Portavita is a leading supplier of Integrated Care Systems (ICS). As a platform for collaboration it supports hundreds of thousands of healthcare providers, patients and citizens all over the world. The aim of the system is to assist and enhance the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, monitoring and management of health and lifestyle.
Our generic ICS Module not only supports healthcare providers, caregivers and patients in sharing information and communicating with each other, but also allows others who are involved with citizens’ health (like government institutions) to have (restricted) access to the data.
Our ICS modules for Chronic Diseases, also called Care Management Modules, have specifically been developed to support the treatment of patients who suffer one or multiple chronic disease(s). Input of leading medical professionals and their patients is the basis for the current modules of the system: Diabetes, Asthma/COPD, Cardiovascular Risk Management, Anticoagulation, Elderly Care and Palliative. Patient self-management is an important part of these modules.
The Data Management Solutions of Portavita ensure that you can use your (big) data for management reporting, analysis or further research. All Portavita modules have integrated Reporting and Analysis functionality. Since the establishment of the company in 2002, all Portavita Modules are available in a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. Therefor, it can be used on all different devices like laptops, tablets and smartphones.
All modules are scalable, so you can start using the system quick and easy, with only a few users, and extend the number of users as you grow. Even if the complexity of your care processes and collaborations increase dramatically, this won’t have any big impact on the use of the system. The Portavita Integrated Care System is multilingual and currently in use in the Netherlands, Curaçao, Germany, Russia, Suriname, Poland and Italy.
It is the mission of Portavita to enable healthcare providers, patients and citizens to securely share information, by means of our Integrated Care System. The aim of the system is to assist and enhance the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, monitoring and management of health and lifestyle.
We envision a world where healthcare providers, patients and citizens can digitally and securely share all relevant information, to help create a healthier society.
We do everything in our power to develop and continuously improve our Integrated Care System. By means of our platform for collaboration, data can be shared to support and improve patient treatment and to increase citizens’ health. All solutions are secure and compliant with regulations, and are based on international standards.
