LifeQmed is a project in the field of register medicine and big data in healthcare, evaluating the outcome of medical treatment, bringing those into ratio with the costs and enabling comparative and prognostic models – beginning in the field of rehabilitation, alter on expending further.
LifeQmed works as an outcome measurement tool, monitoring tool for individual treatment, prognostic tool for patient improvement, quality tool for clinics and medical centers, value-based evaluation tool and a tool for structural planning in the field of public health.
Unique Selling Proposition
The fundament of LifeQmed is a very strong multidisciplinary core team and stakeholders, including HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL and the University Clinic of Vienna. Members of the multidisciplinary team have experience with implementation and launch of project in the field of big healthcare data and value-based care.
First medical field of the project is cardiovascular rehabilitation. Extension to further fields of medicine is planned. LifeQMed starts in selected countries in Europe with a roll-out potential onto many other markets worldwide.
LifeQmed brings significant advantages for defacto all relevant stakeholders in health care – the patients, medical experts, clinics, academia, governmental institutions, payors and technological companies. LifeQmed enables increase in quality and efficiency of healthcare provision and optimization of the healthcare system.
- OUTCOME MEASUREMENT TOOL for rehabilitation treatments
- MONITORING TOOL for the individual rehabilitation cycle
- PROGNOSTIC TOOL for patient improvement
- QUALITY TOOL for rehabilitation medicine and centers
- VALUE BASED CARE evaluation tool
- PUBLIC HEALTH TOOL for rehabilitation structure planning
The vision of the lifeQmed concept is based on the idea to document and quantify the entire patient journey in the field of rehabilitation medicine and then analyse it using big data. In a controlled process, patient data will be collected in a quality management & patients registry, which serves as the data pool for further analyses.
LifeQmed is a software platform that stores, processes and analyses these patient data. Furthermore, the software offers innovative tools for outcome measurement and quality control:
The REHAB Score
generated on the lifeQmed patient registry is of advantage for all involved stakeholders and for decision making processes of in- and outpatient care.
The Value-Based Healthcare (VBHC) Score
is based on the Harvard concept of the Value Based Healthcare, including financial data.
Patients in rehabilitation centres will follow an individual treatment plan by ICF* standards and benefit from a clear understanding of their progression.
Our concept provides a full quality control based on a patient registry. The constellation of our team in the field of IT, academia and business covers all relevant aspects and guarantees high efficiency.
* ICF (International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health) is the WHO framework for measuring health and disability at both individual and population levels
