Chronic diseases in children

Raising a child with a chronic condition is both a challenging mission and an emotional roller coaster. While it is accompanied by a stronger sense of purpose, it also brings higher parental responsibilities, instinctive worry and increased level of stress. In a meta-analysis published in 2019 by Cohn et al. in Journal of Pediatrics, the authors suggest that parents of children with chronic conditions have higher levels of morbidity, including anxiety disorders, depression, cardiovascular diseases and even higher mortality, when compared to general population. 


Besides the inherent challenges of the situation, in a lot of communities parents also have to face social stigma, which unfortunately remains a reality for chronic disabilities. Stronger feelings of loneliness and self-doubt can only entail a suboptimal capacity to handle the child's medical care, which in turn can have significant effects on his wellbeing.

About KIDoc

In order to assist parents in their journey, we are building KIDoc, a platform designed by medical professionals and technical experts, tackling several aspects of care. 


KIDoc Together allows streamlined communication with the entire medical team looking after the patient, including medical doctors and, depending on the disease, other professionals, such as psychologists, kinesyotherapists on Speech and Language therapists. Additionally, KIDoc Together provides access to a dedicated parent community.


KIDoc Medication is a tool designed for treatment administration. By providing parents with quick and easy-to-understand guidelines, setting specific alerts and introducing gamification aspects, we aim to increase medication adherence and treatment efficiency overall. 


KIDoc Digital is a secure and easy-to-use platform for storage and exchange of medical documents. Since several countries have on-going processes of digitalization in the healthcare system, this can be a professional alternative to Electronic Health Records.


Besides the generic platform, we are building specialized toolkits for different pathologies with specific challenges. KIDoc Plus will include parameter measurements, such as glycemic values for diabetic children or seizure recordings for epileptic patients. The medication tool will also be tailored to their specific needs.
