How to provide personalized healthcare solutions? How to adapt health needs at a distance? Through inspiring examples and conferences, the 9th edition of Digital Health Connect will give the floor to entrepreneurs, industrialists, researchers and healthcare professionals who are revolutionizing remote medicine. Among them, Yves Nordmann, founder of the docdok.health platform that is revolutionizing the way healthcare is delivered to patients.
Strengthening the patient-doctor relationship
What is Docdok? It is actually a healthcare communication platform designed to strengthen the traditional patient-doctor relationship. The platform integrates with the software used by doctors and the medical devices used by patients. Docdok facilitates the collection of quality assessments, the conduct of clinical trials and the design and delivery of digital therapies.
The platform’s core mission is to enable value-based healthcare as a global leader in capturing, understanding and improving real-world patient outcomes in the clinical and study ecosystem at lower cost.
In terms of technology, the IT team focuses on agile development using state-of-the-art frameworks and technologies. The team includes experts in the areas of human-centered design, data architecture, big data analytics, and cybersecurity. Security is essential for a solution dealing with sensitive medical data. Docdok.health adheres to GDPR and hosting is provided in certified national data centers.
The platform at the service of the health system
Docdok is used for direct interaction between asthma/COPD and COVID-19 patients and their healthcare providers, enabling disease education, symptom monitoring and patient coaching in a clinical setting. The projects are under scientific oversight. The interactive elements of docdok provide added value to surgeons and patients, as they can better visualize the healing process.
Several hospitals and university clinics in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the Middle East have chosen docdok to improve communication with their patients before, during and after hospitalization/consultation. Disease management programs, as well as quality assessments, are conducted using docdok. Two of docdok.health’s partners, the University Hospital of Zurich and the Sheba Medical Center in Israel, are among the “Top 10 Hospitals in the World” according to Newsweek 2020.
The birth of docdok.health
Docdok.health was founded by a physician and a pharmaceutical industry executive who were frustrated with the inefficiency of their respective systems. By proving that it was addressing a fundamental problem in healthcare, docdok.health has created an impressive following in a short period of time. Its customers include renowned international companies such as T-Systems, AstraZeneca, Novartis, NovoNordisk and IBM, as well as several university hospitals, private practices and thousands of patients – earning it a ranking as one of the top digital healthcare start-ups by the Vienna Health Hub, Sheba ARC and PLAYBeyondBio. Docdok.health is already active in six countries.
