HealthSuite Digital Platform

Sep 21, 2015

Philips and Dutch Radboud University Medical Center introduced the first diabetes prototype app with integrated online community to empower patients and enhance continuity of care. The connected digital health prototype enables people living with diabetes and their health care providers to make more confident care decisions, while managing the complexity of diabetes self-care. The next generation virtual community connects consumers to healthcare providers and allows them to share both consumers’ personal health data and healthcare organization’s clinical data. Via the app, patients can track blood glucose levels, insulin use, nutrition, physical activity, mood and stress, and get data-driven feedback and coaching guidance, at home and on the go. The system, consisting of a patient app and online community, is the first to collect and connect data from electronic medical records, multiple personal health devices – including a wireless glucose meter or activity monitor – and patient self-reported data. The secure online community is where enrolled patients and healthcare professionals can interact via private messaging or shared posts within a healthcare organization’s clinical guidelines. In this way, patients can get feedback from their care team using the combined data and can easily share experiences with fellow patients, clinicians and caregivers. — DreamForce
