Mobile App

As part of our multiannual action plan, the VASCERN eHealth Working Group has developed a free Mobile Application in order to enable patients and doctors to find and easily access all VASCERN Healthcare Provider (HCP) Members and Patient Organisations in Europe.

The app is now available on both IOS and Android!

  • The VASCERN App was officially launched in January 2019 and is available in the Google Play and Apple Store.
  • This was the first version of the VASCERN App and it was only available in English.
  • Since then, many improvements have been made and an updated version of the VASCERN mobile app (version 2.0) has been launched in August 2020.
  • In this second version, new features have been added:
    • The inclusion of our 7 new Affiliated Partner Centers.
    • The translation of the app’s structure and disease names into various EU languages so that the mobile app will launch in the user’s device language for easier navigation and searching (please note that the content of each HCP card/PO contact card is still in English so that this information is accessible to all).
    • The inclusion of Referral Centers (Ref HCPs): centers that cooperate with the VASCERN European Reference Centers (ERN Full Members and Affiliated Partners) as part of the national networks and that can provide expert care to patients for rare vascular diseases.
  • The App currently contains datasets from 35 HCP Full Members, 7 Affiliated Partners, 33 Referral Centers and 64 Patient Organisations.
  • VASCERN App is a modular platform, that will be developed incrementally during the VASCERN lifetime through progressive updates and inclusion of new services as well as new HCPs and Patient Organisations from all over Europe as VASCERN expands.

Version 2 of the VASCERN app is made possible by development work provided by Media 4 Health, datasets provided by our members, and management, data entry/quality control work by the VASCERN Coordination & Project Team. We equally thank Dr. Alessandro Pini, our VASCERN App Advisor, from IRRCS Policlinico San Donato, Italy. We would also like to thank our members for providing their data and helping us to test the second version before its release.

Media 4 Health is open to working with other ERNs who wish to create a similar mobile application in order to assist patients with their rare diseases. If interested please contact mario.mauri@m4h.it and info@m4h.it. If several ERNs are interested, they could enquire together as the project could benefit from economies of scale.

To our HCP, ePAG Members and users: if you have any comments & requests for changes regarding the information provided in the App, please contact us: vascern.coordination@aphp.fr
