Regenstrief investigator a winner of Top 11 in 2011 Innovator Challenge
Date:12/5/2011

INDIANAPOLIS Regenstrief Institute investigator Martin Were, M.D., M.S., assistant professor of medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine, has been selected as a winner of the mHealth Alliance and Rockefeller Foundation's Top 11 in 2011 Innovators Challenge.

The Challenge's goal is to recognize individuals who have used mobile technology in innovative ways to improve health systems and outcomes particularly in the most remote areas of the world. The 11 winning innovators were determined by a combination of public and selection committee votes.

Dr. Were is being recognized for the development and evaluation of innovative mobile health solutions for use in resource-limited settings and for their large-scale deployment by the Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare. AMPATH, Kenya's most comprehensive initiative to combat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), is expanding its scope to include delivery of essential primary care services, and control of communicable diseases and non-communicable chronic illnesses.

Instead of chasing a paper chart, AMPATH clinicians using the new application can instantly access on a smartphone a wealth of patient-specific data including demographics, a patient's medical problems, laboratory results and medication adherence. The clinicians also receive just-in-time reminders and alerts when the system notices that substandard care is being offered such as when a scheduled test is overdue, or when a needed medication has not been started. The system not only helps clinicians with their work, it also has capabilities to enforce compliance with care guidelines. Additionally, clinicians can respond to the reminders by wirelessly printing from the smartphones requisitions for laboratory tests, with all patient information pre-filled in for them.

A second application for data collection has already been used by community health workers from AMPATH during home visits for HIV counseling
