New solutions for a chronic condition

Care providers at Radboud university medical center in Nijmegen, Netherlands, were looking for a way to better manage care for their patients with chronic conditions, and saw potential in the growth of mobile devices and wireless technology. 

 

Teaming up with Radboud, we developed a prototype solution for continuously monitoring COPD patients, including at home. The solution collects patient vital signs from a wearable sensor as well as feedback the patient enters directly into the eCareCompanion mobile application.

 

The information is tracked and compiled in the HealthSuite digital cloud. Care providers can monitor a patient’s condition while they are home and make adjustments in care as needed. Meanwhile, the patient has access to the same data, giving them greater insight into their own condition.

Connecting care from the hospital room to the living room

Giving patients access to their own data, and being able to share it with their family and care-team, is an exciting new reality in connected care.
Between doctor visits, the patient’s health measurements are captured by the sensor and tracked by the app.

Meanwhile, the clinician has access to the same data, so providers can make adjustments to treatment between visits.

Patients can easily share their data with specialists and family, so everyone involved in their care has a complete picture of their condition.
