The ELECTOR project aims to develop a web-based platform for home-based monitoring of self-reliant patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The solution will encompass point-of-care devices for the measurement of biochemistry at home and a web-based user interface for capturing patient reported outcomes.
The proposed eHealth platform will encompass point-of-care devices used for measuring biochemistry at home and a web-based graphical user interface for communication, knowledge transfer and for the reporting of questionnaires as well as joint assessments. This solution will constitute a reliable, safe and straightforward method for obtaining self-assessments and facilitate easy, rapid and customizable access to health care assistance at times of need.
The end result is a platform that will provide an integrated and direct collection of data into patient notes in the set-up of an e-Health outpatient clinic for citizens with rheumatoid arthritis. This solution will constitute a reliable, safe and straightforward method for obtaining self-assessments and facilitate easy and rapid access to health care assistance at times of need for the individual patient.
