The world is evolving and we are seeing more patients like David. People are getting older, continuing to live independently for longer and require different care. This, of course, increases the responsibility of the general practitioners, as they are the first point of contact for this ever-increasing group of people in need of care. They are ultimately at the center of a fragmented care and therefore the fragmented patient.
In order to provide every patient in the world with the healthcare they are entitled to, we have to be smart and use the available capacity of healthcare to employ technology effectively. We create technology to connect healthcare services and provide GPs the tools to make the most out of their valuable time.
On one hand, we connect systems which lowers the pressure on administration, makes it easier to transfer data, arranges finances efficiently and gains insight into business operations. On the other hand, we connect people. Professionals with professionals, patients with patients and patients with professionals. This way we accumulate knowledge, expertise and vital information to help provide more effective care. In addition, we do not limit our solutions to only the general practitioner. It is precisely the connection between all healthcare providers and of course the patient, which is of utmost importance to us.
David can easily record his own blood levels, which means he does not have to go to the doctor to have it done. His GP can use the consultations much more efficiently and specialists can make an important contribution with the use of one app. This way, everyone saves valuable time and David gets exactly the care he needs. Furthermore, David can digitally connect with other diabetics to share his experiences and learn from others. He can play an important role in his own care process.
Connection does not stop at healthcare for individual patients. In fact, it can mean so much more. Smart technology turns abstract loose data into valuable information. Through reports, GPs gain insight into the population and the healthcare provided. They can identify trends and developments in their patient portfolio, they can identify their sub-populations and create opportunities for valuable preventive care on a large scale.
For example, is there an excessively high number of vulnerable elderly people in a specific neighborhood? Then you as a GP can focus on this problem together with the district nurse and the elderly care specialist. In addition, a GP can could also look at the need for a hospice within this town or neighborhood.
We believe in a healthcare system where important information is easily and responsibly shared, professionals and patients are connected and patients have an active role in their own care process. A system which allows us to get the most out of our time and does not just want the best care for patients, but actually provides the best care to patients.
