As such, our experience welcomes patients already at home, providing them with all kind of information about their upcoming visit and procedure. All presented by visual and interactive means, such as photos and videos of the hospital, and 3D animations of the procedure. The patient digests the information in his own comfort zone, at his own pace.

At the same time we collect the essential informed consent, medical condition, and other patient specific information for the hospital. Together with all stakeholders we align the exact information need per procedure, for both patients and hospital.

All responses are presented in intuitive patient specific and aggregated dashboards, with the right automatic annotations (e.g. pre-anamnesis / risk assessment) in order to act adequately.

As 10-20% of the patient experience is determined by after care, our software automatically follows up on patients with after care information, PROMS/PREMS and other evaluation questionnaires over time.

We provide in a complete toolset (including SSO, HL-7 and deeplink integrations) that optimises healthcare processes while maximising the patient experience.
