The jury’s motivation:
No one knows a condition or disease better than the patient who is living with it. But to have a dialogue on equal terms with a doctor, based on reliable values and test results, the patient needs access to the data. In this case, academics with a great understanding of the reality of the chronic patient have developed a tool in collaboration with the care consumers. This will enable the patient group to have real power once the tool is available on existing and well-established platforms.
This year’s MedTech Patientmakt Award goes to Ontiledarna.nu and Patientens egen provhantering.
