Filament Labs announces 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. The integration 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 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 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 providers 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 information in real-time as patients complete their care plan.
“The integration between Patient IO and 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[JB1] ,” said Colin Anawaty, Filament Labs Chief Product Officer. “Providers can then be automatically alerted should a patient require their increased attention.”
Patient IO is a drop-in solution for 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 simply 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 iOS8.
