RSD's program includes two types of patients. The first group consists of disadvantaged patients with a limited ability for self care. They have to inform all the involved care providers with details about their illness. With the new platform, the care providers are automatically informed with relevant details. The second patient group consists of patients with the ability for self care. They are active and interested in taking responsibility for their illness, but until recently they did not have the right tools. Now they have the possibility to gain insight into their treatment and, together with their care team, achieve the full overview of their situation.New insights with analytics technology The initial installation is underway at Svendborg Hospital and uses large volumes of information from the clinical setting, analyzes that data and provides critical insight to physicians, nurses and other caregivers. The new technology provides a single point of entry for patients and healthcare providers to coordinate care. "Every individual is impacted by their health, social and environmental needs. To truly treat each patient as an individual, and provide the most comprehensive care, analytics technology today is being used in new ways to give us bold new insight," said Henrik Wieland, IBM Healthcare Industry Leader for Denmark. "With this kind of perspective and coordination among caregivers, this approach to delivering Smarter Care will drive profoundly better health outcomes for patients." Inspiration from DiaLog RSD's program is based on an existing engagement with IBM called DiaLog, a web-based solution for diabetes patients and their caregivers. About 20 percent of the diabetes patients in RSD use DiaLog to register and monitor their readings. The tool offers a complete overview to all relevant healthcare workers. The patients experience fewer complications and RSD attains an annual savings of 75 million Danish kroners.
