Patient Management Tools

Our unique web based software offers secure access to a clinically useful electronic health record, alongside clinical guidance and an advisory system.

Clinical Governance

Our governance system gives anonymised access to INR and AF related results at practitioner, site, CCG and total service level.

Education and eLearning

Our courses for patients and healthcare professionals blend e-learning with face-to-face support.

Helicon Health started life delivering algorithmic precision medicine in stroke prevention with a strong clinical and socio technical research background. This led us naturally to hone our skills in the internet of medical things, remote vital sign monitoring and remote consultation. We describe what we do as “delivering healthcare virtually” which with quality, integrity and a sense of collaboration and fair-play is our mission.
