Announcing BMP Grant winner: Master Your Pain, an innovative, personalised e-health platform to help patients with rheumatic pain understand their symptoms and access care.
In 2013, University Medical Centre Groningen developed Master Your Symptoms, an e-health platform for people experiencing unexplained pain.
The program is able to present psychosocial and behavioural factors that could be contributing to pain, according to a tailored personal profile.
Now the project wants to expand its scope to help people with rheumatic pain. Their system can help patients self-manage their pain.
Rheumatic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis, are among the most prevalent and disabling chronic diseases in Western adult populations.
Dr Denise Hanssen is available for interview.
