Clinical Focus

Psoriasis

Intended Use

Point-of-care shared decision tool. Pre-SaMD designation

The Result

Exam-room friendly digital tool that fosters physician-patient interactions to support shared decision making in treatment and disease management. 

Challenge

There is a lack of repeatable protocols and tools to assist HCPs who need to counsel their patients on the best options for managing their disease while maximizing their quality of life (QoL). As a result, consults are widely inconsistent based on the individual approach of each HCP.  It often excludes the patient from the decision and makes it difficult for them to communicate their priorities.

Approach

  • Proprietary Data Set
  • Patient & HCP Inputs
  • Real-time Visualization
  • Qualitative Follow Up

Solution

Through the development of a proprietary data set across multiple QoL dimensions, a solution was designed with an easy to use, touch– and click- friendly interface.  The solution brings confidence and consistency to the consult with immediate visualized results based on real-time inputs from the patient and HCP.
