First COVID-19 patient community is born

  • Acuam Healthcare, the company that created the patient platform Pacientalia® and the Institute for Patient Experience (IEXP) join efforts to give voice to Covid-19 patients and their family members.

 

  • The platform is available with no cost at iOS and Android. Patients can support each other, share their experiences after overcoming the disease, avoiding isolation and increasing knowledge, motivation and mutual comfort.

 The same way the COVID-19 crisis needed a continency plan in order to create a protocol for healthcare professionals, the Insitute for Patient Experience (IEXP) has supported Acuam Healthcare in order to develop the first community and social app for people infected by the SARS CoV-2 coronavirus isolated at home. These patients need psychological and motivation support, logistic help, social aid as well as trustable, validated and professional information. This community has been developed with the results of the first study on Covid-19 patients and presented on April 12th.

There are still over 200.000 patients infected and isolated in their homes and possibly one million people may have passed already the disease, as the study done by IEXP with the co-operation of the Spanish Society for Healthcare Quality (SECA) and the Madrid Hospital La Princesa.
