Temedica and AbbVie Germany introduce a digital companion for patients with chronic inflammatory bowel conditions


  • The patient companion app is available to all patients aged 18 and above suffering from chronic inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) in Germany.
  • Approximately 400,000 Germans are affected by chronic inflammatory bowel diseases.
  • Integration of real-world evidence allows for individualized guidance and support of patients throughout their entire patient journey.


Temedica, a Munich-based health insights company, announces the launch of their digital patient companion app "Tami". The app was developed in collaboration with AbbVie Germany and is targeting the approximately 400,000 people in Germany suffering from chronic inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Tami is designed to help patients better manage their daily lives and provides them with personalized insights into their respective disease progression. The app offers a variety of different features, including the functionality to track individual symptoms and long-term disease course, as well as to identify potential influencing factors.
By connecting Temedica's real-world evidence platform "Permea" with the Tami app, Tami will be continuously enriched with valuable insights that arise from the linkage of relevant health-related real-world data. The collection and processing of this data fully comply with GDPR. Through Tami, patients gain direct access to relevant information about their individual disease course, possible influencing factors, and therapy-supporting measures. The data collected by Tami and Permea and the resulting scientific findings will also significantly contribute to gaining a comprehensive understanding of the care reality of IBD patients in Germany.
