A new app for home-monitoring, will make it easier for patients in Region of Southern Denmark with high blood pressure. The app makes it easier for patients, to handle the mandatory readings by themselves, writes Welfare Tech on their website.

In the spring of 2016, the test project of the new app was launched, called “My progress”. The technology developed by MedWare, an it-company from Funen, in collaboration with Apple and CoLab Odense, which is a collaboration between OUH, Odense University Hospital and Odense Municipality.

Positive outcomes have already occurred, as a number of patients with high blood pressure, participate in the project “My courses”, said that they gain more quality time their job and with their family, due to home monitoring via an iPhone, which save them the trip to the clinic at Odense University Hospital.

‘My progress’ is a good example of user-driven innovation. We have a number of ideas to resolve the many issues in the future within health care, issues which can be solved with innovation and the use of modern technology.” Says Jacob Glasdam, partner in MedWare.
