Combined offering allows providers to automatically import critical health data into patient care plans
September 10, 2014 (Austin, Texas) – Filament Labs today announced the integration of its Patient IO care delivery platform with Apple’s newly announced HealthKit, enhancing the ability of health professionals to manage patient health behaviors between doctor visits. Integrating HealthKit with the Patient IO platform will allow providers to automatically pull critical health data from a patient’s HealthKit-supported device and import the details directly into the patient’s individual care plan.
“We are excited to be one of the first companies to offer a patient engagement platform integrated with Apple’s HealthKit,” said Filament Labs CEO and Cofounder Jason Bornhorst. “Having a patient’s care plan automatically populated with current, accurate and complete data will help providers monitor patient adherence to treatment plans and in turn improve patient outcomes.”
Patient IO helps health professionals create personalized care plans that can be seamlessly delivered to patients outside of the clinic setting. The platform’s mobile care plans enable patient self-care and unlock superior data insights about adherence and patient health outside the clinic.
For patients, Patient IO enables doctors to deliver treatment-specific tasks, reminders and educational content directly to patients’ or their caregivers’ smartphones. Patient IO synthesizes multiple care plans from multiple providers into a unified set of daily tasks for the patient. Health professional can review submitted health information in real-time as patients complete their care plan.
“The integration between Patient IO and Apple’s HealthKit allows patients to provide their care team with real-time health information updates, such as glucose levels and blood pressure, without having to launch the Patient IO app,” said Colin Anawaty, Filament Labs Chief Product Officer and Cofounder. “Providers can then be automatically alerted should a patient require their increased attention.”
Patient IO is a drop-in solution for care plan delivery that works seamlessly with third-party health IT solutions. Using the Patient IO API, other healthcare IT vendors can take advantage of Apple’s HealthKit by sending their patient care plans through the Patient IO platform.
Filament Lab will launch the integration of Patient IO with HealthKit following Apple’s release of iOS 8. Existing Patient IO providers will automatically receive the update, while prospective care team providers may contact Filament Labs to learn more about connecting HealthKit and their patient care plans.
