For Veterans - who often seek care both within and outside the VA system; Medicaid or Medicare beneficiaries - who on average see seven different doctors per year; or anyone who wants to better manage their healthcare, iBlueButton makes it easy to assemble and share critical health data with any doctor they choose. Accessing the individual’s various electronic medical records (EMRs) and financial claim data from public or private payors which the application uniquely transforms in real time into a longitudinal health record directly on the user’s mobile device, iBlueButton offers both ultimate privacy and accessibility for use at any time. Standard- based and code based, iBlueButton is an interoperability in the hands of consumers for use in the US and worldwide with its customizable platform.

SOS QR – Designed for emergency preparedness and to keep people safe, SOS QR is a globalized app that runs on Android and iOS phones and the Apple Watch and is available in multiple languages: English, French, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, and Portuguese. It makes conditions, allergies and medications available to any emergency responder in the local language. It also features an “SOS Button” that users can easily press to alert emergency contacts with their GPS location in an emergency situation and an “OK Button” that they can press to let loved ones know they are safe in a disaster scenario.

TENSIO – Nearly 30 percent of adults have high blood pressure and TENSIO assembles their health monitoring device data and health record information, then uses embedded analytics to generate on going personal notifications that coach you to better manage your hypertension. In concert with your doctor, TENSIO guides you in a very personal way to manage your blood pressure with personalized notifications on your smartphone and Apple Watch regarding your medications, exercise, and diet and weight loss regimens.

Winners of the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) Test Bed competition in 2016, SOS QR and TENSIO can be prescribed by 57% of NHS England GP practices caring for 26 million NHS patients starting on January 15, 2018.
