How it works:
HCP invites a patient to join Kaiku Health where they can report symptoms, receive self-care instructions, education and communicate with the care team. HCP then receives the symptom reports and prioritized alerts through the Kaiku Health platform and can follow up with the whole patient population.
Kaiku Health clinical benefits approved by a notified body in Europe include earlier detection of symptoms, signs and/or relapse.
Target patient population:
Kaiku Health should only be used by people aged 18 years or older. People who are older than 15 years may use Kaiku Health if they are judged by the clinical team to be capable of using it.
What to expect:
Kaiku Health can support treatment decisions and diagnoses through earlier detection of symptoms, signs and/or relapse.
