As one of the consortium partners, BITS is taking care of the technical realization of the digital infrastructure in the project funded by the Innovation Fund of the Federal Joint Committee (GBA). In addition to IT project management, our tasks include IT conception, IT architecture and development of the web portal to manage the study and the implementation of the digital questionnaires within the app “Meine Busenfreundin”.
The app is connected via an interface to the newly developed, web-based platform PRISMA, to which only the treating breast center has access. If the patient repeatedly makes conspicuous statements, PRISMA informs the breast center. There, a specialist can then contact the patient directly and provide advice.
Initially, this will be investigated in 400 female subjects as part of a study. Half will use the app and the other half will receive conventional follow-up. By comparing these two groups in terms of treatment adherence and quality of life, the benefits of digital care will be examined.
