Flo: Telehealth with a human touch
Flo is part of the Power of people, our series of films about life-changing health care innovation. Find out more: http://www.health.org.uk/powerofpeople
Flo is a simple telehealth system that uses text messages to support patients to manage their own health and wellbeing. Our film shows how Flo can help people in different ways: to manage diabetes, to live with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and to breastfeed.
Flo has had a huge impact on people’s lives, revolutionising the way patients manage their own health. Since 2010 it has been used by more than 30,000 people in over 70 health and social care organisations in the UK. A simple to use system with a big personality, Flo shows that telehealth does not have to be about complicated health care technology.
Our film explores how Flo works and how it has changed people’s lives by enabling them to manage their own health and care.
