Deloitte ConvergeHEALTH Patient Connect™ Now Integrates Apple HealthKit, CareKit and ResearchKit
BOSTON, June 18, 2018 — Deloitte has integrated its ConvergeHEALTH Patient Connect product with Apple HealthKit, CareKit and ResearchKit frameworks, enabling patients to improve adherence to treatment plans while supporting connectivity to clinical research. This is the latest in a series of innovative additions to the ConvergeHEALTH product portfolio. ConvergeHEALTH is a group of products engineered and built by Deloitte to enable life sciences clients to respond to the shift to value-based, personalized medicine.
In addition, Deloitte is expanding its Apple practice, a dedicated team of health care app developers in the Deloitte Digital studios. “This dedicated team of UI, UX and iOS engineers will specialize in developing health care-specific digital apps to transform the patient experience,” said Mike Brinker, global Deloitte Digital leader and principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP.
“There is a convergence happening across the health care ecosystem and Apple devices help put the patient at the center in full control of their health information. The digitization and consumerization of health care is changing all aspects of the industry including the way patients, providers and life sciences innovators interact,” said Brett Davis, ConvergeHEALTH general manager and principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “We are committed to improving patient lives through our investments in ConvergeHEALTH platforms such as Patient Connect, which enable the individual to digitally connect with their care and improve their patient journey.”
“Patients’ expectations for more personalized services are one of the driving forces behind health care’s overall transformation toward more patient-centric care models. By integrating ConvergeHEALTH Patient Connect, which supports 300,000 patients globally, with Apple’s health frameworks, care coordinators can better manage their patient population by proactively engaging with their patients using their Apple devices and meeting those growing patient expectations,” said Chris Zant, life sciences global digital and patient engagement leader, and principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP.
According to recent publications, digitally connected patient-centric platforms can improve the patient experience and possibly outcomes. iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and their associated apps are playing an increasingly impactful role in improving patient lives by making health data available to their caregivers and, ultimately, for future research and innovation. By integrating with ConvergeHEALTH Patient Connect, life sciences innovators have an opportunity to engage and support patients in new ways.
