Philips tests diabetes app developed with Radboud UMC, Salesforce (NL)

Philips Healthcare unveiled a prototype of a diabetes tracking app that also links to a secured social ‘community’ at this past week’s Dreamforce 15 conference in San Francisco. It was developed in conjunction with Salesforce and the Radboud University Medical Center (NL). Philips claims the app is the first to collect and connect data from EMRs, multiple personal health devices and patient self-reported data, with the patient directing sharing via private messaging and shared posts with providers and fellow patients (‘community’). It is built on the HealthSuite Digital Platform which is a product of Philips’ collaboration with Salesforce. The app provides tracking information to the patient on blood glucose levels, insulin use, nutrition, physical activity, mood and stress. The patient also receives data-driven feedback and coaching guidance. It will be ready before end of this year in select non-US markets. At Dreamforce, Philips demo’d their joint Virtual Health Record initiative, which is being promoted as “a digital toolkit that makes it easy for health systems, institutions and care providers to utilize the power of the HealthSuite Digital Platform technology in dedicated localized solutions.” Release
