Howard University Hospital and NoMoreClipboard Deploying Mobile PHR to Help Prevent Diabetes in At-Risk Young Adults

Washington - June 20, 2013 - According to the Centers for Disease Control, 53 percent of individuals with diabetes in the District of Columbia are obese and 82.5 percent are either overweight or obese. In addition, hypertension and diabetes are co-morbid in 62 percent of adults in the District of Columbia, indicating that patients with the highest rates of weight issues are also at the highest risk for chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension.

Wards 4 through Ward 8, the poorest in Washington, have the highest concentration of African Americans and the highest rates of obesity among those with diabetes. In response, Howard University Hospital’s Diabetes Treatment Center today announced a program to deploy a mobile personal health record from NoMoreClipboard to help overweight, pre-diabetic young adults make lifestyle changes aimed at preventing diabetes.

African-American patients between the ages of 18 and 24 diagnosed with pre-diabetes will be provided a free NoMoreClipboard personal health record (PHR) they can access on their smartphones, as well as a FitBit Zip wireless activity tracker that monitors steps, distance and calories burned.

Tracked data will synchronize wirelessly with the PHR, and this data will be available to clinical personnel at the Howard Diabetes Treatment Center, who will provide coaching to participants. Data captured in the electronic health record used by the Diabetes Treatment Center will populate the PHR, and patients can share their information with any other healthcare provider they visit.

Text message alerts will be sent to remind patients to interact with the PHR, and 75 health and behavioral tips will be sent via text at periodic intervals to participants over the course of a year.

"Several studies have demonstrated that obesity related morbidity and mortality can be significantly reduced through lifestyle modification and education," said Dr. Gail Nunlee-Bland, director of the Diabetes Treatment Center. "Plus, cell phones are portable and widely accepted by young adults and can serve as an effective communication vehicle in providing consistent health care information from provider to patient, which is often lacking in our health care system."

NoMoreClipboard and ICA to Collaborate on Health Information Exchange and Patient Engagement Opportunities

Fort Wayne, Ind. - June 11, 2013 - NoMoreClipboard and ICA, a provider of interoperability technology that enables care coordination and health information exchange (HIE), today announced a strategic agreement that will capitalize on integrating ICA HIE offerings with NoMoreClipboard personal health record (PHR) and patient portal solutions. By combining ICA technology with patient-facing applications from NoMoreClipboard, HIEs, hospitals, health systems, providers, communities and ACOs can improve electronic communication with patients and meet the patient engagement requirements in meaningful use stage two.

"ICA and NoMoreClipboard are already working together on several projects with HIE and health system clients, and we have quickly come to appreciate our respective commitment to standards-based interoperability," said Gary Zegiestowsky, CEO of ICA. "We are working on everything from Direct to XDS information exchange, with a focus on making HIE and provider data available to patients in a secure, electronic format. We are formalizing our collaboration to help our respective clients qualify for meaningful use and engage patients looking for easier ways to access, organize and manage health information."

"As electronic patient engagement gains traction, there is a real opportunity for HIEs and forward thinking providers to offer patients portable solutions that enable them to access and share data across the care continuum," said NoMoreClipboard president Jeff Donnell. "ICA is adept at managing patient information, and we are working together to put that information in the hands of patients who can then take a more active role in managing health and wellness."

ICA and NoMoreClipboard are currently working on projects for several mutual clients including the Kansas Health Information Network, the statewide HIE in Kansas, and Meridian Health, a leading New Jersey health system.
