Currently in development, Adyuvo provides a secure environment for safe, collaborative and truly personalised care planning that leads to better health outcomes. The app allows patients, carers, nurses, medical staff and pharmacists to collaborate to assess, communicate and adjust treatment and care based on ‘real time’ monitoring and feedback.
As healthcare provision and technology evolves, people can live much longer than ever before. Our ageing community, in addition to the increasing burden of chronic disease, puts significant pressure on our healthcare system and increases the associated costs of treating patients both in and out of hospital.
Patients and healthcare consumers, particularly those with chronic illness, can control their symptoms via medication and lifestyle choices but often require support from their GP, specialist doctors, nurses and pharmacist or in-home carer. Due to the number of healthcare professionals involved and often conflicting systems or technology, communication between providers can be slow, cumbersome and sometimes ineffective.
The need for partnership and good communication between healthcare providers and patients, both for initial and on-going care, is critical to ensuring the delivery of a comprehensive, patient-centred care plan.
Ross Hardy, founder of Adyuvo, realised the need for better healthcare communication after suffering a broken pelvis in late 2015. During his initial stay in hospital and subsequent 12 months rehabilitation, Ross realised the communication gap between patients and healthcare providers – and knew there was a better way to help patients to get the care they needed and feel engaged in their treatment plan.
With over 30 years experience in the health and aged care sectors, Ross is passionate about quality healthcare and creating a better experience for patients. The team aim to provide an innovative tool that allows healthcare providers to educate and collaborate in the best interest of their patients.
