CarePassport®, a Boston-based patient engagement solutions developer, announced that Massachusetts General Hospital, a founding hospital of Partners HealthCare, will begin using CarePassport’s digital health platform for patient monitoring and engagement in research studies. With the revolution of Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR)-enabled applications, Massachusetts General Hospital, the largest hospital-based research program in the United States, selected CarePassport to enhance its research processes in clinical trials by enabling two-way communication with patients and collecting more structured health data throughout the patient’s medical journey.
CarePassport is a patient-centric platform designed to address the challenges of healthcare content management, from medical images to multimedia files, health exams and visit reports. The platform integration framework is a suite of solutions that providers can customize for specific use cases. The open-architecture modular design means the app can interface with third-party systems, breaking down data silos from different departments and across multiple facilities. The app connects with wearable and home-based monitoring devices, helping to gather and transfer patients’ medical data including imaging, medications, vitals, etc. CarePassport also enables healthcare facilities to send surveys, educational material and discharge summaries to patients regularly to follow up during research studies or after medical visits.
Who is CarePassPort? A healthcare app founded in 2016, the venture has raised $2.1 million according to website Crunchbase.
