“Novarum’s API solution gives us a platform where data can be shared across partner organisations and research institutions. By pooling this data with universities and research institutions, we are deepening our collective knowledge and helping to create connected solutions that enable us to identify trends more effectively and potential solutions – creating a step-change in how we treat, monitor and manage IBD".
Product Manager IBDoc, BÜHLMANN
Sophisticated levels of user access control
Novarum has developed site architecture for IBDoc® that allows BÜHLMANN to control exactly who is permitted to receive access to which data, with sophisticated levels of user access control. Through the use of application program interfaces on both the CalApp® and web-services, BÜHLMANN has been able to give patients the ability to collect and record data while sharing it with professionals and organisations they trust, including Electronic Healthcare providers and pharmaceutical partners, to help shape the future of their care.
The portal was designed with the highest security standards to keep confidential information safe and serves as a communication platform between patient and the doctor. The healthcare professional receives a push notification when the test is performed and the results are instantly transferred to the web portal. Depending on the test result, doctors can communicate with patients to advise on further investigative steps or changes in disease management.
Dr Neil Polwart, Novarum Founder, BBI Group Head of Mobile said: “BÜHLMANN recognised early, through its engagement with key industry stakeholders, that they needed to interact closely with other data collectors to deliver a positive experience for the patient and provide useful information to the relevant clinicians quickly. A key requirement has been that users should not have to login to multiple systems to access their data, and so a form of federalised security has been employed, which has meant that as the geographic reach of the product has spread; the regional infrastructure to support the local data regulations has been scaled-up”.
