General description and expertise
Since 1996 Sananet plays a prominent role in the eHealth market. In the Netherlands the company is one of the pioneers in the field of telemedicine. The track record of the solutions of Sananet now has more than 7,500 patients and 2.000.000 session days with a compliance of 82%.
More specifically, Sananet is a developer and provider of eHealth solutions for people with (chronic) health problems. It develops (often in co-creation) medical validated telemedicine programs. For this Sananet started in 2004 in the (public-private) with partners to develop medically validated telemedicine programs for patients with chronic diseases such as chronic heart failure (CHF), COPD and Diabetes Mellitus 2 (DM2).
Since 2009 Sananet started with SananetOnline. This is a medical internet platform for developing and offering ehealth services to support the management of patients with the most common chronic diseases. SananetOnline is also used to support pharma-economic research into the effectiveness of pharmacological and non-pharmacological intervention therapies.
Chronic diseases are the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in Europe and other Western countries. A significant contribution to the burden of chronic diseases is the concurrence of co-morbidities. The current care approach for patients with co-morbidities is neither capable to deliver personalised care nor to halt the on-going increase of its socio-economic burden.
Sananet and its partners aim to improve the complete care process for example for patients with a chronic disease and related co-morbidities to improve outcome and quality of life while reducing costs. This will be achieved by development of a standardised yet personalised patient-oriented telecoaching and ICT solutions that supports evidence-based clinical decision making as well as interaction and communication between all stakeholders with focus on the patients and their relatives to improve self-management.
This innovative approach will significantly impact numerous aspects of care including: (1) empowering patients to enhance and manage their personal life; (2) supporting management of chronic diseases with co-morbidities and (3) improving care for chronic diseases in general.
