The architecture of the Viduet platform is perfectly suited to transmural care pathways. This allows easy referral of patients between primary and secondary care. Viduet helps you to set up the transmural care pathways of patients with COPD, as efficiently as possible. This way, all caregivers involved will have a better understanding of their patient’s health, and everyone can spend their time as efficiently as possible. See below our care modules for COPD that can be used in integrated care networks.

SmartCOPD, formerly known as EmmaCOPD, is a validated intervention that reduces hospitalization days of COPD patients 79%. This care module involves an implementation of SmartCOPD in which different healthcare providers within the region work together around the patient. The SmartCOPD intervention consists of a combination of the Digital Lung Attack Action Plan (DigiLAP) and the Activity Coach. SmartCOPD helps patients adopt optimal movement patterns and to independently recognize lung attacks and immediately take appropriate actions. The SmartCOPD regional care module is designed to help primary and secondary care collaborate and make referrals easier.
In 2018-2020, The Leiden University Medical Center conducted research on the effectiveness of SmartCOPD at patients who had two or more exacerbations with hospitalization per year prior to the study. The results of this study show statistically significant evidence that SmartCOPD reduces hospitalization days by 79% in this target group. The results were published in April 2021 in the Journal of Medical Internet Research (JMIR).
Through the SmartCOPD regional care module, Viduet enables hospitals, general practices, home care, physiotherapists, medical service centers and informal caregivers to work together around the patient. The architecture of the Viduet platform allows these kind of regional collaborations. The image below shows schematically, using the Viduet care rings model, how Viduet enables such collaborations.
Viduet makes it easy to appropriately involve each involved health care provider in the patient’s care pathway. First, all involved caregivers are easily added to the patient’s community. Then, with a single button-press in the personal care program, caregivers can prepare a complete care pathway, including the desired settings for handling signals, for a new patient. In this way, the patient’s care pathway can also be easily converted at any time. This allows patients who are referred between primary and secondary care to be easily transitioned to their new care pathway.
