Medelinked, the online health platform that empowers healthcare engagement and management, has announced that it will be the first application featured in the BioClinica®, eHealth App xChange™, an alliance channel for disruptive technology innovation across life sciences and healthcare.
Medelinked allows individuals to use mobile technology and the cloud to increase the effectiveness of health care by enabling them to securely build their health profile online and to connect and share with their network of trusted health partners.
Pennsylvania -based BioClinica, a global specialty clinical trials technology and services provider that serves more than 400 pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and device organizations, recently launched the eHealth App xChange. It provides healthcare payers, providers, researchers, regulators and patients with access to transformative applications integrated with and delivered through BioClinica’s eHealth Cloud™.
Leading innovation in regulated clinical trials
BioClinica eClinical President, Mukhtar Ahmed says: "Our App xChange is an incubator and growth engine for niche technology providers and individual app developers, so we welcome Medelinked as the first in a series of new partners as BioClinica continues to lead industry innovation within the regulated clinical trial space."
Ahmed continues: "Medelinked’s presence in the App xChange will enable research communities to ensure unique levels of patient and consumer engagement so accelerating pre- and post-approval research while creating efficiency and quality benefits."
Driving the global shift in how patients and the healthcare industry connect
Ian Gallifant, Medelinked founder and CEO, says: “With this latest development, Medelinked is further driving the global shift in how patients and the healthcare industry connect from early clinical research and trials right through to day-to-day health management. The fact that BioClinica has chosen Medelinked to be the first to feature on its new strategic and disruptive platform is a profound endorsement of the quality and effectiveness of Medelinked’s technology.”
"Medelinked applications are changing the way patients and the healthcare industry connect and interact, and we are bringing this innovation to clinical trials," said BioClinica Global Product Development Senior Vice President Andrew Masters. Apps can be used to seamlessly stream self-reported health information, as well as data from leading fitness and wellness trackers and apps for a comprehensive health profile. Masters explained, "Individuals can readily share their online health profile with their trusted network, creating new care pathways for patients. Also a new speak-to-a-physician app can be invaluable in clinical research."About Medelinked
"Integrating an online health platform that empowers healthcare engagement and management while enhancing the utility of eClinical systems without adding costs is a game-changer," Masters said. Apps like these allow BioClinica to pull additional sources of data into BioClinica's Express electronic data capture system. "By enabling integrated solutions to be built on our open eHealth platform, we are helping sponsors and their CROs to deliver on their digital health strategies."
"This is the first real-world integration of our technology within clinical trials, and we are excited about the innovation it brings," said Medelinked founder and CEO Ian Gallifant. "Making our application available as part of the BioClinica platform proves the value of our patient-centered model."
Medelinked was founded in order to allow individuals to use mobile technology and the cloud to increase the effectiveness of health care by enabling them to securely build their health profile online and to connect and share with their network of trusted health partners.
Managing all their health data in one place helps individuals securely track and monitor improvements easier and quicker and share vital data with their healthcare providers (doctor, consultant, insurer, pharma) to ensure they have access to their latest health data. This enables them to provide the best possible care and it keeps the individual in control of their own health.
The Medelinked Health Cloud and API is also allowing developers to create series of new applications that deliver real health benefits to the end user.
Medelinked was founded in 2005 and is based in Oxfordshire, UK
