Experience Co-Creation in Health Care (EC3)

Posted by on Jul 30, 2010 in Blog, Experience Co-Creation in Care - Ec3 | 0 comments

In health care, patients are often left alone with their therapies. Currently, we see service and marketing in health care efforts using the internet to fill the patients’ most obvious needs. Information services, indication backgrounds, drug information, patient stories, communities around peers, compliance guidelines are all services brought to the patient on a one-to-one basis.
From a health care perspective, these efforts are innovative, but do not present a structural attempt to systematically arrange all or several of the elements that caring for one’s health condition may include.
Setting up and delivering an integrated context for servicing patients’ needs and demands will be more beneficial to patients in coping with their condition, as well as to the stakeholders relating to them in pursuing their health care business.

Social Media: Public place for reproach?

What you may like to prevent just by using social media in health care.
Here’s a Dutch father complaining about the reimbursement of a continuous glucose monitoring system in a national newspaper. For the control of his daughter’s diabetes, who has also a Down syndrome, he is only reimbursed for a normal glucose meter, not the wished for continuous glucose monitoring system.
The father states that the health care insurance company informed him, unsolicited: “We want you to know that continuous monitoring can not be reimbursed.” That’s what it was. He is amazed that the Down condition of his daughter is not a concern to them whatsoever? Shouldn’t it have been taken into account?
