With Strikersoft at Vitalis exhibition – presenting “new digitalized support for self care focusing on stress and trauma.”

Pre-prototype EFT

This week I could already present a pre-prototype of the application that we are going to make in the Vinnova financed project: “NYTT DIGITALISERAT STÖD FÖR EGENVÅRD MED FOKUS PÅ TRAUMA OCH STRESS”, which means “new digitalized support for self care focussing on stress and trauma.”

Strikersoft has a good produkt ORDO that can be used as a technologybase, and it proved possible to configure a pre-prototype already now. The published self-help variant is planned for August.

Many of the participants I talked to assured that self help for stress and trauma would fill a real and growing need in the Swedish society. On my Facebook question: Is it reasonable to offer a digital self-help app on a smartphone for stress and trauma?” I have received many different opinions like for example:

  • Yes. // Erica Atwood-Hanson, nurse (RN at University of Minnesota Medical Center)
  • For sure! 
  • Yes I would use it! Everyone have their phones with them and use them all the time. It would be fantastic to use it as a useful tool for this
  • a very quick thought only. We can all of course suddenly experience very stressful situations, the need for support managing them must be very important. If knowing about the app, yes there should be a need. Depends maybe how you intend to reach out to the market and the content of the app?
  • Yes, probably a good idea!
  • No, I do not want to depend on a phone for this. I want to talk to someone. 
  • Stress and trauma are mileswide apart. Can one self help solution support both conditions?  
  • For some it may be a good approach. Kry.se seems to work. 
  • Yes, I think so 

Pre-prototype TTT

In the stand we also promoted Strikersofts Swipecare product that Praktikertjänst N.Ä.R.A. is using under the name STELPA. Wonderful people that have helped make the life 25% more effective when it comes to making patient journals together with the patient. Their representatives also said that a self help app for stress could fill a void in their operations, both for patients, relatives and staff.

This project “NYTT DIGITALISERAT STÖD FÖR EGENVÅRD MED FOKUS PÅ TRAUMA OCH STRESS” is going to be a really exciting project and journey together with EFT association, Strikersoft, Kaimuk and Peaceful Heart Network, to start with.

We are inviting a broader audience for dialogue meetings, whereafter we form a reference group. Out of that, some organizations willing to validate and integrate will form a consortium for validation and integration for a self-help solution in the next project phase (during 2018 and forwards).

I wish you all a nice long weekend! (at least Sweden has bank holiday 1st of May)
