Get Real Health to Partner with Immune Deficiency Foundation
Date:7/22/2014

Rockville, Maryland (PRWEB) July 22, 2014

Get Real Health announced today a new partnership with the Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) to provide their patient community with a new web and mobile portal that will allow them to electronically track their symptoms, medications and other health-related information—enabling them to better manage their illnesses. It will also allow those patients and families who want to participate in research, to consent to have their data shared with the U.S. Immunodeficiency Network (USIDNET) registry, a program of the National Institutes of Health that contains patient clinical data validated by physicians.

IDF contracted with Get Real Health to completely transform their current Electronic Personal Health Record, to provide a more user-friendly patient portal for its community that would allow them to easily enter information anywhere, anytime from their mobile devices, including smart phones and tablets. Get Real Health configured its flagship product, InstantPHR®, to do just this. “We’re really excited to work with IDF,” said Jason Harmon, Chief Technology Officer of Get Real Health. “This is a unique partnership for us because it gives us the opportunity to help an entire community better manage their health while also contributing to research that can potentially result in earlier diagnoses and better treatment.”

With the InstantPHR-powered portal, which will become the IDF ePHR, patients with primary immunodeficiency and their families will be able to track their medications, log their infusions, answer surveys and questionnaires, enter information in their health journals, as well as take advantage of several other functionalities. It will also include a sync to Microsoft HealthVault’s ecosystem of devices, pharmacies and labs, and provider-to-patient emailing and access to additional health records through Blue Button Plus.

IDF contracted with Get Real Health after being awarded a grant by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to create a Patient Powered Research Network, called PI Connect, to link patient entered data and experiences with clinical information in the USIDNET patient consented registry. The hope is that InstantPHR’s more user-friendly web interface and mobile app will result in the PI community having a more robust ePHR, and at the same time participate in research. “There are more than 200 primary immunodeficiency diseases, and more than 250,000 people in the country diagnosed with them,” said Marcia Boyle, president and founder of IDF. “Because the symptoms of these diseases and their management vary so widely, we are excited about our new ePHR being developed by Get Real Health.

The IDF ePHR, based on Get Real Health’s InstantPHR platform will be available at no cost to the primary immunodeficiency community.

There are approximately 250,000 people who are diagnosed with a PI in the U.S. These individuals often find it difficult to receive specialized healthcare, proper diagnosis and treatment.
