eClinicalWorks’ wholly-owned subsidiary is adding support for popular wearable devices and fitness trackers, including those made by Fitbit, iHealth, Jawbone and Withings. Data from these devices will integrate into a consumer’s personal health record (PHR) via healow.com and healow mobile app, as well as be available to that person’s medical provider.
It is said (proven) that monitoring daily habits leads to healthier choices, specifically for patients living with chronic diseases. Linking a medical provider to these results improves outcomes by keeping the provider informed as well as enabling them to flag specific changes.
“By giving consumers a single place to view their health records along with device and tracker data, it simplifies managing this information while keeping the quarterback of care, their physician, in the loop,” said Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “Giving physicians a better informed idea of patient activities throughout the year can dramatically improve recommendations and outcomes. We are looking forward to teaming up with leading device companies in order to help healow evolve and make tracking healthcare easier for both patients and providers.”
