O2 launches into the health market

Patients will increasingly be put in control of their own health as part of a new vision for healthcare outlined by O2 Health.

O2 Health will aim to affect positive change across the NHS by forming partnerships with healthcare providers to gain an understanding of their challenges, before deploying bespoke solutions that create benefits for patients and health workers alike.

Keith Nurcombe, Head of O2 Health, said: "This is not about mobile-health or e-health, this is about patients. We are already starting to see real benefits - improved patient care and efficiency savings where we have been working with health providers.

"The NHS is looking for ways to do more with fewer resources, but this can't be at the expense of patients, service or standards. We understand the NHS, and can help it - and our private partners - to deliver more for less through smarter working."

Ben Dowd, Business Sales Director of O2 said: "Now is the right time to launch into the health market. Just last week the government set out its desire to put patients at the heart of their own care and it is an aim shared by O2 Health. The UK has an ageing population with increasingly complex healthcare needs but resources are limited. Healthcare providers need to look for innovative ways to provide patients with more choice and control over their care.

"We've listened to our existing healthcare customers and have developed solutions that will deliver real benefits. Our patient centred approach, combined with a team with real experience of working in the health sector, means we are well positioned to deliver real change in healthcare provision."O2 launches into the health market
