Digital communication between doctors and their patients (Smart Services World I technology programme)

The goal of "MACSS" is to improve the safety of patients and the quality of life of chronically ill patients. This is to be made possible by establishing more efficient ways of communication, firstly between physicians and patients, and secondly, between treating physicians. As part of the project, chronically ill patients visit a care centre several times a year, where the right therapy for them is determined. An app which records comprehensive vital bodily signs of patients is connected to the care centre via a secure interface and provides doctors with information on the state of health of their patients between ward rounds. The general practitioner, who treats patients between routine visits, and the doctors at the care centre also exchange data in order to bundle the information and, if necessary, make prompt changes to the therapy.
