DEARhealth in a Nutshell
Clinical knowledge continues to grow exponentially. An increasing number of data points must be weighed when deciding how to best manage the care of patients. We help doctors and nurses by providing clinical decision support in the form of recommended care pathways (a set timeline e.g. 12 months of planned care activities) based on patient and disease characteristics monitored continuously throughout a patient’s care. This allows doctors and nurses to proactively weigh these data and avoid adverse health outcomes like hospitalizations, rather than act reactively after the fact. Especially for chronic diseases, where patients must live with ongoing health risks, we help mitigate those risks by improving experiences and outcomes based on the latest clinical expertise.
Our DEARhealth concept of clinical decision support has already proven its value to healthcare systems in the US. In 2020 we went live in the first hospital in the Netherlands. Many more are waiting to follow.
