Patient support programme - United-Digitals

Patient Support Programmes (PSPs) involve direct interaction with patients, carers or HCPs. Their purpose is to support patient care by supplementing and reinforcing care and guidance provided by the patient’s HCP. Digital media, like Mobile Apps, Websites, VR and AR, Social Media, Wearables, Smart software and hardware, are increasingly used. While Patient Support Adherence Programmes are designed to use multiple methods of interaction and digital media which fits better with patient lifestyles and assist improving compliance, Patient Support Disease Education Programmes help patients understand their condition and provide advice on managing disease.

Factors which may contribute to non-adherence (intentional or unintentional) include: 

  • Forgetfulness
  • Confusion due to a complex treatment regiment
  • Struggle with self administration
  • Cost
  • Side effects
  • No perceived benefit

Interactions to minimise unintentional non-adherence may include: 

  • Patient education including digital channels 
  • Assistance with administering medication - home care programmes incl. digital solutions 
  • Reminders via SMS text messaging or smartphone mobile and web applications

virtual reality 

Virtual Reality as part of Patient Support Programmes. 

By using VR technology as part of Patient and Customer Support Programmes, patients and physicians can be immersed within a totally new environment. Patients can interact with non accessible structures and experience unique sensations explaining in detail and changing their perception of disease and mechanisms of therapeutic options. This in return can improve mutual communication, motivation, adherence and much more.

Benefits of Augmented Reality in Patient Support Programmes. 

Patients supported by Augmented Reality technology benefit from immediate access to educational and safety information. By simply scanning a marker (a medication pack for example), they can discover beneficial details in the form of visual data imagery that are not visible to us normally. Always up-to-date Patient Information Leaflets, educational videos, quality of life improvement suggestions and exercises are just basic examples of the supporting AR content.
