In this paper, we present information about two related software tools which solves two healthcare problems. In the first case, we have developed a Connected Health software solution, Homesafe Care, to monitor long-term conditions, through connecting a patient to his / her General Practitioner – a one-to-one relationship. Through discussion with an Indian-based charity, Varanasi Children’s Hospital, we then realized that the software could be updated to support their cause, improving children’s nutrition. However, this meant that the system had to be changed to support many-to-one relationships, where many children were being supported by one single care worker, and this information would be submitted to a central office.
