MD Revolution, a San Diego-based digital health company, has created an mhealth system for chronic disease prevention and care. Backed by Indiana-based Perceivant’s data analytics technology, the RevUp prescriptive-based digital health system is said to deliver real, measurable improvements in health, lower healthcare costs and empower people with personalised, actionable data and coaching to help them make healthy lifestyle changes.
 
The system can merge in real time patient information from various sources, such as wearable devices (for example Fitbit, heart rate monitors and glucose machines), electronic medical records, laboratory results and manually logged food and exercise data to create a holistic view of patient health and wellness. Real-time reports and consolidated data from Perceivant enable healthcare professionals to identify trends and adjust care plans for large groups and individuals.
 
“Leveraging the talents of healthcare professionals in this manner will lead to significantly lower healthcare costs while improving patient health in general,” said Pratik Patel, chief operating officer of MD Revolution.
 
In addition, the data analytics technology, coupled with RevUp, is creating opportunities for more effective, efficient care. With Perceivant, MD Revolution anticipates doubling the number of patients its healthcare professionals can track and message in the next few months; the company expects that number to increase over time. The RevUp platform will also notify the team when to reach out to high-risk patients.
 
“By disrupting the world of digital health, MD Revolution is improving and extending lives,” said Brian Rowe, CEO and founder of Perceivant. “Contributing to their mission is a privilege that all of us at Perceivant appreciate.”
 
Moving forward, MD Revolution and Perceivant will continue to work together to innovate ways to improve health and lower healthcare costs.
 
“By partnering with Perceivant, we have more than just an analytics platform,” said Patel. “We have a partner with the technology expertise to help us improve the lives of our patients.”
