Development of a video and health data platform

For: A health technology start-up

The issue:

A health technology start-up wanted to bring video communication and health data collection for the NHS and social care system to help support keeping patients out of hospital by:

  • Supporting early discharge from hospital
  • Providing support to manage long-term conditions
  • Facilitating GP referrals to secondary care using video, and additionally
  • Remotely supporting the physical and mental health of prisoners using video.

What we did:

Strategy & feasibility

Defined of the end-to-end technology solution as well as the business strategy and approach to collaboration with care providers.

Proof of concept & design

Developed the hardware and software solutions, including video communication using the patient’s TV facilitated by a set top box.

Development & Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

Produced the product prototype, and designed and developed the embedded software stack, the cloud platform and the in-home equipment.

Scaled solution

Provided manufacturing support, engagement with broadband providers and development of the service proposition.


Ensured hardware and software compliance with necessary regulation and standards.

Driven by knowledge of deploying scalable set top box technology into the home, a start-up communication company was supported in developing a health and social care service communications technology. The service was a system integration of hardware, software, cloud platform, broadband and mobile devices.
