e-health in practice

2
00:00:06,320 --> 00:00:13,120
When you have a lung attack
you won't have any strength left.

3
00:00:13,240 --> 00:00:19,600
I have COPD. That's the disease I have.
You have to learn to live with it.

4
00:00:21,800 --> 00:00:26,720
When I go to the hospital
and I do it all by foot...

5
00:00:26,840 --> 00:00:30,160
that's physically very demanding.

6
00:00:31,760 --> 00:00:36,320
I can't walk the whole distance in one go,
I have to pause now and then.

7
00:00:37,320 --> 00:00:43,320
The day before you have an appointment,
you cannot be active. You'll do very little.

8
00:00:44,320 --> 00:00:48,040
And going to the hospital
costs a lot of energy...

9
00:00:48,160 --> 00:00:52,760
so the next day you can do very little.
You need to plan everything.

10
00:00:52,880 --> 00:00:59,720
I'm very happy with the video calls
I can make with Isala now.

11
00:01:00,880 --> 00:01:04,760
It saves me two or three trips
to the hospital.

12
00:01:04,880 --> 00:01:11,720
Good morning. Good to see you.
-Yes, thank you.

13
00:01:11,840 --> 00:01:18,360
You filled in the questionnaire
and I see you're doing much better.

14
00:01:18,480 --> 00:01:24,080
Video calling
is a relatively new form of care for us.

15
00:01:24,200 --> 00:01:29,160
At this point we mostly use it
to counsel COPD patients.

16
00:01:29,280 --> 00:01:34,800
We ask the patients to fill in
a questionnaire on their iPad once a week.

17
00:01:34,920 --> 00:01:40,680
How often did you cough? Did you
cough up mucus? Are you short of breath?

18
00:01:40,800 --> 00:01:47,600
It enables us to monitor the COPD.
Is it stable, is it getting worse or better?

19
00:01:47,720 --> 00:01:54,080
I check for notifications. A notification
means the patient is doing worse.

20
00:01:54,200 --> 00:01:58,600
Then I call them to ask
how they're doing, what's going on.

21
00:01:58,720 --> 00:02:03,240
How often do you use it now?
-I use it twice a day.

22
00:02:03,360 --> 00:02:06,640
Two puffs in the morning
and two in the evening.

23
00:02:06,760 --> 00:02:13,120
Video calling offers them a different type of
care. You become part of their daily lives.

24
00:02:13,240 --> 00:02:19,000
The patient can stay at home. And
what I didn't expect, but what's really nice...

25
00:02:19,120 --> 00:02:25,120
is that communication becomes
more normal, more accessible...

26
00:02:25,240 --> 00:02:28,040
more comfortable than at our location.

27
00:02:29,200 --> 00:02:35,760
They're more aware of their condition
and have to call when it's not going well.

28
00:02:35,880 --> 00:02:39,800
Because they see how they're doing,
and we see it too...

29
00:02:39,920 --> 00:02:45,400
you can intervene more quickly,
if necessary, to prevent hospitalisation.

30
00:02:47,560 --> 00:02:52,480
For me, if I wouldn't have had access
to these video calls...

31
00:02:52,600 --> 00:02:58,200
I would have been admitted to hospital
much more often.

32
00:02:58,320 --> 00:03:04,720
Video calling works more efficiently.
You can be more hands-on with the patient.

33
00:03:04,840 --> 00:03:10,360
In the questionnaire you can identify
the problem and talk about it with them.

34
00:03:10,480 --> 00:03:13,760
Ultimately the patient
will be more in charge.

35
00:03:13,880 --> 00:03:17,760
They won't need us as much
and can do more for themselves.
