A company called MedDiary is launching its mobile health Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform, consisting of a cloud-based portal for healthcare providers and a mobile app for patients.
This integrated offering allows healthcare providers to easily create a custom mobile health app for their patients and then monitor them remotely. Patients pay a $35 monthly in-app subscription fee for this “concierge level” service, $15 of which goes to providers for coordinating the care.
Patients pay a $35 monthly in-app subscription fee for this “concierge level” service, $15 of which goes to providers for coordinating the care.“Mobile health is quickly becoming an integral part of a patient’s treatment regimen,” said MedDiary CEO Mark Repko. “What’s been missing up until this point is a way for providers to truly prescribe a mobile health app to their patients, including app configuration, delivery and ongoing oversight. MedDiary offers a unique solution to this complex problem.”
MedDiary’s SaaS, the company argues, is best suited for applications in which patients need to intensely manage their health for a short period of time, while under the close supervision of a healthcare provider. Some of the examples include following hospital discharge instructions, managing a newly diagnosed chronic disease, following a complex medication regimen for cancer treatment, following a strict diet as directed by a bariatrician or registered dietitian, or following the care plan of a functional medicine practitioner or health coach.
The MedDiary platform currently offers seven different health management modules for use in creating the custom MedDiary mobile health app: food & nutrition, symptoms, medications, self-measurements, physical activity, sleep and bowel movements. Providers can select any combination of these modules and then further refine the specifications within each one to meet the individual needs of each patient. Moreover, entire care teams can collaborate in the creation of a coordinated care plan for the patient, which is then delivered through the MedDiary app.
“MedDiary is reinventing the way that healthcare providers and care teams deliver care plans to patients,” Repko concluded.
