Clinicards is the digital healthcare platform to help patients
monitor, inform and coach.

Short & Fit

Rehabilitation after leg amputation.

Led by the UMCG, a consortium of healthcare partners has the ambition to make leg amputation patients, and users of leg prostheses more mobile, better informed and therefore – literally – and figuratively – more powerful. A platform (Kort&Fit) has been set up with Clinicards with the aim of giving this target group and the caregivers more tools that promote self-management, autonomy and self-reliance, thus contributing to the quality of life. Clinicards allow patients to track pain scores and mood, measure (adjusted) BMI, see trends in activity (steps) and exercise, and store data on prosthesis, among other things. A questionnaire also focuses on the caregiver. Data can be shared at various stages of the post-operative journey with various healthcare providers around the country including rehabilitation physicians and orthopedic instrument makers. Depending on the relevant care pathway, the patient receives the right information at the right times throughout the pathway.

For health care providers, Short&Fit means that the patient is better informed, can act earlier on certain problems and comes to the consultation less for minor issues. Because of its monitoring feature, the app allows for a better understanding of how the patient is doing in the home environment. This also allows earlier (preventive) contact.

Understanding recovery after hand/wrist surgery.

With Clinicards, a package of measurement instruments was developed to arrive at objective measurements about the course of recovery after hand/wrist surgery. At the center of the developed solution is a high degree of patient self-direction and self-care; the patient decides which care pathway he/she is in and receives associated information at the right time in the care pathway. Through questionnaires (PRWHE, MHQ) at regular intervals, insight is gained about the progress of recovery.

It is also experimenting with a high-end glove full of sensors to objectively measure Range of Motion. These measurements are also taken by the patient. All data are made readily available for the outpatient consultation with the physician. Of course, data and developments thereof can also be viewed by the patient himself.

Clinicards in bariatric aftercare

At OLVG, Clinicards was used in bariatric surgery for a clinical study to demonstrate the extent to which remote care would increase patients’ sense of safety. After a day’s admission, patients are sent home with Clinicards and a linked sensor for measuring vitals. Over the course of a week, patients were contacted at home via Clinicards by an inpatient physician at the hospital to discuss results via image calling. Results show significant improvement in feelings of safety (publication follows).

A second study has begun that will examine the extent to which the patient can actually go home earlier.
