Prevention is better than cure. At MEDIdesign we are seeking to enhance prevention via a number of strategies:
- Reducing cost – by dramatically reducing cost, the aim is to support general screening of at risk groups long before symptoms become apparent, to enable proactive prevention methods to be deployed
- Spreading the load – by simplifying processes and enhancing safety checks, scarce central resource can be supplemented by large-scale local detection at GP surgeries or elsewhere
- Targeting via risk assessment – by robust analysis of the data, insights into the incidence likelihood of various population groups can be provided to identify higher risk segments where early intervention is warranted.
