Pilot Project Muscular Diseases
patient2care® - What is it about?
patient2care is a new digital navigation platform created with and for patients. It enables patients and their relatives to quickly and easily find helpful information and support on many issues related to their disease.
Access to possible therapies, treatment centers, aids or, more generally, oder to trustworthy information to better manage a rare or complex disease all too often already requires experts' knowledge. Finding specific support options through self-help, internet research, specialized counseling services, and navigating to what is available is the opportunity to help those in their situations
A first concrete pilot project for the novel digital approach is the personal guide in the particularly extensive field of neuromuscular diseases.
patient2care® helps patients to better navigate the healthcare system!
