In March 2020, the Östergötland Region procured ImagineCare as a platform for self-monitoring. The region’s goal was to implement new ways of working in health care to support people’s different conditions and abilities to maintain health, manage health challenges when they arise and have the energy to live life even when health challenges of a chronic nature exist.
Region Jämtland Härjedalen
The Jämtland Härjedalen region, together with ImagineCare, 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”) in the region. The region is home to 130,000 people with only one hospital covering an area larger than Denmark. This makes continuous monitoring and early detection of deteriorating medical conditions even more important.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center
In 2019, a cohort study of digital self-care support was conducted at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in the USA. The purpose of this study was to examine the use of staff and costs of a self-monitoring care model in persons with and without a chronic condition.
