Comunicare connects the patient with his care givers.
One platform, several interfaces
The platform aggregates information from the hospital to the patient and collects the patient reported outcomes.
Comunicare's main innovation is the personalization of patient information according to his dedicated care pathway and it enables a smart interaction between the patient and his care givers.
The mobile application informs the patient about his care pathway, facilitates his therapeutic adhesion and the communication of outcomes to the medical team. The application provides access to various items of information :
- A personalized timeline summarizing the treatment steps and care activities
- Practical knowledge on the therapy
- Didactic video clips
- Description of possible side effects and recommendations
Comunicare collects many patients data, both physical and emotional parameters and symptoms, in order to help care givers prevent potential risk situations.
A dashboard is provided to the care givers in order to access and monitor the patient reported outcomes.
Patient's relatives (informal care givers) and other health professionals may also be involved in the treatment process. The mobile application is versatile and allows the patient to share some information with his entourage. Thanks to the national health hubs, other care providers may also access specific data shared by the patient.
The application adresses the monitoring of chronic diseases. The platform is enhanced with new pathologies as it is further developed.
Comunicare at the Digiself2018 Symposium in Bern
Comunicare, the digital « Care Companion » was present at the Digiself2018 Symposium held on February 8th 2018 in Bern (Switzerland).
During this symposium, various speakers underlined the importance of the digital tools such as Comunicare to enable patient reported outcomes in clinical follow-up and research, but also to improve patient implication and self-efficacy. Thanks to a better management of side effects and symptoms, these tools help to improve the quality of treatments and increase survival rates in cancer therapy.
