Medicine Men has been building self-care solutions with a focus on patients with a chronic illness for many years. Since some time, we focus on the expansion of the Emma platform, in which patients manage their disease and share their own data with their relatives and healthcare professionals. By linking heterogeneous medical devices, including blood pressure monitors, and adding versatile questionnaire options for healthcare professionals, our platform has become extremely useful to increase the self-management of patients and facilitate remote healthcare.
|Areas of expertise||
Over the years, we have developed multiple areas of expertise:

At this moment, we provide a service called EmmaHBPM, which allows patients to measure their blood pressure in a validated way at home and to share the results with their healthcare professionals. This is one of the applications of our Emma platform and is used by healthcare professionals to remotely diagnose people with hypertension, set the medication at hypertension patients, or to monitor them. EmmaHBPM.is already on the market, and is already reimbursed by the Dutch healthcare securers, which gives an indication of its TRL. This service is unique, because it is based on a protocol in which patients measure their blood pressure only on a number of fixed times during a week at home, while it is also completely validated according to the European hypertension guidelines.Besides this description of how EmmaHBPM is currently used, it could also be used for prevention purposes. Furthermore our platform has shown to be successful in reducing the hospitalization days of COPD patients (74%), by combining the Activity Coach application in combination with the digital application of the lung attack action plan. This shows that our platform can be used for many more purposes, like coaching or personal decision support.
|Areas of cooperation sought||
We are looking for partners who believe in our platform and who can help to either scale it, develop it further or link it with other systems that healthcare professionals use in the for this tender relevant countries.
