Personalised digital healthcare solutions
Founded by hospital doctors, software engineers and business managers, Definition Health delivers a personalised, digital approach to surgery for patients and hospitals; offering maximum flexibility in the way hospitals communicate, pre-assess, and rehabilitate patients, wherever they may be.
Definition Health is a ground-breaking, best in class digital health company that is revolutionising the hospital-based approach to healthcare. Founded in 2018 by two practising NHS Consultants, we have produced the first UK end to end digital journey for surgical patients with the primary aims; to drive improved outcomes, increase efficiency and deliver an enhanced patient experience.
We have recently been chosen by NHS England through the NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) as one of only twelve innovations (and the only surgical solution) to help the NHS recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. We are proud that throughout the pandemic our systems have supported the NHS and Independent Sector in the remote pre-assessment of surgical patients across multiple specialties including cancer services.

“I can see all the pre-assessment in one place, including information that you wouldn’t easily find or get from a paper version: the medical history, BMI, medications, COVID and MRSA status, ECG, blood results and all relevant
investigations. We can even get the STOP BANG score which is quite important for an anaesthetist. LifeBox also gives the patient a voice as they can talk about their lifestyle and what makes them anxious. And all the notes are legible – something you don’t often get with the paper assessment”
Dr Georges Iskandar, Consultant Anaesthetist for UCLH and HJE
“The biggest benefit of LifeBox is it increases patient safety. It gives me confidence because all patients undergo a full pre-assessment, and it gives the patient confidence that we take their wellbeing seriously. It’s great that all the information is so easily accessed by all that need it and in advance of their admission. It really feels like we’ve dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s for every case with no unwanted surprises on the day. Patients arrive fully informed and ready to go ahead with their treatment.”
David Redfern, Consultant Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgeon at the London Foot and Ankle Centre
