Gestational diabetes mellitus affects thousands of mothers-to-be in the UK each year and can lead to serious complications including high rates of stillbirth and congenital anomalies. A digital health solution has reduced the number of face-to-face appointments needed and has led to better outcomes for the pregnancies.
GDm-Health started as a “proof of concept” collaboration between Oxford University Hospitals Foundation Trust and Oxford University’s institute of biomedical engineering. The aim was to create a method that was reliable and accurate but was also convenient for women to use and cost-saving for healthcare providers. The system allows women with out of threshold readings to be prioritised so that clinicians can focus on them.
