London, England, United Kingdom – February 11, 2024 —
In a significant stride forward for digital health, Professor James Ohene-Djan of Goldsmiths, University of London, in partnership with MiCode Ltd, has developed MiCode, the UK’s first digital passport for individuals with dementia and serious illnesses. This pioneering technology, previously recognised for its excellence in collaboration with Central and Northwest London NHS Foundation Trust, is now set to enhance the safety and independence of those living with cognitive challenges such as dementia and Alzheimer’s.
The MiCode digital passport is a personalised QR code that allows for instant access to vital health information. This reduces delays for emergency services, healthcare professionals, the police, and families, by providing immediate clarity when a person with dementia is confused or lost.
The system is designed with inclusivity at its core, supporting multiple languages to serve diverse communities effectively. It is both low-cost and low-maintenance, requiring no expensive apps or technology, and integrates seamlessly with NHS frameworks and private healthcare systems.
MiCode’s advanced capabilities include managing vast quantities of records and securely storing and broadcasting video, audio, and documents, making it an invaluable resource for community health management.
MiCode UK, founded by Professor James Ohene-Djan, is a beacon of innovation in health information accessibility. With a commitment to empowering patients and aiding caregivers, MiCode is at the forefront of improving lives through cutting-edge technology.
Ensure the well-being of family members with the MiCode digital health passport. For more information or to join the MiCode community, please visit https://www.micode.uk
