HOPE Obesity is intended to facilitate treatment and communication with children and young people diagnosed with obesity. HOPE App offers the patient a scheduled activity plan for treatment adapted to their individual needs.
HOPE Platform is largely based on the digital treatment method at the child and adolescent medical facility at Region Halland hospitals and at the Obesity Centre, Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Västra Götaland Region. The new method seeks to motivate the patient to change their behaviour and lifestyle. Parents can also be given access to the activity plan fr the child to the extent the child wants.
In the diagnostic field, many of the actors in healthcare and society also work closely together when the lifestyle of a patient needs to change. Using HOPE Platform facilitates a transition from more traditional isolated and irregular check-up visits to a safer, more stable and continuous contact for the patient with everyone involved.
As treatment takes place remotely, children and adolescents can be admitted from a number of geographical areas within Region Halland and Region Västra Götaland. This also includes children and young people who have not previously been admitted in the traditional care setting.
