ImpactMonitor and its relevance for future therapy management
As a platform provider we connect patients, medical professionals and pharmaceutical manufacturers through our state-of-the-art communication infrastructure. Our goal is to collect and subsequently provide information on drug efficacy and safety, in real time from real-world care.
To this end, we use standardized measurement tools, so-called Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROM), to capture user experiences. With the development of the ImpactMonitor, life science companies can now make use of our simple, digital and efficient web application when bringing new therapies to market.
What is the ImpactMonitor used for ?
With ImpactMonitor, we offer pharmaceutical companies the opportunity to gain data-driven insights into the drug efficacy and safety of their pharmaceuticals. This is particularly useful for drugs that have received a conditional marketing authorization and therefore need to be monitored during use. Such data collection and analysis is possible via the simple, cost-effective and flexible scalable ImpactMonitor.
For optimal therapy or drug monitoring, standardized and scientifically developed measurement instruments for recording patient experience (PROM) can be used on a regular basis. These can be easily implemented via ImpactMonitor, broadcast to thousands to millions of users, and analyzed. In the process, any new adverse events can also be reported immediately and communicated to affected individuals in the shortest possible time.
The use of the ImpactMonitor is very simple:
As soon as a patient is prescribed a new drug or a new therapy, he or she is informed by the doctor about the possibility of data collection accompanying the application. Using a QR code or even entering the website link directly, the patient can register online for the program and immediately enjoy all the benefits.
ImpactMonitor ultimately functions as a reliable, digital companion for patients and includes the following 4 main functions:
1. Dosage and Intake
Patients have the possibility to get information about the individual intake and dosage of the medication at a glance via the ImpactMonitor. These are given directly by the manufacturer or medical experts. Depending on the medication and the person, the recommended dosage and intake may differ. As a kind of “digital instruction leaflet”, the patient now has all the important information directly at hand.
2. Push Notifications for maximum safety
If new, unknown side effects occur, pharmaceutical manufacturers need to act as quickly as possible. The ImpactMonitor notifies other patients via push notifications when such side effects become known. This makes an effective contribution to overall patient safety. Such an approach also not only builds trust between patients and pharmaceutical manufacturers, but also contributes to therapy adherence.
During therapy, patients can view the therapy progress of other patients and compare their own tolerability profile with them. Under the keyword “relative expectation management”, patients are optimally prepared for therapy by transparently displaying tolerance profiles and thus promoting adherence to medication.

4. Online Support
In addition to tracking drug efficacy, ImpactMonitor also provides a multilateral communication infrastructure. Patients can communicate directly with physicians or pharmaceutical manufacturers. For minor concerns, patients can also contact our experts. Sometimes quick answers are enough to significantly increase patient satisfaction.
Conclusion for the use of the ImpactMonitor
Effective drug monitoring requires extensive communication among all medical professionals as well as patient involvement. No one can provide more valid real-world data than the patient himself. ImpactMonitor combines these features in a unique platform solution.
→ Through PROM, real-world data is collected in a structured way and immediately analyzed.
Direct patient support
→ By involving medical professionals, patients get quick answers when they have questions. An interface to telemedicine services is also possible.
Relative expectation management
→ Already in advance the patient knows, through RWE, which (side) effects are to be expected, therefore a significantly higher adherence to medication can be expected.
Opportunities for precision medicine
→ By evaluating thousands of therapy reports, ImpactMonitor can generate indications and therapy recommendations for specific patient groups. This allows for much more specific interactions in the therapy process.
