En­joy Se­cu­ri­ty and Ef­fi­ca­cy in­s­tead: The­ra­py Ad­he­rence 4.0

The di­gi­tal block­chain-ba­sed the­ra­py ma­nage­ment sys­tem for the me­di­cal prac­ti­ce

 

How an App makes a suc­cess­ful sys­tem mo­re user fri­end­ly, mo­re ef­fici­ent and mo­re re­lia­ble and ma­na­ges to an­nul the en­ti­re ad­he­rence pro­blem.

Ru­ma GmbH spe­cia­li­zes in ad­he­rence sup­port in the field of ad­dic­tion the­ra­py.


The Ru­ma Mar­ker-Sys­tem re­places de­gra­ding di­rect ob­ser­va­ti­on of uri­ne sam­ple collec­tion with mar­ker sub­s­tan­ces. They al­low the re­lia­ble matching of sam­ple and sam­ple do­nor.


Our ex­ten­si­ve ex­pe­ri­ence in this field ser­ves as the ide­al pre­re­qui­si­te to match the ana­log pro­cess to its di­gi­tal coun­ter­part.

We have trans­fer­red this ana­log pro­cess chain in­to the di­gi­tal world by re­pre­sen­ting the in­di­vi­du­al mar­ker sub­s­tan­ce as a di­gi­tal twin in a pri­va­te block­chain.


Now the di­gi­tal twin do­cu­ments the path of the sub­s­tan­ce from pro­duc­tion to dis­tri­bu­ti­on to the phy­si­ci­an, to the pa­ti­ent ta­king the sub­s­tan­ce, to va­li­da­ti­on of the uri­ne sam­ple by the lab, and fi­nal­ly to bil­ling.

1. Manufacturing
The Ruma® marker capsules are manufacrured individually coded with interlocking security features on outer and inner packaging and are distributed through laboratories to the associated medical offices/facilities. The codes are encoded again before being provided to the labs.

2. Dispensing
When introducing a new patient, the medical office/facility links the app of the patient to the app of the practice, thus individually activating the system for each patient. Data communicaton is executed in encoded fashion within a block chain. Dispensing of each individually coded marker is documented in a manipulation-proof manner. Through a push notification the physician defines the time frame during which the urine sample has to be provided.

3. Coding of the urine sample
The patient scans the QR-code* of their Ruma® marker and thus activates the personalized features of the patient's app. Going forward, they can only continue the process by scanning the code they have been assigned by their medical practice. The manipulation-proof intake of the coded Ruma® marker capsules guarantees the definite matching of urine sample and urine donor. The video of the intake is recorded, encoded and transfered to the treating physician/provider. The patient collects the urine sample independent of location and hands it over/sends it to the lab or practice.
*alternatively Data Matrix code possible.

4. Validation (physician)
The physician checks the marker intake video in an asynchronous manner for possible manipulation or correct intake, respectively, allowing them to promptly react if the patient/user needs support. Events suggesting manipulation are documented.

5. Validation (laboratory)
The lab performs the accredited analysis of the urine. This includes the confirmation of the marker code transmitted by the manufacturer as well as dedicated manipulation tests. The lab transfers the results to the physician.

Interested in the digital version of the Ruma® Marker-System?

The Consultation that doesn‘t require an Appointment.

The physician can check the digital recording of the patient's marker intake at his or her convenience. No need for trips to the medical office or waiting times. But instead more freedom for optimized office procedures.

After the intake process has been recorded the sample collector is notified accordingly.

He or she can now watch and check the video. The video is assessed by means of a defined scale that differentiates between „Successful Intake“ "Failed Attempt" or „Manipulation Attempt“.

Why Block­chain in a Medical App?

We use block­chain tech­no­lo­gy to en­su­re se­cu­re da­ta trans­fer. It is the car­ri­er of all in­for­ma­ti­on:

 

  • re­gar­ding the samp­les and their life cy­cle
  • re­gar­ding the sam­ple do­nors
  • re­gar­ding sam­ple collec­tors and their re­spec­ti­ve fa­ci­li­ties

Plus, the history of the data is stored in their "life cycle" including all changes, administrative activities and protocols.


Every change can be traced back to a specific user so that these data are unforgeable and unchangeable. Data storage on the blockchain is audit-proof.
