Doctors and nurses are gaining valuable experience through home measurement and video calling in numerous locations across the Netherlands. They are learning something new every day; how to introduce digital care to patients, how to make video calls, when to adjust thresholds. How useful would it be to bring all those caregivers together and learn from each other’s knowledge during a Sharing Session?
“Very useful”, says a nurse from Dijklander Hospital. Pulmonologist, Erik Kapteijns, begins the afternoon with his lessons learnt from 1.5 years of telemonitoring COPD patients. For example, it was not a good idea to start during flu season due to the increased workload. But since then, the results achieved have been really impressive. One quarter fewer admissions of the research population! The upscaling is therefore in full swing.
Sharing Tables exchanges tips and tricks about inclusion, the monitoring protocol and, of course, the expansion from a few patients to larger populations. Knowledge is multiplied by sharing experiences!
On behalf of Luscii, Daan Dohmen offered a sneak peek of upcoming developments. Luscii’s vision was received with wide eyes and enthusiastic nods. We make the magic of healthcare innovation possible with a little technological help, but mainly thanks to the smart collaboration between pioneering healthcare providers.
Were you unable to attend? No worries! Later this year, we will organise yet another Sharing Session. Whether another magician will be present, we will keep under wraps…for now.
