Remote Outpatient Care (ROC)

By Geoff Wilcock, Openbrolly Health Added 15th Sep, 2016 Updated 23rd Jul, 2019

Openbrolly Health enables new care pathways and processes using our ROC platform for Digital Health, empowering people living with long-term conditions to live better lives and allowing organisations to use more cost-effective delivery methods. We collaborate with patients, clinicians, device manufacturers, service providers and charities to deliver innovative care pathways. We provide the experience, Digital Health “Innovation Gyms” and ROC "the software glue" that joins it together: collecting, moving, delivering and analysing information and enabling new working practices to be integrated effectively.


We have already worked to provide solutions for IBD and bowel cancer patients and their care teams under funding from Crohn’s and Colitis UK and Macmillan Cancer Support. This is now operational in NHS Highland with wider rollout planned. We also have live projects in palliative care and diabetes and, recently we have begun testing our work with 3rd sector health care providers in mental health recovery.

We now believe the care paths and operational drivers in many areas of chronic illness have some commonality and that we have addressed many key issues. We have developed our ROC platform to be customisable for care areas and organisational context.

We have recently opened an office in Newcastle.

We are now looking for partners to further evaluate either another chronic condition or in another geographic area.
