Atlantis Healthcare has been selected to receive a share of a £2m fund to develop a multi-channel patient support programme for people with chronic kidney disease.

The award is part of the Department of Health's kidney care small business research initiative (SBPRI) competition, which is managed by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) healthcare technology co-operative's Devices for Dignity (D4D).

It aims to give small business the opportunity to develop ideas and technologies that could prevent kidney disease, allow earlier diagnosis and give patients with kidney failure greater independence with enabled treatment closer to home.

David Coyle, project manager at D4D, said: “We have used our extensive networks within the kidney community to ensure the competition addresses the needs of patients be seeking input from patients, clinicians, academics and industry.”

Working in partnership with Renal Patient View, the multimedia support programme developed by Atlantis Healthcare will support patients to improve self-management of their renal disease and increase adherence to anti-hypertensive medication.

Atlantis aims to pilot the programme with the help of clinical team at the North Bristol NHS Trust and Salford Royal Infirmary.

Professor Weinman, lead investigator for the pilot study, added: “This programme is a very exciting opportunity to use the most up-to-date health psychology approaches to provide a self-management intervention, tailored to individual patients' needs with the aim of making positive changes in behaviour to delay progression of chronic kidney disease.”
