Digital collection of paediatric patient reported outcomes and experiences of healthcare Har passerat

Föreläsare: John Chaplin, Peter Adolfsson

Spår: Framtidens omsorg och vård

Video consultations, medical data collected via smartphones, wearable devices, remote monitoring tools, and digital therapeutics, are emerging technologies that have seen unexpected increase in growth in healthcare over the past 18 months. Digital technologies are being applied across all areas of health and wellness and contributing to the mutual communication between healthcare professionals and children in care building a mutual therapeutic partnership. This is true in paediatric case as well as elsewhere. However, in paediatric care the introduction of these technologies may prove particularly useful in populations where communication or understanding are limited. 

The Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement System (PROMIS) is transforming the way individuals manage their health and interact with their healthcare providers. Computer Adapted Testing (CAT) has been developed to the side of healthcare and has in the past struggled to be implemented widely. However, the past 18 months has seen a sweeping aside of prejudices and doubts and witnessed a willingness to embrace and test remote health data collection systems within the care continuum in order to improve access and outcomes. We are on the threshold of greater integration of virtual health in mainstream care. In this presentation I will explore some of the innovations leading towards greater health equality in paediatric patient care through technology and the opportunities it offers for further development. 

In this symposium we will look at understanding the child patient experience through different electronic modalities.

Participants will:

  • Become familiar with the latest innovations, 
  • Learn about the tools and technologies that will engage individuals in their health and wellness, 
  • Learn how to enable a person centred care approach 
  • Gain insight into the challenges that must be overcome in order to achieve widespread adoption of virtual health in paediatric care
