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 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 healthcare app developers in the Deloitte Digital studios. “This dedicated team of UI, UX, and iOS engineers will specialize in developing healthcare-specific digital apps to transform the patient experience,” said Mike Brinker, global Deloitte Digital 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.
