This session describes the results from the use of the innovative communication platform HOPE Solution and the strategic decisions taken in the configuration and implementation of the services. The novel services are embedded in the InSPIRA methodology for psoriasis patients in Psoriasisföreningen i Stockholms län. The communication platform has an open architecture and is fully integrated with many different third party services, e.g. Apps, video platform through the platform’s backend. In practice, the remote monitoring and self-management offers new ways of offering and delivering care based on patient-centered-care. A structured practice that includes systematized and digitized protocols, remote monitoring and continuous follow-up of the individual’s symptoms and treatment effects – at the individual level in real time – against set treatment goals formed by Social Welfare National guidelines for psoriasis. The smart approach supporting self-management and interactive communication in real-time marks the beginning of a change towards digitalized healthcare where IT support is integrated more and more tightly into health care businesses and affects them fundamentally. The challenges are to secure use of fast, configurable and secure platforms that offers useful and secure services for patients and medical staff. It involves continuous follow-up and negotiation with people and organizations concerning what functionality and information they need when to reach optimal collaboration between healthcare and self-care. This involves not just healthcare and patients but also patients’ families. The need for a communication platform as a service provided “by one body” has disappeared in Psoriasisföreningen; today it is a shared platform embedded in the innovative, inclusive and sustainable healthcare infrastructure. The communication platform is just a starting point for a novel and limitless remote monitoring and self-management including limitless patient-, healthcare-, life science industry-, pharma-, IT/APP industry actors and activities.
