BALTIMORE, Aug. 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital health technology leader WellDoc today announced a collaboration with Human API, the fastest-growing health data platform, through which the two companies will explore the unique integration of type 2 diabetes patient health data within WellDoc’s BlueStar digital therapeutic. Human API’s data platform will provide WellDoc with real-time access to comprehensive clinical patient data from its network of 15,000+ pharmacies, health systems and laboratories. The steady flow of data is shared within a highly secure environment that ensures protection of data and patient privacy.
“We are excited to partner with Human API and look forward to harnessing the power of its health technology platform to enhance our BlueStar digital therapeutic,” said WellDoc CEO Kevin McRaith. “Our companies have a unique synergy and are focused on capturing and relaying quality data that have the ability to help foster real and tangible outcomes to better the lives of patients. With the increased harmonization of this data through Human API, patients using BlueStar could obtain improved real-time feedback with greater convenience and their healthcare providers will have more accuracy when making decisions about ongoing care and treatment regimens.”
Through the Human API Data Platform, enterprises and applications can access and analyze comprehensive clinical data in real-time on more than 175 million covered lives from the Human API Health Data Network – a real-time, digital data network of more than 15,000 health systems, hospitals, clinics, labs, pharmacies, devices, and mobile health applications. By unifying and normalizing health data from across the entire ecosystem of care, Human API powers a complete, unified, longitudinal view of a consumer’s health.
WellDoc’s BlueStar digital therapeutic for adults with type 2 diabetes uses information entered by patients, such as blood glucose levels, to deliver helpful guidance, messages, educational tips, and motivation – in real time. By partnering with Human API, WellDoc will be able to seamlessly integrate medication, medical history and laboratory data from multiple sources with a patient’s consent but without requiring direct patient input – further optimizing the user experience and helping patients and their physicians make informed decisions.
"Through Human API’s work with industry leaders like WellDoc, we are providing unprecedented health data liquidity to create a more effective and personalized healthcare system and power frictionless, real time consumer and patient experiences,” said Andrei Pop, Chief Executive Officer of Human API.
