learning sessions and a management system behind the scenes for patient administration and reporting. It was developed with scalability in mind to allow multiple Trusts to access the system using a SASS model.
The long term goal of MyDESMOND was to lay the foundations for a web based platform for use across the LDC’s programmes. It has already been repurposed for use in another project and will continue to form the basis of future developments.
The platform has since been repurposed for another diabetes prevention programme with a modified version called Healthier You.
