- the user’s medication, associated therapy plans and the status of intakes,
- health parameters, measurements and symptoms (e.g. blood pressure, weight, mood, pain),
- contact details of medical professionals and appointments scheduled with them.
In order to achieve the above, the app uses medical guidelines, scientifically verified information and recommendations from professional societies to evaluate and compare the user’s input with those data. On this basis, in addition to the self-recorded data, the user is provided with situation-related, understandable information and / or recommendations for action that support him in his role as an informed and confident patient, for example for the communication with medical professionals. This can also increase patient safety and improve the health-related quality of life.

The app cannot take medical decisions for the user and must not be used as the sole basis for medical decisions. Achieving the above-mentioned goal is the responsibility of the user and the attending healthcare professionals and can only be supported by the app. The user should always consult medical professionals if in doubt, if he needs medical advice or if he wants to change the planned preventive, health or therapeutic measures.
