How to transform patient engagement with value based care using DigitalTherapeutics(DTx)?

Transforming patient engagement and value based care with DTx

The traditional fee-for-service model of healthcare is an inherently defective one because it leads to a conflict of interest between different stakeholders as it focuses on volume rather than quality of healthcare service. Many countries across the world are now slowly but steadily transitioning from this model to value-based care, where reimbursement to providers is contingent upon measurable clinical outcomes. As patients come centre stage in value-based care and providers become more accountable for the wellness of their patient populations, DTx shows promise by empowering patients. Digital therapeutics can thus be an effective tool for value-based care by leveraging the patient’s healthcare data to augment traditional clinical therapies with actionable intelligence provided to patients and physicians in real time for a more strategic and personalized care.

Digital disease management program – A responsive approach to manage chronic diseases during a pandemic

Disease Management Programmes

With the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic that spread globally at an accelerated pace, healthcare resources at all levels were shifted away from the management and prevention of chronic diseases to contain the outbreak. Prolonged lock-downs have led to reduced access to healthcare, a sudden drop in the referrals to physicians, and a reduction in the hospitalization of patients for treatment of conditions other than the COVID-19 infection. Reports suggest a partial or complete disruption of services for chronic patients across many countries worldwide. Options for community-based support and care for such patients are limited, thereby leading to a serious concern about the effect of the pandemic on the long-term clinical outcomes of patients with chronic diseases.
