HEAL.med Comminity Interest Company


HEAL.med CIC is a start-up MedTech not-for-profit company which aims to deliver high quality healthcare education to newly diagnosed patients across the UK. The flagship learning resource that has been created is The Diabetes Education App, or Deapp (prouncouced 'Deep'), which improves the lives of newly diagnosed children and young people with Type-1 Diabetes. Deapp was a NHS pilot within the East Midlands Network before evolving into a spin-out and covering over 50 UK NHS sites. Deapp combines an app containing 36 videos and animations created by specialist nurses, doctors and healthcare professionals and organised into a structured education based on flipped learning. HEAL.med’s goal is to distribute the training and resources of Deapp to as many hospitals as possible at a low cost, whilst delivering high quality and medically accurate education for patients, including their family and friends. HEAL.med is supported by the NHS.
