POST-ICU DIGITAL DIARY
Coming together to fight Post Intensive Care Syndrome.
In early 2018, Marc Buise, ICU doctor at the Catharina Hospital, shared his idea with Games for Health
about developing a digital journal for ICU patients. This was to make life after ICU more bearable.
The Catharina Hospital at that time was using physical journals a lot, but the cut and paste work was really outdated. Something needed to change! The transition to a digital journal was kicked off.
In early 2020 the coronavirus overtook the whole world. For patients the virus resulted in lengthier stays in ICU. Patients were kept asleep for prolonged periods, and family members were unable to visit.
The demand for a digital Post-ICU journal was greater than ever. The team switched into top gear in order to get the journal with the hospitals as quickly as possible and one month later the Post-ICU journal of tomorrow was distributed amongst the different ICUs.
"We were so happy to see the results and everyone's reactions. Helping people: that is why we do it".
Jurriaan van Rijswijk, Founder Games for Health.
Games For Health and WMMC have signed a partnership agreement to roll the POST-ICU digital diary out
in the GCC, Asia and Turkey.
