BALTIMORE, Md. – Digital health company ICmed and the University of Maryland’s School of Medicine are using a $200,000 grant from Maryland Industrial Partnerships to study whether the company’s digital platform can help increase senior patient and caregiver engagement to improve behavior and health outcomes. “Our mission is clear: to improve health outcomes and reduce health costs through greater collaboration, education and connectivity among an enterprise, patient and family caregivers,” said Dr. Greg Pelton, chief medical officer at ICmed, in a statement. ICmed’s enterprise dashboard, algorithms and mobile app work together to educate, empower and engage patients and their families/caregivers, enabling enterprises, including health care systems and senior living and care organizations, to manage and engage populations, and create a digital social network among the patient, the family and select caregivers. App users can: selectively communicate and collaborate with family, caregivers and providers; input, track and share health information; and store health records and family health history.
