Health Data Portal Aids Spinal Cord Rehab

Get Real Health broadened its patient scope by developing a pilot program for MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital (MedStar NRH) targeted at improving access to health data for patients with spinal cord injury (SCI). The project focused on giving patients a real-time view of their overall health outside facility walls and care management tools to take the next steps toward recovery.

The initial pilot phase, launched in October, was offered to a handful of patients as a way to measure ease of use and garner feedback from actual users’ experience. The feedback collected will help shape future phases in anticipation of the portal being released to a wider group.

Powered by Get Real Health’s patient engagement platform,InstantPHR®, the solution serves as one hub to house data culled from MedStar NRH’s electronic medical record system, results from labs, medication information, patient-generated data as well as relevant educational content.

“This type of portal will empower those with SCI to monitor their health remotely, cutting down on the labor-intensive in-office visit. Providers will also benefit, as they can view up-to-the-minute patient data that will assist in early detection of harmful trends so they can intervene if necessary,” said Get Real Health President and CEO Robin Wiener.
