Effort utilizes Phreesia's automated patient check-in system to enable

better management of medication wear-off

NEW YORK, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Phreesia, Inc., the Patient Check-In Company, has announced that it will integrate a new screening tool developed by researchers at Duke University Medical Center into its electronic patient intake process, thereby potentially enhancing the ability of doctors to identify and manage the debilitating symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

Affecting about one million people in the United States, Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder that impairs nerve cells causing patients to experience tremors, slowness of movement, muscle rigidity, and difficulty with balance. Drug therapy is highly effective, but within 2 years of initiating treatment up to 50% of patients can experience a decrease in drug efficacy, a phenomenon that is referred to as "wearing-off".

"Recognition of wearing-off and under treatment in Parkinson's disease patients is a major problem", said Mark Stacy, MD, Director of the Movement Disorders Center at Duke University's School of Medicine. Research has shown that nearly half of all patients that report wearing-off are not identified in a routine clinical exam. To help address this inconsistency, Phreesia will automate the "Wearing-Off Questionnaire-9" (WOQ-9), a highly sensitive screening tool specifically designed by researchers at Duke to identify these symptoms in the clinical setting.

Frequently, paper screening tools are cumbersome to implement clinically. As part of Phreesia's electronic patient intake system patients with Parkinson's disease will answer questions from the WOQ-9 and the results will be made available to their physician prior to starting the clinical exam.
