The smartphone APP is the central communication tool of the patient. It is used to record self-measurement values such as body weight, blood sugar, blood pressure or heart rate and transmit the values to the data centre or care network. In accordance with the closed-loop healthcare principle, the attending physician or nursing staff can transmit feedback and recommendations to the patient. The data is transmitted between caregivers and patients in encrypted form; an ID card is used to secure the smartphone for the patient.
Simple operation and high data security
The patient can record, annotate, document symptomatic data, ask questions and write comments in free text form via app supported by a workflow or according to a freely defined procedure. For an automatic and convenient data acquisition process, the app uses Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.
To use the app, a personal ID card (RFID card) or an individual PIN can be specified for unlocking.
All recorded data is encrypted and synchronized with the platform in the background. New feedback messages are loaded as soon as they have been approved by a physician. Reports are automatically generated periodically to provide patients with an overview of their condition and behavior. Patients are informed about new messages as soon as they are available. As soon as the patient has read the messages, the telemonitoring system is informed (read confirmation).
By using the app in conjunction with tbm core, the attending physician can be provided with the most up-to-date view of his patients. The physician in turn has the possibility to contact his patients safely and securely without having to be on site.
