Buddy-Using Social Media To Improve Patient's Well Being

UK-based social innovation company, Sidekick Studios have designed a digital social care service called Buddy. Aimed at improving the well-being of people living with long term conditions, Buddy is a social media radio that lets users turn a dial on to select how they are feeling, and the service instantly broadcasts their mood in real-time to a range of social media platforms. By using social media, Buddy reaches out to friends and families, in addition to healthcare professionals, extending the community of carers. The project has been awarded a contract by NHS London.
