Ecosystem development for integrated disease management
The Do CHANGE project develops a health ecosystem for integrated disease management for hypertensive and cardiac patients. This system - adaptable for other health and social issues – gives people access to a set of personalised health services that directly respond to a range of measurements and situations. It integrates the latest behaviour change techniques with inputs from new portable tools that scan food and fluid intake, monitor behaviours and measure clinical parameters in normal living situations.
The Do CHANGE approach dynamically integrates behaviour change with gathering of real-time sensor data, physiological and symptomatic patient data, and healthcare professional’s inputs. The patient thus has a greater degree of self-management of his condition. The use of behavioural prompts (DO’s) puts an emphasis on actionable feedback given in a timely manner, improving lifestyle and change of everyday habits. The Do CHANGE approach will implement Do Something Different habit breaking techniques with innovative mHealth tools.
