Congestive Heart Failure Monitoring after Discharge with Apple CareKit and Apple Watch

Wearable health technology is another step in the direction of bringing the doctor’s office home with you and making health service ubiquitous. A big focus and theme in recent digital health interventions, as well as other health technology innovations in general, has been continuing care and contact outside the confines of the office. This started with small steps, mainly education that was accessible anywhere and has leaped to being able to take vitals and diagnostics from the comfort of your own home, load the data into your smartphone or computer and then share it with your doctor. If that’s not enough, we can now use this data and set parameters to alert the doctor if anything is wrong, completely automating the monitoring process. One of the issues with our rapidly advancing technologies is that we have not quite caught up yet. We have a number of technologies at our disposal, yet we still use them similarly to how we use antiquated technologies. Many people have scales that sync to their smartphone, yet still simply look at the number and either smile or frown then go about their day. Patients have heart rate monitors that they only really pay attention to while they’re exercising or use as a novelty. Even many diabetics still take their blood glucose level multiple times per day via finger tip pen prick, write down their...

ONC Guidelines for Doctella

Doctella’s Implementation of ONC Guidelines ONC has published guidelines that health care apps should adhere too. Patient Doctor Technologies, Inc. owner and operator of Doctella has not obtained formal certification of adherence to ONC guidelines. However Doctella has taken great care to make sure the application meets and exceeds ONC recommendations fitting for Doctella’s target use cases for patients. Below is an overview of Doctella’s adherence to ONC guidelines. 45 CFR 170.315 (b)(6) (Data Portability): Providers and Patients can export their data via PDF from the system. ONC recommends the system should have ability to export data as CCD however in the case of Doctella this not relevant because Doctella only has patient actions in response to digital interventions sent by the doctor. There is no standard for patient actions described in CCD format. We are planning to submit a proposal to HL7 working groups to create a standard format for patients actions. 45 CFR 170.315 (d)(1) (Access Control): The system only shows data based on user access privileges. Access is based on privileges that can be traced to each patient’s authorization and consent to share data with a group of providers or caregivers. 45 CFR 170.315 (d)(2) (Auditable Events): Each event is logged and stored for future audit if required 45 CFR 170.315 (d)(3) (Audit Reports): Appropriately privileged users can create reports to review and analyze audit reports....
