Life began for MIME...
MIME® is the result of a 5 year research and development programme, funded by the RCUK Digital Economy Programme, the Digital Health & Care Institute and Highland & Islands Enterprise, and led by healthcare professionals working with computing scientists at the University of Aberdeen. What started as a project to provide enhanced patient monitoring for search and rescue teams quickly expanded to include the provision of distance health and first response care for remote communities.
Healthcare has become increasingly focused on the provision of ever more sophisticated support for dense populations, with little new in the way of services or protocols for remote communities or people who live on the edge of the healthcare network. Collectively we had identified a core gap in the market, that frontline remote care can be better supported.
We decided to address this through the use of digital real-time wireless technologies that capture more information on-scene and enhance remote communication with care providers. MIME® enables a detailed picture of the patient to be captured over the first hours (or days) after an incident. Real-time patient improvement or deterioration can be identified and reliably reported. MIME® also communicates this information with healthcare professionals, enabling better informed decisions and completing the whole patient journey from on-scene to professional or hospital care.
Having completed Human Factors trials of our technology at activity events across Scotland, working with UK ambulance service providers and a leading humanitarian aid agency, we secured a CE-mark for our first product and incorporated our company in 2015.
MIME Technologies are based in Inverness, the Highland capital of Scotland and a Scottish Life Science hub. Our team at MIME® have expertise in medicine, physiology and computing science, which is essential for developing our innovative solutions for remote healthcare.
