The greatest benefit of patient self-monitoring is that quality of life will improve significantly. Studies show that patients find it important to be able to measure immediately in the event of uncertainty, that they experience more freedom and that they can deal with changes in medication more easily.

For Lithium patients, the FISIC Lemli patient platform is available. Here the measurement results can be viewed and shared with the practitioner. Sharing with the practitioner is done on the initiative of the patient. In addition extra information about lithium, the Fisic Medimate, and the interpretation of the lithium results can be found here. It is also possible to use an electronic diary or to make notes of the medication taken.
To a limited extent, the Medimate is available in the Netherlands in a study for patients who want to measure their lithium at home. If you want to express your interest in participating, please let us know. Click on the button "I want to participate in the home study".
