Connect the Kids

Child and youth services support 1.6 million young people - tendency rising. We support them in the digitalization process.

The Situation

The corona crisis shows it more than ever - analogue is outdated

Therapy and care are currently experiencing a shock. Due to the quarantine, therapists are separated from their clients. Communication is not standardized, the processes are analogous.

In the child and youth welfare services, therapists support the young people on their way to an independent and organized life. The potentials that digitalization offers in this process are currently untapped.

  • About two million addressees for children and youth Services.
  • About one million therapists.
  • No solution that connects both.

Our Solution

Digitally augmented therapy. No paperwork.

Our tool connects child- and youth services therapists with their patients. This way, the personal contact gets digitally augmented. Pedagogic concepts and therapy pathways get gamified, analogous processes get digitalized.

On one side, the administrative hassle gets reduced. This means as a therapist you have more time to focus on what actually matters, the patients. On the other side, new ways of communication are established. This is especially important during quarantine, but also aids in optimizing the therapy workflow under normal circumstances.

We re connecting therapists and patients.

Over 90% of young adults own a smartphone. Less than 10% of the tools available for child and youth services are actually catered towards them.

App Features

We aggregated a lot of processes used in stationary and ambulant care.

Bi-directional Feedback

Patient needs are important. Likewise, the therapist's feedback. We are combining both in one platform.

Gamified Lifegoals

Longterm planning is difficult. We help by splitting up marathons into small sprints.

Digital Patient Profiles

So all the great achievements do not get lost, and therapists can keep an overview.

Playful Forming of Habits

Forming habits through repetition - playfully. We are wrapping boring task and routines into engaging assignments. Time to level up.

Synchronized Calendars

More often than not, two therapists work with the same patient. Exchanging appointments is done via phone or chat. We are synchronizing your appointments digitally - platform based. No overlaps, no confusion.

The Prototype

Our first prototype primarily deals with the gamification of pre-existing routines, goals, and road-maps that have been predetermined by therapists and their patients. Through playful forming of habits, the patients receive a positive reinforcement in therapy through each and every one of their steps towards success, while the therapists get the tools they need to monitor progress and mood and communicate in one platform.

Functionality and rapid prototyping take pretence over polishing and looks during this stage of the development.

The Team

Our interdisciplinary team is consists of a tried and tested core team, and several skilled helpers. During the #WirVsVirus hackathon by the german government, we channelled our knowledge and skills and created Commissura.
