Dimension – The Dementia Progression app

The first Friday of every month, we host our longest standing event: Leeds Digital Coffee Morning. A breakfast event of networking and an interactive app session fully stocked with 200 Degrees coffee & pastries goodies!

We spent the morning networking with new and returning faces while enjoying a delicious 200 Degrees breakfast in The Mezzanine in Platform, next to the Leeds Train Station.

This is followed by our interactive app session. These are a routine part of LDCM each month, where our attendees vote for their favourite crowd-sourced idea.

The brand new app created in this morning’s session was ‘Dimension’, with the main goal being an efficient workflow and support flow for both the patient and stakeholder. There were so many ideas of what the event should include, but here’s a summary of the main elements of the morning.

An easier way to keep track

The app would store all medical notes, alongside personal data that could be captured by sensors all to be accessible by stakeholders through a secure platform, that only allows an authorised person access.

Another element of the app that the group found really essential was a community portal. This would allow users to upload personal stories and experiences. As well as recommendations for Dementia friendly places, venues, and shops. Not to mention, fully accessible events.

Integrated within, a facility to view social care workers, recommended workshops and track the progress of how the individual is progressing and their improvements. Early meaningful alerts would be introduced to this element in order to track any emerging patterns, potentially including the use of wearables down the line.

Here’s some more from this morning…
