"Welcome to the Health and Wellbeing page, a place where you can find out more about the Catapult’s activities in this key focus area. Satellite applications have a crucial role to play in enabling access to remote self-management solutions, providing remote monitoring and early diagnostics, and facilitating shared clinical-decision making. It is acknowledged in the NHS, and in healthcare systems across the globe, that we must help citizens to manage their own health more effectively. Part of this is definitely about prevention but if we cannot prevent we still want to help people manage their conditions more effectively ideally away from the clinic, in their own homes and local communities."

Why Health and Wellbeing?
Why Health and Wellbeing?

Why Health and Wellbeing?

Our vision is to use satellite applications to deliver transformational change in the way that healthcare and wellbeing services are delivered.

We are initially targeting the NHS across the UK to demonstrate our ability to diffuse satellite-based innovation at scale before expanding to also focus on export and private healthcare markets. 

The primary focus is scaled diffusion of remote healthcare solutions.  The key use cases are based on managing long term conditions and solutions for improving the efficiency of emergency response; both use cases prioritise early intervention/diagnosis and remote monitoring/consultation, which should reduce service delivery costs and alleviate pressure on hospital/GP services.     

Our Focus Areas

Our current activities are aligned to:

Emergency Response

We're looking to improve the efficiency of ambulances and reduce conveyancing through a number of specific case studies underpinned by ubiquitous connectivity.

Managing Long Term Conditions

Satellite-enabled applications can help manage long term conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, cancers, respiratory diseases and diabetes. Along with the additional impact of mental health, these topics are where healthcare budgets are mainly spent.

Key Developments

How we're working within these areas

Early Intervention and Diagnosis

Early detection and timely treatment will deliver high impact, long-term condition interventions and can reduce the need for more expensive treatment. Studies show intervention is more likely to be taken early where it is offered conveniently to the patient, at home or digitally.

Remote monitoring and consultation

This could change where key transformational healthcare initiatives are delivered and can work towards providing the same levels of care being offered and delivered to all. It also allows people to own their healthcare and to be conscious of their surroundings in regards to green space and impact of air quality.
