Happi wint de VBHC Collaboration award 2021

"Talents win games but teams win championships".

Very proud that #Happiapp together with all her partners won the international Value Based Health Care Collaboration Award 2021 !

In 2014, we organised the first HIV innovation conference attended by hiv-patients, nurses and doctors where we asked ourselves the question how (technical) innovation could help improve the quality of life (QoL) and care of our hiv-patients. This resulted into the launch of the 1th Happi Hiv app in 2016. Happi started as a “Hiv Appi” but has consecutively evolved into a “Health Appi” suitable for managing one’s health and disease for any disease area.

The aim of the Happi Platform is to provide digital selfcare for patients by giving them knowledge, ease and trust in dealing with their health and disease which will lead to happier and healthier patients. Knowledge is provided by showing health goals on a dashboard. For example, in the Happi Hiv app: therapy effectiveness, therapy tolerance, cardiovascular risk and QoL. When a health goal is reached, a green smiley is shown and orange or red when work is still needed. Ease is provided through digitalisation of recurrent tasks (e.g. order repeat medication, manage pill intake time while travelling, chatbot for filling out PROMs). Finally, trust is given through remote monitoring by healthcare providers via the Happi portal. For example, dermatologist remotely diagnose and treat skin conditions since patients take a photo of their skin via Happi which is then visible in the Happi portal.
