TRANSFORMATIONS FROM THE UNHEALTHY IMAGE ON THE LEFT TO THE SAME MAN, MORE HEALTHY, ON THE RIGHT DON’T TAKE PLACE IN THE PHYSICIAN’S OFFICE.THESE KINDS OF CHANGES ARE THE RESULT OF AN ENGAGED INDIVIDUAL TAKING ACTION OUTSIDE OF THE PHYSICIAN’S IMMEDIATE CARE
The Blue Button approach is a simple concept: A patient is provided with a highly visible, clickable button to download his or her medical records in digital form from a secure website offered by their doctors, insurers, pharmacies or other health-related service. People can log into this secure website to view and have the option to download their health information, so they can examine it, check it, and share it with their doctors and others as they see fit. The Blue Button download capability is a tool that can help individuals get access to their information so they can more effectively participate in and manage their health and health care.
Recently at the Health Datapalooza the government shed light on vast troves of data available for developers to use for all kinds of healthcare benefits. Healthdata.gov is the front door to those troves, but you don’t have to use that data. If your state, locality, or other information source has publicly available data please feel free to use that. Feel free to team up with existing apps that may already be proficient in one of the three part aim categories.
Data from the three part aim categories:Does the app help individuals achieve least two components of the three-part aim?Does the app help individuals achieve all three components of the three-part aim?Commercialization plan:Thoughtful approach to commercializing the app.Viability of the plan and potential for broad adoption of the app.Viable plan for initial and ongoing technical and support capacity to meet anticipated app usage and future enhancement.Special consideration for demonstration of plans in place (e.g. letter of intent, formalized agreement).Is the app simple and intuitive to use? App is available on broadly-used platformApp must garner high patient engagement ratesUses Blue Button® downloads as the primary source of data about a consumer's health or health statusIs the app interactive with easily understood data mashups?How useful are each of the chosen mashups to a wide audience?Are specific actionable suggestions provided to the user based on meaningful mashups of Blue Button (consumer-specific) and other sources of data?
