Digital therapeutics.

How ITK developed a personalized, app-based assistance system.

Treatments tailored to the individual have the potential to mitigate suffering and enhance the patient’s quality of life. This app-based assistance system taps a treasure-trove of disease-related data collected in the course of the patient’s day-to-day life. Caregivers and relatives can also contribute their observations to this data pool. The valuable insights provided, assist the treating physicians or therapists in developing a more personalized treatment method. The app also benefits the patient by affording instant access to tips and first-aid measures.

Image module

Our solution:

  • Work together with patients, therapists, and research and industry partners to develop user-centric applications, that factor in the need for personal privacy in a bid to boost transparency and acceptance
  • Drive the cross-platform development of mobile and web medical apps for patients, caregivers, relatives and therapists
  • Develop the backend with security and data privacy demands in mind
  • Develop algorithms and cognitive models, to eventually help forecast relapses
  • Connect medical devices and fitness wearables

We were able to fast-track development with standards-compliant digital health building blocks. A clinical trial is underway at Stuttgart Hospital to test this app-based assistance system.
