Is there a new, closer, relationship growing between pharma and providers? This story of AZ providing health apps to Geisinger, a health system, sure seems to hint at it.
The app combines both patient-submitted and standard EHR data and manages it so it is useful to the HCP.
Doctors will be able to view the combined data either patient-by-patient or aggregated together, to better understand their patients’ asthma experience specifically and more broadly. Called the Provider Asthma Management Assistant, the web-based software tool works in real-time, allowing HCPs “to triage patients on the fly and bring in specialists as needed.”
Partnerships like this can really help patients, especially if they can escape the “eternal pilot” trap and move to a large number of providers.
