Outcomes that matter to patients

Quodem is a leader in the design, implementation and running of performance measurement and predictive medicine projects.

What is patient centric?

Embarking on a project using a patient-centric perspective calls for a common focus amongst healthcare professionals, patients and their families in order to align clinical decisions with patient expectations and needs.
This approach includes programmes for the measurement of patient-relevant outcomes, training programmes and patient support initiatives, which help them play an active role in the decisions affecting their own health.

Why a patient-centric focus?

  • The participation of all those involved in the disease increases their commitment.
  • The patient helps the healthcare professional in making the right decisions.
  • The direct participation of the patient and their family in the treatment improves the results in the management of the disease, resulting in less use of health resources by reducing re-admissions, consultations, emergencies, etc.
  • Focusing the results on those that really matter to the patient, we establish objective parameters for measuring the real value delivered in the care process, promoting the creation of continuous improvement and cost optimisation models, the latter associated with methodologies of Outcome Based Agreements.

Keys to working in a patient-centric environment:

  • Data-driven organisation or project (data as raw material for decision-making and innovation)
  • Intensive and intelligent use of technology: the technological environment as a tool and means (never end) for managing all procedures associated with a patient-centric perspective
  • Approach to transparency. The healthcare provider must assume that the patient’s opinion should be aimed at improving their quality of life, not at evaluating the work of the health professional or the efficiency of the service or hospital centre.

Projects associated with a patient-centric approach

Outcome measurement and predictive medicine programmes

Initiatives related to results-based medicine (value based healthcare) which incorporate big data techniques and artificial intelligence for the development of clinical decision support tools: clustering patients and definition of risk groups, identification of levers that influence results, measurement of the health professional’s performance.


Patient adherence and compliance programmes

These comprise digital solutions that help improve treatment compliance and adherence by patients by using SMS, eMail, Voz, Gaming or Apps to send reminders about the prescription pattern associated with that treatment. Chronic prescription products, with changes in the treatment pattern or with doses delivered over time, have a high dropout rate with respect to the prescribed pattern. Adherence programmes and compliance, through direct actions to the patient, are therefore essential to assist in compliance with the guideline (never with product advertising).


Apps and mobile solutions

Apps, or mobile applications open an infinite framework in terms of the opportunities that technology brings to people’s daily lives. Their high availability and easy adoption by users make them a fundamental element as a communication channel with groups of people with similar characteristics and needs. Mobile devices offer important advantages which should be used to the full: availability, accessibility, immediacy, multimedia, geolocation, etc. It is therefore very important to have a deep knowledge of technology and its application to the business.


Patient education and training programmes

In many pathologies, especially chronic ones or those whose management is complex, patient-oriented training programmes have been shown to be very effective in empowering them and significantly improving results
