What are the are the objectives of Myotel?

The objective of the project is to validate the MyoTel tele-treatment service in two different health care systems over four different countries with the goal to prepare the group for the large-scale commercial deployment of the service.
For this, the market acceptability of the MyoTel service that enables subjects with neck shoulder complaints to receive personalised adjusted remotely supervised treatment during their daily activities will be evaluated in four different Centres of Excellence (CoE) and two different target groups:

To do so, patients will be randomized into two groups; either the MyoTel group or the control group (chance of 50%). Participants of the MyoTel group receive the four week MyoTel treatment. Participants of the control group will contain with their ‘usual’ care (a.e. physical therapy) and don’t receive the MyoTel treatment.
Effectiveness of the MyoTel service will be demonstrated from a clinical and economic point of view.  For this measurements will be obtained at baseline, immediately after the intervention (T0), at three and six month follow-up (T3 and T6).
When interested in the clinical validation please contact one of the Centres of Excellence (CoE) in the four countries (Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium or Germany).

The Myotel Deployment strategy

The Myotel project also develops a deployment strategy for the Myotel service in the four different countries. For this the various stakeholders involved in the Myotel service will be identified (e.g. insurance companies, occupational and health care providers, care organisations, network operators and industry) and will be actively involved to be able to overcome the barriers for effective application of E-health technology in care situations and main differences in the health and occupational care systems between countries will be taken into account. A generic high level business model and value network for Myotel will described qualitatively based on based on a multi method analysis of a Myotel business model survey, workshops, literature reviews and desk and case study research. Besides, a quantitative cost analysis related to the business model will be made and different possible business case alternatives coming out of this quantitative analysis will be described.
