Digital Healthcare

Damibu is a Liverpool based digital health technology studio that works mainly with NHS CCGs, NHS Trusts and other Public Sector bodies to develop simple innovative solutions to complex problems.

Co-creation is how we work. Solving problems in healthcare needs insight from the people at the centre of those services, ensuring the final solution meets the patient’s requirements.

Partnerships are an important part of how we work. We continue to work on projects with NHS, Public Sector and Multinational Organisations delivering innovation.

Damibu uses a Human centred design process, which follows the steps of Discover, Define, Develop, Deliver. This is at the forefront of all our projects, and the user is considered at each stage meticulously.

Our Projects

Common Approach To Children's Health
For health organisations, CATCH is a co-created service for enabling behaviour change. For users, CATCH is an app providing trusted, local health information from pregnancy up to age five. CATCH stands for the Common Approach to Children’s Health, coined in East Cheshire where it was recognised that providing consistent, accurate messages across all services in health and social care is important. CATCH provides a single simple user experience for parents and a simple message to professionals: ‘For local information you can trust, download CATCH’.
The aim of the project was to design, develop, test and deploy a solution to collect data from users across multiple projects, understanding the data collection requirements for each project may differ. A mobile app will provide a simple, intuitive and semi-automated interface for users to submit evidence securely.
My House of Memories
My House of Memories is a digital reminiscence activity app for people living with dementia. Damibu worked with people with dementia and their carers throughout an extensive design process to identify the challenges they face when using technology. These findings were used to create design features in the app. My House of Memories now also available in Minnesota, US, and has won a number of national and international awards, including the Innovate Dementia Award at the World Health and Design Forum 2014. Damibu continue to develop and maintain the app for National Museums Liverpool.


A Collaborative Approach
"Damibu have a very creative and collaborative approach, supported by extremely efficient project management skills. This has been a great project to work on together, and the Damibu team have brought a dynamic and engaging new approach to interpretation to the Lady Lever Art Gallery.”
-Jane Skinner, Senior Project Co-ordinator, National Museums Liverpool
Working Together
“Working with Damibu has been both great and really interesting, Kate and John have been extremely helpful and professional whenever we have worked together. They have happily met with us on numerous occasions so we can both share what we do and what work we are currently working on and discuss how we can work together.”
-Jessica Anderson, Digital Health Team, PSS
"We want CATCH to give parents and carers the knowledge and self-confidence to treat their children themselves when appropriate, but equally not be deterred from taking their child to their GP or A&E in a genuine emergency or after an accident"
-Dr Lesley Bayliss, NHS Eastern Cheshire CCG's children's champion
