English trial for Health Guide

7th July 2010

A trust has implemented Intel's Health Guide as part of a year long pilot for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients.

NHS Central Lancashire will use the Health Guide with 40 patients in the first English trial of the device. Anne Walton, NHS Central Lancashire’s community matron locality lead, said: "This new technology allows patients to take a more active role in their own care and to learn more about their own condition. This will hopefully teach them how to spot signs of symptoms so they can act sooner to avoid being admitted to hospital."
