My CheckMate: The Fluid Heart Tracker app

Weight is one way to identify if heart failure is getting worse or if changes to medication are required to control extra fluid. A mobile app which has been developed in collaboration between the Irish Heart Foundation, Team OSVX, and PerCen Technologies, is a self-care tool that removes the need for written weight logs

Rapid access online backcare programme

Rapid-Access Online Back Care (ABC) Programme was created by Aoife Collins. Her award winning, evidence-based group programme is delivered via an integrated software platform by Salaso Health Solutions. Moving from a traditional-care model to an innovative digital-care model, this easy-to-use, GDPR-compliant software will provide a patient portal and smartphone application, linked with a platform for the physiotherapist who will devise and manage the programme.
