Our platform allows providers (doctors, facilities, therapists etc) to create reusable care plan templates for their practice. Each client can be enrolled in one or more care plans concurrently to help them adopt and cement the behaviors that will improve their health outcomes and their quality of life. clients can choose to share their plans and their progress with the people who will support them and hold them accountable. Providers can monitor compliance and achievement in real time.
Poor care plan adherence causes an estimated loss of three hundred BILLION health care dollars annually in the US due to poor outcomes, readmission, repeated or just plain failed interventions. Historically there has been little the provider could do, other then deploy expensive clinicians to call patients in the days after a surgery, or try to enroll a client in educational programming after a diabetes or hypertension diagnosis. client participation is spotty at best, and behavior change is nearly non existent. But getting a patient walking after knee replacement, getting a client to go to AA between outpatient sessions, and getting a diabetic to exercise are all crucial to long-term positive outcomes.
DydJa is committed to helping providers drive that behavior, not just in the days following a clinical episode, but for life. Founded on behavior change science, the DydJa Connect platform recognizes the very human need for support, accountability and professional guidance in long-term change. DydJa doesn't promote OUR programming. It provides your practice with a simple to use interface for creating reusable protocol templates. Create one for standard post knee replacement, create another for geriatric post knee replacement. When you sign up each client you can review the activities (walking, prescriptions, PT, etc.) with them and adapt them to the needs of the individual (competitive athletes may ramp up faster, while a patient with severe arthritis may take it a little easier). The client receives an email invitation and logs in with just two clicks. Once logged in, they see a simple daily to-do list, color-coded and icon-driven. They can invite a few friends and family members to share their view in the app and offer encouragement and accountability. Best of all, the care team can see right away if there are adherence issues and reach out to address any issues in the first days, when the opportunity to reinforce adherence is greatest.
In the days of capitated payments and risk-sharing arrangements, providers NEED to maximize outcomes with smart investments that return great health outcomes. DydJa helps providers and patients capture all they can from simple, shared success.
Category of Innovation
Digital Health - A digital health solution is a technology-based solution whose user is caring for or providing care for themselves (think of a personal app) or another individual (such as a doctor using a tool to help their patient)
Intended End User
Payer - Organizations responsible for issuing or administering payment for the care received by a population of people (e.g. insurance companies)
Patient - Individuals who receive health care
Provider - Individuals or organizations responsible for providing care to patients (e.g. doctors, nurses, hospital/clinic administrators, etc.)
Problem (i.e. barrier, issue, complication, etc.) being solved for the end user
Care Plan Adherence
Idea/solution to the problem, if applicable
Decades of evidence shows that the best surgery, device, therapy or molecule is at the mercy of the patient's behavior. By guiding the behavior change that providers, payers, purchaser, policy makers and patients themselves want, DydJa improves outcomes, reduces costs and improves value-based payment arrangements for all stakeholders.
Impact (i.e. measurable outcomes), if applicable
DydJa has had just a single user since launch: a friend who started the program a homeless alcoholic. He is now 2 years sober and graduating college this year. We are currently working on arrangements with social services organizations to expand our reach in this area, and seeking early adopters in clinical settings.
