    Thirteen healthcare apps to watch



    BlueStar, AdventiaP3, The Happy MD

    Rick W. Finch, partner, National Institute of Collaborative Healthcare, says his favorite apps: (1) lead to preventive measures of some sort and (2) lead to showing a clinically related outcome.

    “For example, did the patients risk factors within different disease states diminish based on biometrics, advanced clinical protocols, adherence to guidelines, etc.?,” he asks. “Is this information seamlessly communicated/aggregated? And preferably, is the data interfaced directly through the EHR to cut down on human error? Ultimately, we have to make sure this great information we are providing goes beyond consumer awareness and becomes utilized into clinical treatments. And once we go beyond treating, to preventing, then, that’s when we’ll start to reap the true benefits of healthcare apps.”

    Finch’s picks are: 

    AdventiaP3. An electronic health record overlay that uses the most advanced laboratory and diagnostic technology to produce a clinical care plan for the provider (inclusive of pharmaceutical, exercise and dietary recommendations) that naturally leads the patient toward documented preventive measures and outcomes data aggregation. 

    BlueStar diabetes management app (WellDoc). This is prescribed by a healthcare provider and gives adults with type 2 diabetes a daily guided plan on their smart phone or computer to help manage diabetes.

    The Happy MD. Contains a number of resources and tools focused on reducing physician burn-out.
