EPICO (EPIlepsy COmmunication chAnnel) is an all in one platform to establish a direct communication channel between patients and their doctors, aiming at improving the quality of life of epileptic patients and better managing their disease and lets doctors have wider know-how about their patients and the epilepsy disorder. The final goal is to reduce the number of epileptic crisis in patients and reduce the number of emergency consultations related to epilepsy. The EPICO platform is composed of three main components:
EPICO App allows patients to log their seizures and to keep records of the seizure length, type, potential triggers, a description of associated symptoms and it also integrates with sleep tracker bands.
As a new event is recorded by EPICO App, a notification is sent to EPICO Doc, so that doctors are aware of the progress of the disease of their patients and can prescript them better treatment.
The third component of the platform is EPICO Cloud that stores the data and communicates with the external world.
A successful trial was run recently with over 100 patients with epilepsy from the Hospital Santa Lucia de Cartagena in Spain.
EPICO has improved the communication between doctors and epileptic patients
