What is it about?
Cardiovascular diseases are in the top 3 of most important causes of death in the Netherlands. The numbers of 2017 are not known yet, but in 2016, 38.216 people (25,9%) of the 148.997 died because of this. CVRM focuses on delaying or preventing the (further) development of cardiovascular diseases. Technology can play an important role by supporting people in healthy behavior, making monitoring from home possible and developing new forms of care between de first line (general practitioner) and second line (hospital).
Marleen Hendriks will talk about the health gain that remote monitoring and advanced ‘nudging’ of patients can achieve. She works together with ahti on a mobile application to monitor the increased blood pressure of patients together with the general practitioner from home. She explains how ‘nudging’ can be applied as a motivation technique.
Sebastiaan Blok will talk about the latest technological developments in this area, but also about what the business model of CCN looks like. What is their position between general practitioners and hospitals?
