Boston Children’s Hospital specialists in collaboration with Duke University Medical Center scientists have developed a Caremap app that helps parents to track health indicators of their child and pass data to medical workers.
The app is designed for parents whose children are gravely ill and need constant health monitoring.
It works on an Apple CareKit base. Apart from observing life readings and their passing, the app performs a role of a medical card (and even more): stores allergy records, medications intake, used gadgets and emergency actions.
Caremap has10 default metrics (sleep, pain threshold, mood, etc.). Users can add customized ones depending on an illness specificity.
The app displays data in charts and diagrams so one can clearly see an illness tendency and history.
According to doctors involved in the development, the main advantage of their product is a possibility of storing all data about the daily state of a small patient in writing. They are of high importance for a doctor (or doctors) as well as communication with a patient’s family.
