The individual Health Advisor supports both Partners involved in the therapy process, the patient and the attending physician with medical decisions. It operates in the context of therapy management systems and generates so called health notifications, as individual patient feedback, reminder, alerts or status reports.
chiliHEAD is a web-service, which matches rule bases (a collection of IF-THEN rules) against the patients’ health data (anamnesis, target values, monitoring data) to analyze the patients state and to generate individual health notifications.
The generated feedback messages are used to inform the patient about deviations from the treatment targets and to increase the patients’ compliance. Alerts or status reports are focused to support physicians with routine work.
