LifeMap Solutions, a digital health pioneer and co-developer of ResearchKit-enabled app Asthma Health, has just announced that the company has worked with researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine to develop and launch MyHeart Counts 2.0.
This version of the ResearchKit app–which is driving one of the largest studies of cardiovascular health ever conducted–presents users with graphs that show how they compare to other users in terms of how many steps they take each day, how happy they are, how much they sleep and the quantity of vegetables they are eating.
Most notably, the app also features the Stanford Coaching Module, which includes personalized coaching that varies for each user, depending on his or her activity profile.
The coaching module will be rigorously studied and measured for its impact on changes in the activity levels of participants by researchers.
“The researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine have an unparalleled understanding of the value and impact of digital tools on medical research and patient health,” said Corey Bridges, CEO of LifeMap Solutions. “The co-developer relationship between our organizations is aimed at advancing scientific knowledge of major medical conditions through practical, effective, and engaging mHealth solutions.”
