Purpose and goal

Needs analyses with end-users has verified and strengthened the project idea - a digital platform for person-centred, high quality and equitable transplant care, which provides education and support for patients, relatives, living donors and professionals. Market analysis shows great potential for upscaling both nationally and internationally, as well as to other therapeutic areas where patient self-management is important for patient outcomes and quality of life. The project has created a strong consortium of partners from Government, industry and academia.

Expected results and effects

The solution should provide equal conditions for access to evidence-based knowledge and nationally harmonized guidelines regarding patient information and training of professionals. Today, differences in guidelines creates questions and concerns of patients and relatives. The solution is estimated to give opportunities for a paradigm shift in transplantation care and patient education with transition to patient self-management. Improved patient information and decision support are expected to increase patient safety and reduce outpatient care consumption by up to 25%.

Planned approach and implementation

The project´s concept scetch of the platform is based on transplant healthcare experience and evidence-based training materials and knowledge of needs analyses with end-users. The patient information is a national knowledge base and shall be developed in consensus between transplant units. The platform should be mobile reachable via the 1177 Vårdguiden e-services for authentication via bank-ID. The solution is to make use of the national infrastructure as VINNOVA project HIP.se built up for the exchange of information between applications and healthcare information sources.
