Proempower: patient empowerment and self-management


The ProEmpower procurers are looking for a diabetes management solution that will tackle the unmet needs in the current treatment of diabetes such as the fragmentation in today’s healthcare systems, the overreliance on and the ineffectiveness of pharmacotherapy, the late detection of the disease and the frequency of severe complications. This will be achieved by providing personalised and multi-disciplinary care to diabetes patients and empowering them to become responsible actors in the care process.


The procured ProEmpower solution will address the need for the stratification of patients according to risk and promote the adoption of a team-based approach. Care will become person-centred, guided by a personalised decision support system which will make it easier to set adequate treatment goals. Self-management education will be a key component of the ProEmpower solution which will foster the creation of a peer support network for patients, in order to help them maintain a healthier lifestyle . At the same time, ProEmpower will contribute to creating a learning healthcare system based in a quality oriented culture that continuously improves itself.
