Medical Weight Loss Patient Support

 

Online applications are becoming pervasive to support and complement existing clinical treatments.  However, many applications do not undergo the scrutiny of understanding their clinical impact and patient acceptance. 

We partnered with an outside vendor to run St. Luke's first-ever technology-based clinical trial.  We aim to measure the impact of supporting clinical guidelines with an education-based mobile application.  By partnering with our Clinical Trials office, we are exploring how evidence-based clinical medicine can be complemented with emerging mobile applications.
