Cuviva: Fighting Malnutrition – through a patient interface
Project: Fighting Malnutrition – through the use of a patient interface, sensor, electronic medical journal and nutritional software to connect healthcare and care stakeholders and personnel.
Cuviva aims to develop an e-health solution with Italian e-health company Meteda to improve coordination between local healthcare providers and private caregivers and ensure patient involvement in the care and healthcare processes. The ultimate objective is improved outcomes for fragile elderly and reduced care costs.
An easy-to-use tablet and measuring instruments enable patients to record their weight, blood sugar levels and other health data on a daily basis while living a normal life at home. By making health data, nutritional intake and nutrition plans digitally available to health care providers and home carers, it is possible to follow patient health closely, enabling better coordination of healthcare efforts. Healthcare providers can also conduct regular video meetings with the patient to monitor nutrition plans and care efforts.
Fighting Malnutrition aims to:
- Empower individual patients and their relatives to manage their nutritional status
- Connect uncoordinated healthcare and care stakeholders for improved patient monitoring and care
- Provide a solution for screening, target setting, planning and following up nutritional status
