iHealth Partners with Evernote and Practice Fusion to Bring Doctors and Patients Better Data for Healthier Living

Information from iHealth's wireless scales, blood pressure monitors and other personal health devices will help consumers remember everything and doctors to track health changes automatically.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- iHealth Labs Inc., the pioneering designer and manufacturer of mobile personal healthcare products for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, today announced a new partnership with Evernote, the company that's helping the world remember everything, and Practice Fusion, the largest doctor-patient community. This new partnership lets consumers track and share their results in Evernote, and enables the efficient communication of relevant health information between patients and their physicians in Practice Fusion.

"iHealth's products make it simple to track personal health information, including weight, blood pressure, blood glucose  and more with easy-to-use devices that provide valuable information," said Adam Lin, general manager of iHealth Labs. "But that information is even more useful when paired with popular services such as Practice Fusion's Electronic Medical Record, or Evernote's application which make it easy to remember almost everything."

Evernote users will see their iHealth readings show up in their personal Evernote account as a Results Card, with weight and BMI data for scales, and systolic and diastolic readings along with pulse rate for blood pressure. For blood pressure readings, the Results card also displays a helpful graph showing relative results and level of hypertension. Users have the ability to annotate the individual Results Cards with additional information within Evernote. At the end of each week, a summary card is generated in Evernote that shows the week's data at-a-glance.

"Evernote puts all the information that's important to you at your fingertips via almost any device," said Alex Pachikov, VP of Partnerships, Evernote. "Integrating with iHealth means important health data can be saved alongside other relevant information in Evernote. Through that context and instant accessibility, those metrics become even more meaningful to users over time."

iHealth's new partnership with Practice Fusion will encompass two initiatives to start. First off, medical professionals looking for ways to empower their patients to track and improve their own health can now provide them with special offers and access to order iHealth devices directly through Practice Fusion. In the near future, the data tracked by iHealth's products will seamlessly flow into the Practice Fusion Patient Health Record (PHR), Patient Fusion, delivering a more complete picture of a person's vitals and facilitating improved communication between patients and their clinical care team.

"Practice Fusion enables the secure and speedy flow of electronic health records between patients and caregivers," said Todd Martin, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Practice Fusion. "Partnering with iHealth improves our offering by combining our shared vision of efficient healthcare, where patients play an active role in monitoring their health, are empowered with knowledge and can communicate with their caregivers easily and efficiently."

iHealth Labs is demonstrating these new partnerships and their latest medical devices at the mHealth conference in Washington, D.C. this week, appearing in booth 1212.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
