BeWell offers an integrated combination of applications and medical devices for each phase of the patient journey, adapted to the needs of every user, physician or patient
The medical self-test kiosk module is a part of the [email protected] digital platform, allowing patients to do their validated intake of vital parameters and questionnaires autonomically, without the interaction of a healthcare professional. With over 500.000 patients in several hospitals, the self-test kiosk has shown that yearly 1,5 FTE of nursing staff could be saved or reallocated. It enters the captured data immediately into the EMR, thus simplifying the work of all hospital professionals. The kiosk is an CE-approved medical system and meets all GDPR standards.
BeWell’s vision is to improve “Quality of Care” for chronically ill patients by improving health decision-making leading to better Health Outcomes. The BeWell [email protected] platform provides a full portal where physicians and patients can access applications and data to optimally fullfil the patient journey. Several modules are available, including an API- integration module saving time for IT-departments, as well as a carepath module, our award winning telemonitoring module and a medication scoring module.
In the last years we developed a strong Pain Care Path for Pectus Patients. After surgery these patients suffer sever pain due to the impact on their thorax. We usually send these patients home with a pain pump, and follow them up at home with the BeWell Innovations App. Patients were complaining of severe pain after a couple of days at home. Thanks to the data received from the BeWell App, we discovered a flaw in the settings of the pain pump, which led to a diminished drug delivery on day 3. The problem was rectified, and patient complaints disappeared.

[email protected] supports our approach to subacute and chronic pain by offering a platform for continuous follow-up. Patients are provided with a toolbox and app that continuously collects objective outcome data. Pilot results clearly indicate an increase in patient responsibility and self-management, with a significantly shorter treatment period and earlier functional reintegration as a result.

Every day, between 180 and 220 patients visit the oncology department for a consultation. The classic measurements by physicians take 3:07 minutes on average. If patients measure their parameters themselves, physicians can theoretically spend 10 hours per day on other, more complex tasks.
