Personal approach and common field of information for the whole treatment team will make the treatment plan activities more effective and the stages will be less fragmented between different specialists and stages. Each patient follows a unique treatment path. That’s why it is necessary to have a modular overview of different stages and a wholesome picture of the treatment, that consists of both medical and life support services. A properly functioning information field between different parties will decrease the costs for the state and burden of a patient, making the treatment path logical, easy to follow and enable the timely help needed for the patient.
During our experiment in Accelerate Estonia, we are collaborating with different parties of the treatment team. In the innovation of the treatment path and for the TheraSync digital journey it is critical that it is based on real life needs and cases. Our goal is to create an opportunity to use innovative technologies as part of the treatment process. To this end, we are mapping the preconditions, opportunities, needs and obstacles for the implementation of these technologies.
The patient’s treatment path is individual, but usually includes visits to various specialists in connection with the initiation of treatment, its monitoring and a gradual reduction. For example, a patient may visit a family doctor, family nurse, psychiatrist, or psychologist. He or she may also need help from a social service provider. It is important to adapt the platform to the needs of the individual, showing a wholesome picture of the possible help and treatment team members.
Our goal is to create a new reality where the patient’s treatment path is smooth and coordinated and the necessary assistance is provided at the right time. All in all, everyone benefits from a common platform: the patient, who is not left alone with the problem and receives the necessary treatment on time; professionals who can do their job effectively and make the right treatment decisions; and the state, because timely treatment saves subsequent additional treatment costs but also enabling the blooming of healthier and happier population.
