Agenda ICIC 2016


Portavita Integrated Care System (ICS), our web-based solution for prevention, treatment and healthcare management in a coordinated way. The patients and all involved practitioners use the underlying Electronic Health Record.

We provide a co-operation platform to support primary processes, patient self-management and healthcare organisations with their reporting, research and financial-data needs. Our solution has an integrated messaging system, an authorisation and workflow engine and e-Learning modules.

Input of leading medical professionals and their patients is the basis for the current modules of the system: Anticoagulation, Asthma/COPD, Cardiovascular Risk Management, Diabetes and Elderly Care


Health of people requires good cooperation between patients and their involved practitioners, irrespective of time and place.


Portavita solutions support thousands of medical organisations since 2002. Currently our Dutch, German, Russian and South American customers support over 500.000 patients. They work in a multi-organisational and multi-disciplinary setting. Within these healthcare organisations, 10.000 medical professionals and over 100.000 participating self-management patients use our online solution on a daily basis. These organisations achieve over 80% of patients, treated with Oral AC, to be in their therapeutic range (TTR). In most countries worldwide this is on average 10% lower*. Many countries are performing even seriously lower at higher cost per monitored patient. *German study of Dr. Koerte, a German study of dr. Hortkotte and a large retrospective study of Dr. Boulanger in the United States. 


Amongst others our partners are Philips Healthcare, Roche Diagnostics and Deutsche Telekom Health Solutions.

Business Model

Together with our local partner we organise a total solution, including medical care providers responsible for the treatment, devices, medication, reimbursement, Standard Operation Procedures, education and ICT. Portavita offers its platform on a “pay per use” basis. One-time investments are related to translation, local hosting, training and potential adaption to the local protocols.

We look for Partners

Do you see an opportunity for improved patient treatment, a business case, using the Portavita Integrated Care System? Our Platform can be an add-on for applications that you already use, or it might offer you the possibility to collaborate on a specific clinical picture. Or perhaps it could support you in the improvement of the treatment of patients who live in rural areas. Just feel free to contact us to discuss how we can help realise your goals.
