  69. 69. Gamification: a relevant trend forpatient services “I don’t always make note of my blood sugar values. But sometimes when I have issues, my doctor makes me do it. Then I have to fill in these huge cards with notes about what I ate, how much insulin I take… But it’s annoying cause people whine a lot about it. There are periods that I do a lot and when I don’t, my parents really Lara (14 y.o.) has been diagnosed with diabetes type I October 2nd 2006. make it hard on me.” Coping with the disease hasn‟t been easy for Lara. She realizes, she will have to deal with the disease for the rest of her life. Keeping track of glucose levels is boring
  70. 70. Gamification: proves tobe an effective trend!Patient insight:reminders and phone calls are just automatedversions of nagging parents. Bant (app) included a reward program.

  75. 75. Just 1 example,many more, so let‟s not go too fast!
  76. 76. Listening to whatthe patient needsApps for patients are only successful if they fill inan existing need of a patient & if they take intoaccount existing barriers(practical, emotional, physical…).Connecting with the patient in an ongoing wayis the key to success. Observe, get inspired & then act
  77. 77. Patients are engaged!But they are not similar!You need to observewhat they are doingYou need to engageWith the right patient! Need to engage!
  78. 78. You all remember Lara & for now in full pubertyShe was probably born with an iPhonein her hand Keeping track of glucose levels is boring
  79. 79. Meet Eddy. He is more criticalUsed to his way of keeping track of blood valuesfor years (written textbook) “Voor patiënten is dit ver van hun bed, het is misschien niet veel werk maar je moet het je wel eigen maken.”You stay or you move (no trial period)a tough decision “Ofwel ga je all the way ofwel blijf je bij wat je nu aan het doen bent. Ik wil toch mijn tijd nemen om dit af te wegen. Ik ga niet over 1 nacht ijs.”What‟s in it for me? Just doing the samewill not do the trick “Wat is mijn voordeel? Als het kan bewijzen dat het de Ha1bc waarden van patiënten van 75mmol/mol naar 53mmol/mol kan brengen, is dat voor mij wel overtuigend!” Not convinced of the added value of apps
  80. 80. Different barriers to overcomeDifferent motivations to useBut same end goal It is about coping with diabetes
  81. 81. ………………………………………..……..…CollaborationInvolve customers inEVERYTHING you do.………………………………………..……..… Structural partnerships
  82. 82. Structuralpartnership is the future
  83. 83. In case you had asugar dip , I‟mhere to help you outApps enable …the pharma industry to connect with patientsthe pharma industry to build a CSR imagethe pharma industry to connect 2 stakeholdersBUT success depends on theunderstanding of the patient. Patients chooseapps very carefully (cf. +- 12 apps in use!)based on their needs otherwise“the giveaway will become a throwaway”& don‟t forget to make it fun

  85. 85. What about them?
  86. 86. More apps & mobile contactmeansless offline contactless visitsless incomeAnother way to look at thephenomenon from a physicianpoint of view Are apps a threat for physician income?
  87. 87. Case telemonitoring by UZGent, Prof. Dr. Heidi BuysseTelemonitoring: digitally tracking of patient data (e.g. blood values, insulinintake…) that are afterwards transferred to & monitored by physicians timely (personalised) feedback by physician less transcription errors positive evaluation by patients & healthcare professionals! “RIZIV should provide a compensation for e-consulting” Case: telemonitoring (Dr. Buysse)

Apps can release the burden…
  89. 89. considered the other way around…A combination of face-2-face & mobile/onlinecontact with patients, enables the physician toenlarge his/her „patient base‟ and serve theneed of newly diagnosed patients. Apps can release the burden…
  90. 90. Fact: physicians have only alow awareness of the app offer “I’d consider my doctor to be quite innovative, she tells me about innovative technologies, how the future of a diabetic patient might look like. I think my doctor would recommend apps to me, but I think she just doesn’t know about them yet.” Lara, diabetic type I patient, 15 y.o. The industry needs to inform them ass well
  91. 91. Apps have a public dimensionBetter healthcare quality for a lowercost. Apps are relevant for national policies
  92. 92. e.g. UK government made a list of 500trustworthy applications Positive effect on social security costs
  93. 93. Patientorganisations“The impatient patient is a force for good, to beharnessed in support of sustainability of healthcare systems.” Alexandra Wyke, CEO, Patient View
  94. 94. Patient organisations:Numeric impact (membership – e.g. VDV 23.000)Credible source for patients (domain expert & nocommercial interest)Covering more than just specific medical conditionsIn touch with multiple stakeholders – well-networkedLobbying for the needs of the patient Patient organisations are a partner
  95. 95. Diabetes UK released iPhone app Diabetes UK on track!
  96. 96. In case you had asugar dip , I‟mhere to help youout1. Physicians, pharmacists, patient organisations believe in the added value of patient apps & technology2. On the condition that it does not intend to replace the role of health care professionals3. APPS need to be positioned as an extra SERVICE towards end- clients (the patients)
  97. 97. Don‟t forget to communicate toHCPs or patient organisations as well aboutpatient apps (you created)!It’s hard to love or promote something“you do not know yet.” Boost HCP conversation!
