  • Public health organization (Region)

Needs and objectives

Telemedecin Project:  The need for a computerized network for the clinical support-care and monitoring of patients in treatment of rheumatoid diseases; for their continuous monitoring, integrating among the objectives the improvement of communication between the stakeholders of the system (patients, nurses, rheumatologists).

Proposed Solution  

  • The software developed for the project allows patient registration by the specialist using touch technologies (tablet and/or totem touch-screen). From that moment on, every patient has the possibility to interact with the specialist center, all through a single platform through which are collected outcomes (pain, functional disability, disease activity as well as adherence to treatment); the same platform allows the sending of an automatic alert, in the way defined by a specific algorithm, to competent authorities.
  • In a subsequent step the platform will provide access to personal data by means of a card (RHEUMACARD) so that the patient, the General Practitioner (MMG – Medico di Medicina Generale)  and other specialists in rheumatology will be able to view the status of the patient with the variations in their condition over time.
  • The specific App will allow nurses to collect data during home visits with a tablet and  subsequently sync the data with the system.

Innovative Features

  • The project relies on web-based and mobile technologies to facilitate adoption, reduce costs and increase integration with technologies and existing devices. For each process stakeholder a dedicated service has been designed:
  • Patients → Remote access to the system via the web interface (PC/mobile), for telemonitoring
  • Nurses → tablet and specific app for mobile use (offline) during home visits
  • Doctors → local access via browser/mobile for the compilation of dossiers

Target Results

  • 140 patients enrolled, 500 forecast in 1 year (only on AR).
  • 20% reduction in outpatient visits and consequent increase in satisfaction for the patient (specifically relative to the reduction in travel) and economic savings for the National Health Service (SSN – Servizio Sanitario Nazionale).
  • Positive perception for the adoption of a system that is technologically advanced.
  • Improvement of doctor-patient communication.
