DOCCs

Digital Online Care Communities

Chronic medical conditions can impact all aspects of patients' lives.

Digital Online Care Communities (DOCCs) are designed to support patients with these conditions in order to create communities, improve care, and conduct research.

 

The DOCCs Platform

These goals are achieved using a secure, patient-reported, online profile to fully describe the impacts of a chronic condition. This profile allows patients to tell their story in enough detail to be meaningful and actionable for patients themselves, care providers, and researchers.

Improving Care

Patients can choose to share their data with their providers to improve communication and care.

Creating Community

Patients can connect with others to build support and discuss issues critical to living with their condition.

Fostering Research

Researchers can use de-identified data to study the impact of a disease from the clinic level to the overall population level.

Our Process

Creating the Protocol

Clinicians and researchers work with us to develop a protocol and an online profile that is broad enough to fully understand how a specific condition affects all aspects of patients’ lives. We manage the IRB approval process.

Partnering with clinics to enroll patients

Specialists and clinics treating a disease actively support the community, promote it to their patients, and enlist them to enroll.

Completing the Online Profile

Participants complete the profile online with a user-friendly and secure interface.

Benefitting from the DOCCs platform

Patients, providers, and researchers gain access to the many benefits of being a member of a Digital Online Care Community.
