MedDiary Inc., a mobile healthcare software developer, has launched its mHealth software-as-a-service platform, consisting of a cloud-based portal for providers and a mobile app for patients.

The integrated platform enables healthcare providers to easily create a custom mobile health app for their patients and then monitor them remotely. Patients pay a $35 monthly in-app subscription fee for this “concierge level” service. In turn, MedDiary compensates providers with a $15 monthly services fee for coordinating the patient’s care.

The company says MedDiary is ideally suited for applications in which patients need to intensely manage their health for a short period of time, while under the close supervision of a healthcare provider. Such applications include following hospital discharge instructions, managing a newly diagnosed chronic disease, following a complex medication regimen for cancer treatment, following a strict diet as directed by a bariatrician or registered dietitian, or following the care plan of a functional medicine practitioner or health coach.

The MedDiary platform currently offers seven different health management modules for use in creating the custom MedDiary mobile health app--food and nutrition, symptoms, medications, self-measurements, physical activity, sleep and bowel movements. Providers can select any combination of these modules and then further refine the specifications within each one to meet the individual needs of each patient.

For example, in the food and nutrition module, providers can select up to 20 nutrient items for the patient to track, with a daily consumption goal for each one. In the medications module, providers can specify both prescribed and OTC medications for the patient to take including dosage, frequency and special instructions. All of the specifications configured by the provider are automatically reflected in the patient’s version of the MedDiary app.
