12:00-12:30 h | Virtual

In its early stages, Lyme disease is an infectious disease that can be treated well and successfully. The situation is similar for other tick-borne diseases, the so-called co-infections. However, the situation is completely different with the chronic stages of these infections, for example if they have not been detected or have been treated incorrectly or not at all. In such cases the patients have very long courses of disease and massive limitations in their quality of life. In addition, several organ systems are usually affected in these cases ("multisystem disease"). In such cases, the patient has to be treated over long periods of time, for example by means of long-term antibiosis. In our clinic in Augsburg / Germany we have treated about 27,000 patients with chronic courses of tick-borne diseases in the last 14 years. In our experience, these patients require very long care and treatment times. Long-term therapies with antibiotics and supporting medication are part of everyday life. In order to be able to ensure the care of our patients as the number of patients grows, we have developed a doctor-patient application ("LymeCare") together with the company Symcollect and introduced it in our clinic in June 2014. The LymeCare app is based on a differentiated questionnaire about the patient's condition. Patients regularly answer questions on their input device about their condition and illness. For example, symptoms from certain organ systems, side effects during therapy, pain information, important environmental factors or general well-being can be queried. For each question a score is stored, which is evaluated by a certain algorithm. If a critical value is exceeded in the process, an alarm is triggered which is immediately forwarded to the attending physician. The evaluated results are immediately available to the patient and the doctor on a daily basis. If there is currently a deterioration in the patient's condition during therapy, the doctor is also informed via an alarm function so that he can immediately take care of the problems that have occurred. In our daily routine we notice a clear improvement in patient compliance with regard to therapy and a significant reduction in the use of our doctors. Patients are better informed about their condition and know where they are under therapy. In the event of a possible deterioration in their condition, the doctor can proactively contact the patient much more quickly on his own initiative thanks to the alarm function. This increases patient safety. The technology used can also be used for many other chronic diseases. For example in chronic pain or oncological patients.
