Decompensation usually leads to regular hospitalisation
Any one of several complications can give rise to an acute event. However, studies show that a significant proportion of these re-admissions are preventable with continual monitoring, but there are currently no approved? means of doing this with the patient in a home setting. Deterioration usually occurs quite quickly, well within the time between scheduled clinical reviews
How It works
• CirrhoCare® utilises a smartphone app that collates the patient’s vital metrics for transmission on to the CyberLiver platform for analysis.
• CirrhoCare® also acts as bi-directional communication system between hepatologists and their patients, helping to ensure compliance and engagement.
• The patient effectively receives specialist care on a continual basis, regardless of location or proximity to specialised liver care centres.
• The patient’s status is presented in real-time to clinicians via a dashboard, raising alerts whenever algorithms analysing the various metrics indicate the onset or worsening of specific complications.
• The CirrhoCare® dashboard enables specialists and nursing staff to make rapid, informed interventions, either to treat the complication or triage the patient for acute care
