of living with diabetes. Now Patient has

Now Patient is part of Now Healthcare Group (NHG), which, as well as offering a

digital private and NHS prescriptions service, puts app-based tech into the hands

of the patient by providing digital access to GP consultations. NHG has recently

issued a report highlighting that £7.5bn could be saved on public health services if

digital health was adopted across England.

The findings of the report showed that by using telehealth/digital consultations,

there is less need for an NHS GP appointment in 56% of cases, and less need of a

hospital appointment in 3% of cases. In addition, pre-triage app technology could

potentially re-direct up to 73% of patients to non-GP consultations (eg nurse or

pharmacist), reducing pressure on primary care doctors.

The figures, based on live Now Healthcare data combined with publicly available

NHS and academic sources, also highlighted that £2.2bn potential savings

(annually) through redirecting patients via app-based tech to non-GP consultations

(eg a nurse or pharmacist).

It also found that 27% of consultations held using the app did not need to

be handled by a GP where 41% could have been handled by another healthcare

professional, such as a pharmacist or nurse. This highlights that if an effective pretriage function was

set up within a telehealth app, patient pressure on GPs could

be reduced by up to 73%.
