Analytics platform provider for healthcare, Medable, has released a cloud solution to enable Apple’s new CareKit Bridge APIs real time health management on iOS.
The system, called Synapse, lets healthcare providers easily configure and launch CareKit apps that track health in real-time. Providers are able to prescribe a treatment plan to a patient through an app, then track and monitor treatment activities.
Healthcare organisations can launch CareKit apps for patients as well as care teams. Medable hopes that the ability to track health management in real time will address cost issues from poor communication, including preventable readmissions.
As well as app creation, Synapse provides user and data management, HIPAA compliance, EMR interoperability and outcomes analytics.
Dr. Michelle Longmire, Medable CEO, said: “Too often the care delivered within the walls of hospitals is undermined by a lack of clear guidance for patients after visits. Medable’s platform, built using CareKit, allows healthcare organisations to open the door for clear and continuous care, anytime, anywhere.”
Longmire continued: “CareKit is a powerful tool for improving health outcomes and is a practical solution for harnessing innovation to address huge, long standing problems in healthcare. As an industry, healthcare is realising the power of mobile as a conduit for better healthcare.”
