MyWay Diabetes: Healthcare Professional Section

Welcome to the healthcare professional resource page for MyWay Diabetes (known as Diabetes My Way in Greater Manchester)! It’s great that our platform has been commissioned in your region. On this page, you will find out i) what the platform offers, ii) how to enable access for your patients and iii) links to your local resources page. This will support you in promoting the service to your patients.

What is MyWay Diabetes?

Our MyWay Diabetes platform provides:

  • A regional website with hundreds of open access resources, including multi-language content
  • 8 QISMET-accredited eLearning courses for type 1, type 2, type 2 diabetes prevention and gestational diabetes (see leaflet here)
  • Patient access to their diabetes-related health records along with tailored advice

Who can access MyWay Diabetes?

MyWay diabetes operates to the NHS philosophies of equality of access and services being free at the point of care – therefore all people with diabetes in the region where the service has been commissioned can access all of the resources with no charge to them. Also of note, there is no limit to the number of times they revisit, we encourage the use of information and education resources by friends and family.

What are the benefits?

Users benefit from having ‘information in their pocket’. With over 200 quick access resources available plus a full suite of structured eLearning courses (QoF and NDA friendly), they can learn where and when suits them best. Using NHS data to populate easily to understand dashboards means we can also show tailored content.

Evidence shows users make better use of consultations, feel more confident in self-management and show improvements in key metabolic measures. More information on the product evidence base can be found here. The video below highlights the features of MyWay Diabetes:

Registration Process for Patient Access

User:

NHS Login

We are encouraging people to register and authenticate for our service using NHS login. This is the preferred option in Greater Manchester (through the Diabetes My Way site).

Online Services

For other areas where NHS login is not currently enabled users need to be registered for online service through the GP practice. They will then receive 3 codes:

  • Linkage Key
  • ODS Code
  • Account ID

These will then need to be entered by the user during their registration process. This verifies the identity of the user and ensures that the data will flow from their GP record to their MyWay Diabetes account.

You can see the patient registration flow chart here (please note there are region-specific flow charts available through your local resources page).

GP Practice:

GP practices will need to enable records access from EMIS to our MyWay Diabetes platform. This is a one time set up and will allow us to access the data for all people with diabetes registered at the practice. You can access the full instructions on how to enable this here.

If you have any questions or need any further assistance, please email us at support@mwdh.co.uk.
