Impact of Exercise on Progression of Neurodegenerative Disease

UCLA partnered with HexCare to utilize wearable technology to assess the impact of exercise on Alzheimer’s disease. Patients with Alzheimer’s disease were enrolled to determine the impact of activity level on functional brain imaging studies.

Challenges Overcome

1. Lack of established standard for exercise capacity in neurodegenearative disease
2. Poor smartphone penetration

Overview

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles partnered with Qolty, utilizing a multimodal approach to encourage and monitor weight loss in an obese pediatric population. 120 children are enrolled in this trial to identify activity patterns critical to meaningful weight loss.

Challenges Overcome

1. Low-income patient population
2. Poor internet access
3. Lack of mobile phone penetration

EASI PRO

By | Uncategorized

Overview

Qolty is a subcontractor for EHR Access to Seamless Integration of PROMIS (EASI-PRO), which will make it easier for researchers and clinicians to collect patient reported outcomes information and use it to improve clinical care and research. By only asking the most relevant questions, PROMIS has the potential to make the surveys up to 10 times shorter, so it is less of a burden on those taking it.

Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) are a set of NIH sponsored computerized survey tools that changes depending on the patient’s answers, and will be integrated into the Electronic health records of 10 universities across the United States.

The best possible experiences for patients

and for your study

USC is collaborating with Qolty to integrate patient-reporated outcomes into Cerner. Qolty will provide patients with a smartphone app where they can take PROs from home. The responses will be securely sent into Cerner, where clinicians can view the data and make decisions that will improve patient care and improve outcomes.
