When someone suffers from Crohn’s disease, a chronic inflammatory disorder, the immune system in the intestinal wall causes infections in the entire gastrointestinal tract. That can lead to several gastrointestinal complaints which occur in flare-ups, alternated with periods free of complaints. Adjusted medication which suppresses the inflammatory reactions can help control the symptoms.
Remedus offers several services to increase therapy adherence and to support the patient in his or her illness:
- Training to learn to administer subcutaneous medication oneself
- Provide calprotectin (an indicator of bowel inflammation) tests and teach how to self test
- A reminder service to support medication administration which increases therapy adherence and lowers the chance of flare-ups
- Psychological support to learn how to deal with the disorder and how to manage it oneself
- Social coaching in several topics (for example emotional impact, relations with one’s doctor, treatment perception)
