Making the Diabetic Foot Service More Effective with an Innovative Digital Solution

Summary

This technology-enabled model of care was developed for the more cost-effective management of patients with active diabetes foot ulcers (DFUs). It deploys a digital imaging, 3D measurement and data management system and has been adopted in South Derbyshire, straddling acute and community services. The impact of the new model is under continuous evaluation, however interim results at six months demonstrated advantages in areas such as objective DFU assessment, DFU outcomes monitoring and improved access to services.
