“The most impactful digital health solutions for chronic disease management are those that focus on improving outcomes and quality of life for patients; these are often classified as software as a medical device (SaMD).

While SaMD solutions come with a larger development and regulatory burden, our teams have the expertise needed to take clients through this process seamlessly, reducing the strain on the internal teams and resources within pharma organizations.”

Case Study
Creating a holistic chronic disease management platform for auto-immune diseases

Read how S3 Connected Health worked with a leading pharma company and global KOLs to create a holistic chronic disease management platform. The platform was created to drastically improve patient engagement through home management, improve clinical efficiency, and monitoring of patient outcomes.

The patient-centric solution included a cloud platform, portal, and patient app that supported patient education, symptom tracking, passively tracking adherence, device data collection and modelling, and patient engagement support through a behavioral model.

Clinicians benefitted from an engaged patient, support for virtual appointments, streamlined tools for creating patient care plans, and a patient dashboard that provides a comprehensive view for disease management.
