Region Jämtland Härjedalen

Region Jämtland Härjedalen was the first in Sweden to develop and test a new working model as part of the transition to a “Close Care” (translated from Swedish, “Nära vård”).
The film summarizes the thoughts and experiences of working with digital self-care for people with chronic diseases with ImagineCare as support.

Pilot project

In January 2018, the region launched a pilot for digital self-care. The purpose of the project was to develop a care model that facilitated self-care for people with chronic disease using remotely independent technology. Initially the target group were patients diagnosed with hypertension, and but the aim of the pilot was to also include other chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart failure, mental illness, asthma, and COPD.

Evaluations from the project show that both staff and patients were generally very satisfied with the care model. There was a clear trend that patients’ health values, such as blood pressure, improved during the time the patients were connected. In evaluations, healthcare professionals indicated, among other things, that with the help of the new digital tools, they could support more patients than with the traditional ways of working.

We want to be the obvious choice for health care when it comes to supporting digital monitoring. Imaginecare has built-in decision support and can be used as a basis for monitoring most patient groups. ImagineCare enables the “Close Care” concept and facilitates priorities so that the person with the greatest need gets help first.
