uMotif

 

The tool developed by London-based uMotif enables patients suffering from serious, long-term illness to monitor their own condition and also gives them exercises to do, reducing much of the to-and-fro between doctor and patient.

 

Patients suffering from chronic medical conditions such as diabetes and Parkinson’s disease need to have key data monitored on a daily basis as their treatment goes forward. Even the most clued-up patients are of course not doctors, and when they are suffering from an illness that requires constant monitoring, they very often need to contact their general practitioner, whether to signal an acute problem, just for a check-up, or simply because not having a good overview of their own condition makes them anxious. Starting from this point, the uMotif team, who presented their platform at the Health 2.0 conference held in London on 17-19 November, set out to bring the patient in earlier into what uMotif co-founder and CEO Bruce Hellman calls an “interoperable digital health system”. The uMotif app allows patients to build themselves a support structure. They can incorporate their own information in conjunction with their doctor and will receive advice and exercise guidance in line with their symptoms and quality of life going forward.

 

Patients basically put together their own app from building blocks, pre-existing modules. They can for example monitor sleep quality, blood pressure, glucose levels, track physical activity and also their body weight, using the wireless scales provided. The app sets out on the one hand to make the patient aware of his/her state of health, and on the other to enable the doctor to see the medical data in context. . Lastly, depending on the information supplied by the patient, the app can remind patients to take their medicine, or of appointments with the doctor, as it is known that around 50% of all patients forget to follow their treatment properly.
