BSmart Chart App Risk Calculator: Empowering PLHIV and Healthcare Workers for Informed HIV Management
June 13, 2023
Living with HIV necessitates meticulous management, proactive measures to preserve health and well-being, and a comprehensive understanding of associated risks such as cardiovascular disease (CVD), metabolic syndrome, loss to follow-up, hospitalisation, and non-adherence.
Assessing and managing CVD risk in people living with HIV (PLHIV) presents challenges due to the intricate interplay of traditional risk factors, HIV-related factors, and potential drug interactions.
Monitoring and addressing metabolic syndrome in individuals with HIV pose significant hurdles, as antiretroviral medications can contribute to metabolic abnormalities, including dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, and abdominal obesity. Achieving a balance between the benefits of effective HIV treatment and potential metabolic side effects necessitates vigilant monitoring and tailored interventions. Encouraging adherence to antiretroviral therapy and ensuring regular medical visits present ongoing challenges in maintaining adherence and preventing loss to follow-up.
In the world we live in today, technology has revolutionised the way we approach healthcare, and incorporating technology into risk assessment for PLHIV brings numerous benefits to individuals seeking proactive management of their health. We can now harness the power of technology to empower individuals to manage their health proactively using an app like the BSmart Chart App.
The BSmart Chart App has Risk Calculators feature designed to empower PLHIV by providing them with personalised insights into the risk of developing complications related to their condition. It assesses each individual’s risk profile and generates an easy-to-understand risk score, evidence-based strategies, timely reminders, and potential risks.
It helps in calculating cardiovascular and metabolic syndrome risks, which enables patients to have more proactive health management as well as facilitates a holistic approach to patient care, early intervention, and patient education, thereby allowing healthcare workers to identify individuals who may be at higher risk of developing CVD and/or metabolic syndrome for targeted preventive measures.
With the BSmart Chart App Risk Calculator feature, health workers and individuals with HIV can now receive comprehensive care that addresses not only viral suppression but also the overall well-being and long-term health of those with this chronic condition.
Our easy-to-understand screen app designs with necessary information enable both patients and healthcare workers to access crucial medical data and communicate seamlessly, fostering a more efficient and patient-centred healthcare experience.
While this feature promotes open communication and empowerment between individuals and health workers, it also contributes to resource allocation and strengthens prevention strategies, with the ultimate goal of ending the HIV epidemic at a broader level.
All you have to do is download the BSmart Chart app, input relevant information such as age, gender, CD4 count, viral load, and other pertinent medical details into the app, and embark on a journey of comprehensive HIV management like never before!
