Health care costs will continue to rise. To sustain high levels of health care, innovative ways of promoting health and curing disease will have to be found.
One driver of higher health care costs is sub-optimal health behavior by the general public and patients. There are many types of sub-optimal behavior, ranging from unhealthy eating, not enough exercise and therapy adherence. This costs billions of euros a year in increased health care costs.
In addition, it causes sub-optimal treatment outcome as well as a lower quality of life.
For instance, sub-optimal therapy adherence in chronic leukemia patients costs €5,000 per patient per year.
Behavioral, lifestyle support with eHealth is one way to reduce these costs,
But healthy behavior, including therapy adherence, is hard for many patients. Not only is it hard for them, designing programs to empower health behavior is also hard. More than 200 variables have been shown to potentiaal impact therapy adherence, for instance.
Utilizing our People First Design method Futurience SHINE developed a program (app) supporting chronic leukemia patients in their daily struggle with issues resuylting from the disease and the treatment. The program improved quality of life overall, and caused 80% of patients with sub-optimal therapy adherence to optimal therapy adherence. For more info: Robinapp
