Customer Snapshot: Success Strategy
With growing longevity comes new health challenges for millions of people who live with chronic medical conditions. In fact, soaring levels of chronic illnesses are the leading cause of deaths, and represent one of the greatest social, economic and political transformations of our time.
The lifestyle disease that could be prevented.
We can’t wait for the diagnosis.
Called Accu-ChekView, Roche’s new package combines a blood glucose monitor, a wearable fitness tracker, and an App developed by SAP that are integrated together. Specifically targeted to meet the individual needs of patients and doctors, now a patient’s vital signs and blood sugar level can be watched in relation to their physical activity level, in real-time. The doctor can monitor the patient remotely, and the patient can communicate with the doctor’s office.
What makes this unique.
The Doctor in the Palm of Your Hand
In order to perform such seeming magic, it was critical to have the right solution for this program. Using SAP Connected Health on the SAP Cloud Platform, all the needed data is securely gathered, stored and processed—giving the doctor and patient access to immediate information and feedback.
Connected to the doctor all the time.
Better Business: Benefits
Connecting closely with the doctor like this creates a stronger relationship, having a psychological effect that is supportive and empowering for patients. For instance, little mistakes and slip-ups in lifestyle can be caught quickly because the app will red flag the issue, and the doctor and patient can work on solutions together. If a patient is not being active enough, the app is a good support tool to motivate them to get back on track.
The doctor is watching…
Prediabetic people can now conceivably reverse symptoms and live a normal, healthy life. And doctors are now learning more about what causes chronic illnesses much faster, with this “bird’s eye view” of a patient’s life in action.
These powerful new innovations in connected care are promising to allow doctors to get deeper with their patients’ personal treatment plans, and change the way doctors treat patients in multitudes of ways. Saving lives and curing diseases can be their focus, one individual patient at a time.
Changing the way doctors treat patients.
