What is HOPE?
Can smart collected, stored, processed and shared information teach us how to limit the spread of COVID-19, reduce the risk of blindness among children born preterm, result in more successful knee replacement surgeries and improve treatment results among psoriasis and migraine patients?
The examples are many. And the answer is yes.
HOPE – enabling intelligent collection, storage, process and exchange of information between patients, research, healthcare, life science industry and employers from a single platform
Even though we are living in an increasingly digitized world, there is still a lot that can be done to simplify communication and the exchange of knowledge and information. Not least in research, healthcare and selfcare.
At ADDI Medical we have developed a platform that – in line with the laws in force – allows safe, intelligent and interactive access to information by patients, healthcare providers, research initiatives, pharmaceutical companies and employers. All in real time working in the same HOPE platform.
HOPE allows our customers to configure their own smart and user-friendly forms and activities that increase patient participation and engagement. We currently offer various quick-to-configure solutions for home-based screening and direct feedback of information, collected values, consents and reminders, via the web and mobile devices.
Solutions that result not only in a better basis for making decisions and in saving time and costs for research and healthcare, but also in more patient-centered care and for improved treatment results. This gives the patient a complete overview and full control over what is to be done and also of all self-generated information.
As the technology behind the HOPE Platform is based on code developed by us that manages dynamically produced algorithms and automated rule-based forms, activities and activity plans configured by the customer themselves based on the customer’s specific needs, the technology can be rapidly adapted for use within all kinds of studies and areas of care, and on all digital devices (computers, smartphones and tablets). The platform allows the customer to subsequently adapt the content in HOPE themselves, i.e. the customer’s configuration changes require only limited input from ADDI Medical and its developers.
If you are interested in finding out what we can do to facilitate your needs for intelligent solutions, please be sure to contact us.
HOPE/Corona – digitized research protocol combined with COVID-19 virus and antibody tests, aimed at understanding how to limit the spread of COVID-19
The benefit of HOPE/Corona is the solution’s ability to collect, process and display information that in turn provides knowledge of how the spread of infection can be limited. Information is gathered in different ways – via other systems (lab results), the patient/participant, researchers, the healthcare sector and employers – on various technical devices. The platform provides the researchers with a complete overview and full control over the rate at which information is collected and of which information has been collected in real time. The HOPE Corona solution ensures that data is always used in accordance with the law, securely, responsibly, and considerately.
In the HOPE/Corona project we are partnering with Karolinska Institutet and KTH Royal Institute of Technology to produce, systematize and digitize protocols for the collection of information and implementation of COVID-19 virus and antibody tests via which various currently ongoing clinical studies into COVID-19 are gathering their results. The purpose of the project is to reduce the spread of COVID-19 infection, with the aim of providing patients/participants with results of COVID-19 virus and antibody tests while at the same time increasing understanding of the pandemic.
HOPE/Migränhjälpen – platform for virtual care provider that aims for high participation and better treatment results among its patients
1.4 million Swedes suffer from migraines, and only 1–5% of the approximately 200,000 patients with chronic migraine receive the treatment they should. One major problem is that there is a real shortage of neurology specialists in Sweden, contributing to inadequacies in migraine care that results in a loss of production in Sweden equivalent to 9,500 full-time positions. This problem is the reason for the world’s first digital migraine clinic – Migränhjälpen. Migränhjälpen chose the Hope Platform from ADDI Medical for its system support, including operation and support for online diagnosis and treatment as well as follow-up of care received by migraine patients, and to support the digital workflow between patient, doctor and admin personnel.
HOPE/DigiROP and HOPE/ParentROP – digitized screening protocol and exchange of information reduce the risk of serious eye disease in infants born preterm
Together with Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg and the Eye Clinic at Queen Silvia Children’s Hospital in the same city, we recently produced HOPE/DigiROP – providing digital, evidence-based, best-practice decision support for screening and treatment of children born preterm who have a risk of the eye disorder retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). A solution that by calculating individual risk prediction can not only reduce the risk of blindness, but also free up time and resources – since the data collection previously carried out using pen and paper can be rapidly shared between parents, healthcare personnel and clinics.
We are also working to implement HOPE/ParentROP, a solution that facilitates the exchange of information and consents between healthcare personnel and parents concerning the investigations, meetings, medicines and transport needed as part of the care of infants born preterm. The benefit of HOPE/DigiROP and HOPE/ParentROP is evaluated continuously and indicates considerable time savings, among other things – particularly by reducing the administrative burden in healthcare, since what has already been documented in HOPE/DigiROP does not need to be documented again in the patient records system and quality register.
HOPE/Psoriasis Home – e-health solution for increased participation and better treatment results
HOPE/Psoriasis Home is a project that aims to simplify follow-up of symptoms and treatment effects in patients with psoriasis. In collaboration with pharmaceuticals company AbbVie and the healthcare sector, we are currently developing a mobile service that will give patients better control over their illness and life situation by allowing self-monitoring – with direct feedback from the healthcare sector.
The benefit of HOPE/Psoriasis Home is evaluated continuously and indicates significant time savings through the patient being more actively involved in their own care and treatment. The patient has a complete overview and full control over their patient plan and what they must do when, along with which data they are sharing with the healthcare sector.
HOPE/Less is more – digitized research protocol aimed at reducing the amount of blood taken for tests from extremely preterm infants
In the HOPE/Less is more project we have collaborated with researchers at the Sahlgrenska Academy to produce, systematize and digitize protocols for a multi-center clinical study currently in progress involving extremely preterm infants. The purpose of the project is to reduce the amount of blood currently required to be taken for various tests, with the aim of reducing sickness and preserving factors essential for the child’s normal development. The benefit of HOPE/Less is more is the solution’s capacity to show information in different ways in different technical environments, and also that it provides researchers with a complete overview and full control over the rate at which data is collected and over which data is collected. The Less is more solution ensures that data is always used in accordance with the law, securely, responsibly, and considerately.
HOPE/Min operation – the right information at the right time means more successful knee replacement surgeries
The success of knee replacement surgery is closely correlated to the information that patients need to receive and the measures that they must take before surgery can go ahead. In the Swedish region of Halland we are currently carrying out a project in partnership with the orthopedic department at Halland Hospital that aims to increase the number of successful knee replacement surgeries by ensuring that the patients to be operated on receive the right information at the right time, through the app HOPE/Min operation. The benefit of HOPE/Min operation is evaluated continuously and it is expected to contribute to demand management in healthcare, i.e. to support Halland Hospital’s ambition to give priority to those patients that have the greatest need.
HOPE/Min Hälsa – reducing child obesity by getting the patient actively involved
Research shows that being obese early in life shortens average life expectancy by up to 13 years. In the Swedish region of Halland, we are also currently carrying out a collaborative project with the Pediatric Department at Halland Hospital (Child Obesity) that aims to reduce the increased incidence of obesity observed over the past 25 years. This is being done by: a) getting the patient more actively involved in their own care and treatment; b) offering decision support that allows the healthcare sector to manage demand based on a large volume of data generated by the patient themselves; c) giving the patient and healthcare services a complete overview and full control – so that both good and undesirable results are noticed “in time”. The benefit of HOPE/Min hälsa is evaluated continuously and it is expected to contribute to time savings, support demand management in healthcare and improve treatment results.
