Patient Profile Feedback is a brief e-health self-management screening tool. It provides easy to understand insight into the specific aspects of functioning (e.g., complaints, coping skills, quality of life) that might need particular attention for the individual patient and also provides insight into changes in functioning over time. The instrument can be used for patients with somatic diseases, such as patients with rheumatic, dermatological, and renal diseases.
Within a single graph, the results are summarised per area of functioning, indicating the level of functioning in comparison to the norm group. In this graph, green indicates good functioning, orange potential risk, and red high risk. The patient perspective is also specifically included by adding the top 3 of improvement priorities of patients.
Patient Profile Feedback can be used at a regular basis (e.g., every 6 months) in standard care to map and discuss the individual need of patients for stepwise care, including the potential of (e-health) self-management interventions.
The screening tool has been developed in collaboration with the LUMC and TNO Expertise Center Lifestyle.
