Innovate Healthier Together Lunch and Learn Series: Mayden


An update from the Innovate Healthier Together Programme.

The Innovate Healthier Together programme hosted its third lunch and learn session which focused on fostering healthy behaviours through innovation. Chris Sivers, Executive Director of Children, Adults and Health at South Gloucestershire Council and chair of the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Improving he Lives of our Children Health and Care Improvement Group, introduced the session.

Dr Philippa Kindon and Helen Barnes from Bath-based company Mayden shared the story of how they designed and built insightful software that supports healthcare services to deliver data driven, outcome focussed and patient centred care.

They presented their Electronic Health Record (EPR)- Iaptus which is the market leading system for psychological therapies in the UK, securely holding the records of over 7 million patients including those of the NHS Talking Therapies and Children and Young People’s Mental Health programmes.

laptus was rated in the hundredth percentile for useability and patient experience among NHS mental health EPRs in a survey carried out by NHS England in 2022.  The software has been designed around the concept of configurable care pathways where outcome measures can be captured at every step of the service users healthcare journey. As a result, valuable data can be drawn on to develop patient centered approaches.

Iaptus has been developed via a series of innovations co-created with and for their ever-evolving community of customers contributing to a continuous cycle of improvement. Mayden have also taken on several larger SBRI funding projects that have made significant changes to the software to meet the needs of the service.

The company continue to find ways to ensure the experience of keeping health records is better for teams, so they have more times to see patients. Mayden remain committed to ongoing innovation and continue to seek opportunities to work in partnership with customers, patients and other providers in the ecosystem to meet the needs of the healthcare service including improved analytics decision support and new opportunities to integrate and achieve personalised patient-centered care.

Our next lunch and learn will be on 24 May. Dr Paul Downie, Consultant Chemical Pathologist at the Bristol Royal Infirmary will discuss Child Parent Screening and how this is used to detect Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH). FH is an inherited condition passed down through families which will lead to extremely high cholesterol levels.  It affects 1 in 250 within the UK, yet still over 90% of patients with this condition remain undiagnosed.

Child Parent Screening is currently the best innovative model for FH detection allowing for early intervention to increase life expectancy and reduce premature mortality within Primary Care. Many practices within Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire were early innovators for this pilot and are leading the way in terms of the number of babies screened.
