It is estimated that by the early 2020’s there will be a £30 billion funding gap in UK public health care provision. The population is growing, people are living longer, care costs for older people are rising, A&E visits are increasing and staffing levels are falling. A radical rethink of the way health services are currently delivered remains high on the policy agenda. Frog Systems health and wellbeing solutions are designed to assist with the move from a reactive care model to a preventative one.
Frog Systems offers a unique Lived/Shared Experience solution for the discovery and delivery of health and well-being information.
Frog’s bespoke hyperlocal Content Management System – combines quality video content with signposting mental health and well being support information to improve pathways to care.
The platform already hosts professionally curated videos of real people telling real stories in no more than 60 seconds. Topics range from to addiction, cancer, HIV, bereavement, domestic abuse through to loss of sight. For those struggling with life it can be hard to find positive stories from people who have survived; YouTube for example is full of unstructured videos which focus on worst moments or offer unrelated or inappropriate additional content.
The platform offers a very different user experience to the more traditional ‘signposting’ type health directories – of which there are thousands – as the video’s subject matter is related to the display of relevant local support within the same frame.
The platform can be customised by businesses, local authorities, health and care providers, housing associations, sports and education bodies to deliver appropriate information through the display of relevant local support groups/organisations within ‘one click’.
Data driven discovery
Providing the tools and support to enable individuals to take greater control of their own health, adopting social prescribing approaches and recognising the importance of the role played by the Third Sector in service delivery is being widely recognised as the path we must take.
With the NHS facing a number of critical challenges, from social to economic, multi stakeholder partnerships at community level will become vital if we are to support people to stay well for longer.
However, this journey will not be without its bumps and challenges. Most small third sector and community organisations operate on a hyper local basis and have limited visibility or knowledge of the ‘wider area’ leading to over or under supply of services and increased pressure on limited funding pots.
Frog offers third sector organisations a number of data driven digital solutions to assist in the planning and delivery of services on a local basis, primarily around the discovery of current community assets and the service supply and demand.
The Champions Cinema® is key to our vision – a professionally curated and innovative video channel which captures the power of the lived experience to communicate messages of hope and encouragement through short impactful one-minute films.
Video makes up 80% of all consumer Internet traffic and yet it is a vital communications channel often overlooked by health and wellbeing service providers.
Frog offers a full turn-key production service for providers seeking to engage people through the power of the visual story. We can create bespoke and custom video content to engage your audience in a way that is just not possible with printed or written information.
The use of lived and shared experience will encourages people facing health challenges to believe that they are not alone and that support exists.
