Your Health Companion

In collaboration with DaSH Global, Mesothelioma UK has developed a new, digital ‘Health Companion’ which enables patients to submit data regarding their quality of life and experiences in the management of mesothelioma, as well as any costs associated with the condition.

Patients can submit their answers at any time outside routine clinical appointments. By providing them with the capability to record, monitor and communicate healthcare information, patients will be able to take more control in the management of their condition, and improve the interaction and outcomes they have with healthcare services.

The data collected from the Health Companion will provide evidence to support better targeting of services and enhance the nurse-patient communications. Health Companion managers will also be available to support patients directly or via communications with the clinical nurse.

Mesothelioma UK, as part of this partnership, will be able to access the anonymised data to undertake research and audit and may be able to earn additional income for the charity through ethically approved research studies from commercial companies.
