How it Works

When the liver starts to fail, numerous complications set in

Common complications arising from decompensated cirrhosis include

  • Ascites, characterised by abdominal fluid build-up
  • Hepatic encephalopathy, the reduction in some higher mental functions
  • Hypovolemia, a reduction in extra-cellular fluids, which could lead to kidney failure
  • Increased susceptibility to bacterial infections and others

It is important to have continual monitoring of these to avoid further deterioration and, potentially, re-hospitalisation

Help is at hand with CirrhoCare®

CirrhoCare® is one of a new class of therapeutics called Prescription Digital Therapeutics (PDTs). It designed specifically for diagnosis of new cirrhosis complications and/or organ dysfunction for patients at home

Metrics collected via sensors and patient inputs

These include heart rate and its variability, temperature, body fluid composition, gauge of higher mental function, sleep and others and other indicators of complications such as ascites, hepatic encephalopathy, hypovolemia

Presented to clinicians on a dashboard
in real-time

Hepatologists can make informed assessments on the patient’s condition, aided by algorithms that assist in the detection of complications

Ongoing two-way communication between clinician and patient/caregiver via the app

Clinicians can provide instructions on what to do to prevent the complications from becoming more serious
