Digital Health Passport to Aid Dementia and Alzheimer's Care

The UK’s first digital passport for individuals with dementia and serious illnesses has been launched.

In a significant stride forward for digital health, Professor James Ohene-Djan of Goldsmiths, University of London, has developed MiCode.

This pioneering technology is now set to enhance the safety and independence of those living with cognitive challenges such as dementia and Alzheimer's.

The MiCode digital passport is a personalised QR code that allows for instant access to vital health information. This reduces delays for emergency services, healthcare professionals, the police, and families, by providing immediate clarity when a person with dementia is confused or lost.

The system is designed with inclusivity at its core, supporting multiple languages to serve diverse communities effectively. It is both low-cost and low maintenance, requiring no expensive apps or technology, and integrates seamlessly with NHS frameworks and private healthcare systems.

MiCode’s advanced capabilities include managing vast quantities of records and securely storing and broadcasting video, audio, and documents, making it an invaluable resource for community health management.
