Medable, a Palo Alto-based healthcare app and analytics platform has formed a strategic partnership with Redox, an EHR integration API platform for developers and healthcare organizations. The integration partnership will enable a fully-integrated medical research platform between smart phones and EHRs.
By using Medable’s platform and Redox’s API services, clinical trial leaders and health researchers can integrate patient-generated health data into the electronic health record. With the partnership, the two companies are identifying overlapping and potential customers and deploying their technologies to enable fully-integrated mobile clinical trial and clinical research applications.
Medable’s Axon enables any clinical researcher to build a fully HIPAA-compliant mobile application for study participation, without a developer. A process that used to take over six months can now be completed in a few hours, resulting in a mobile application that is proven to increase research participation and expand the scope of data collected. An application built using Axon enables mobile consent and patient reported data collection directly from participants as well enables additional data such as connected devices and activity and contextual data captured by the participant’s smart phone.
While Medable has seen rapid adoption by healthcare enterprises and researchers alike, EHR integration is an important advancement. By integrating data in the EHR, there is a unified source of record for a patient. Retrieving the data from the medical record enables Medable analytics capabilities to derive insights from the full suite of patient data collected within and outside of the walls of the hospital.
“Healthcare researchers want to leverage mobile to provide connected care and continuous data collection,” said Michelle Longmire, MD, Medable’s CEO in a statement. “It is important to maintain a source of record for every patient, and for patient generated data to really play a role in healthcare. We are excited to work with Redox to close the loop between mobile and the EMR both for the opportunity to provide better care and new insights from data.”
Founded in 2014 by former Epic Systems employees engineers, Redox integrates with all major EHR systems by connecting to existing health system infrastructure, significantly reducing implementation time by eliminating the need to account and configure for system variance. The API platform also enables app to push and pull patient data to and from the EHR, creating an expanded, more cohesive record of a patient’s health. As a result, Redox customers experience less disruption, see faster patient continuity of care benefits, and realize a quicker return on their investment.
