Most discussions about “patient ownership” involve responsibility for patient care by medical practitioners. There is however a growing trend in healthcare for shared decision making between professionals and patients. Considering both patient values and evidence-based outcome predictions leads to better professional recommendations and more informed patient choices
Patient decision aids are tools that help people get involved in shared decision making about their own treatment plan,
by making it clear what decisions need to be made, by providing clear information about the treatment context, options and predicted outcomes, and by helping patients to clarify their personal values.
Help your patients “own responsibility” for their treatment and outcomes by providing them with the tools and information they need to become part of their own treatment plan.
We advise you on the most appropriate tools for decision making, based on your needs. We collaborate with you on designing a shared decision-making process with patients and clinicians. We work according to the User Centered Design approach in which we focus on the users and their needs in each phase of the design process. We help you plan and set up user research with patients and health care practitioners on each stage of the product development process. We bridge the gap between your expertise and patients understanding.
We will build a customized Decision Aid tool tailored to your needs, directed by your stake-holders, in collaboration with your task force, working with your patent and practitioners groups. We can create a dedicated online tool, embedded on your website, a mobile application, or a decision aid creator with your built-in template that will enable you to independently create decision aids on any topic, with your own design.
Order a Decision Aid tool on any topic using templates for shared decision making developed by us in collaboration with McMaster scientists and the GRADE community. Over years of usability tests and design, we have achieved an optimal design and implementation process that facilitates patient understanding and participation. You may confidently utilize a design that has been tested by some of the largest guidelines groups.
We are interdisciplinary team of people who specialize in creating web applications for the medical industry.
We have extensive knowledge in the field of providing information to patients tailored to their knowledge resources.
We work according to the User Centered Design methodology, an approach that focuses on actual patients’ needs and requirements.
At each stage of the work, we test our solutions with patients and improve our product until it is fully understandable and useful for the target group.
