Clinicards. The end of medical apps as we know it.

Introducing the next innovation in Mobile Health. Think of it as your own medical app factory, churning out your own medical apps tailored to the needs of the patient. Safe and secure in use, providing unprecedented insights into patient’s health status.

Each medical app is different. Because each patient is.

Patient Generated Data

The quality of the patient’s medical story lies at core of a reliable diagnosis. It also presents enormous challenges. Any healthcare professional will confirm that patients find it difficult to tell their medical story in detail, or objectively. Medical apps could help out, but there’s a catch.

Health is personal, so tracking a patient’s health with mobile apps should be too. Then why is it so hard to find that one specific app that tracks exactly what you want to track, in an easily understandable way – no more, no less? And how do patients know what happens to their data once they’ve sent it to the cloud? Is it safe and secure, does it use the same security protocols as hospitals? And finally: tracking is nice, but what do all those numbers actually tell patients something about their health?

These days, it seems that the ‘empowered patient’ is all the healthcare community can talk about. The place to start empowering patients is by making their health understandable, by enabling them to tell their own medical story.

A staggering 90% of chronic patients would accept­a mobile app prescribed by their doctor. However, doctors are facing the same challenges. They would like to see more guidance and a more scientific approach to these apps. To be sure that the app they prescribe will actually make a difference in keeping or making their patients healthy.

The challenge with current medical apps

clinicards_overview

Unclear story

Patients are hardly able to tell their complete medical story.

Confused

Patients get confused about the vast amount of data apps usually generate.

Inflexibility

No flexibility in ‘prescribing’ apps that are specifically tailored to the medical needs of the patient.

Distrust

Insufficient trust in medical apps (security and privacy), and hardly any quality marks.

Bad design

Many medical apps lack vision in design and user interaction.

How do Clinicards work?

Using it in a hospital setting involves three simple steps. Let’s assume you are a cardiologist.

Personalize

The doctor and patient jointly select the Clinicards that capture an ECG and the activity level. In addition, the patient is asked to keep a digital diary with events that may affect heart rhythm, and a questionnaire such as the CHA2DS2–VASc score.

Track

The patient wears the corresponding sensor(s) and collects clinical data for a certain period of time (days, weeks, months). The diary entries are timestamped, so they can later be visualized next to the sensor recordings on a timeline.

Understand

The doctor and patient analyze the ECG-recording and interpret the factors that may cause irregularities in ECG-shape or heart rhythm disorders. This insight allows them to discuss adjustments in lifestyle and finetune therapeutic interventions.
