As one of the first clinical practice tools to build a simple, elegant work flow enabling patient-physician communication and patient-centered decision making, CyberDoctor is at Health 2.0 Europe to demonstrate how they’re improving patient awareness, adherence, and outcomes.
NIraj Katwala represented Healthline as the session sponsor. The session began with the “Rising Stars” segment, moderated by Indu Subaiya. Indu curated a panel focused entirely on a generation of young entrepreneurs in health technology, thus called “rising stars.” Featured for their progressive technologies was Akhila Satish of CyberDoctor and Pelu Tran of Augmedix. Akhila demonstrated CyberDoctor’s new adherence application game, PatientPartner, in which the player can see how certain decisions directly affect their life. Pelu showed how Google Glass is being used in a clinical setting to increase physician facetime with their patients.
Indu then segued into the next portion of the session, introducing the WeightLess Project, with Poonacha Machaiah. In the WeightLess Project the overweight of the world give to the malnourished. Beneficial to both groups with opposite problems, “The Weightless Project” brings a certain currency as calorie lost is converted to calorie gained. This project served as a good link to the third part of the session, Around the World: International, which focused on companies and individuals helping the underserved around the world.
The International panel was moderated by James Mathews, the Chairman of the Health 2.0 chapter in India. It featured James Nardella, Mark Friess, and Ravi Kumar as speakers, and demonstrations from Ram Gopalan of Argusoft, James Nardella of the Lwala Community Alliance, and Donato Tramuto of Physicians Interactive.
Akhila Satish has spent her entire career in health care. Following her research at the National Institutes of Health, she studied decision-making processes among health care providers. She holds a deep belief that health care communication can and should be streamlined in a meaningful way; based on this belief she founded CyberDoctor in 2009. At CyberDoctor, her passion for a seamless patient experience is only matched by her deep understanding of the need for provider efficiency and effectiveness. She demonstrated their new adherence app, PatientPartner, for Health 2.0. Users choose a character they identify with and follow that character through certain decisions, seeing how those decisions can affect their life.
As one of the first clinical practice tools to build a simple, elegant work ow enabling patient-physician communication and patient-centered decision making, CyberDoctor is breaking new ground in improving patient awareness, adherence and outcomes. Today Akhila and Mantosh are excited to unveil their brand new CyberDoctor iPad application.
