Local Cambridgeshire healthcare company, Aseptika Ltd (Activ8rlives) has been awarded the Digital or Artificial Intelligence healthcare innovation awards at the Meridian Awards – A Celebration of Innovation, for its ground-breaking Active+me patient activation programme.

The Active+me programme combines group exercise classes, health coaching, peer support, PAM (Patient Activation Measure) monitoring, with Aseptika – Activ8rlives self-care monitoring technology. This allows health and care professionals remote access to patient health and wellbeing data helping to identify deterioration in conditions more quickly than traditional methods of support.

Kevin Auton Ph.D, Managing Director at Aseptika Ltd (Activ8rlives) said: “It’s a huge boost to the hard-working Aseptika team and recognition for all the patients who have dedicated themselves to staying well by becoming highly activated. They were every bit as delighted as we were!

“The feasibility study in Cambridgeshire was support by Eastern Academic Health Science Network (EAHSN) in 2017/8. We have been working closely with West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN), University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire to transfer and extend the Active+me protocol to Coventry, to help meet the challenges defined in the NHS Long-Term plan.”
