New App For Heart Attack Patients :

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the U.S. Every year, about 735,000 Americans have a heart attack, and more than a quarter of those patients suffer from repeat attacks, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Heart disease is caused by several hereditary and lifestyle factors, and recovery from the first attack requires ongoing support to help prevent a second one. That?s where Vida Health and AstraZeneca?s Day-By-Day app comes into play.

The app, which is launching through a trial program at Duke University, is a HIPAA-compliant smartphone application that will walk patients step-by-step through the recovery process using live digital coaches and educational materials, like videos, articles, and food journals, to help patients implement lifestyle changes and adhere to their new drug regimen. It?s an extension of Vida Health?s current cloud-based smartphone app, which provides personal health coaching services on both Android and iOS devices for a range of chronic conditions.

AstraZeneca AZN -0.09% will be covering the cost for all users participating in the program. The effort will give the pharmaceutical company a better idea of how they can engage with consumers beyond their daily dosages, as well as give the firm insight into how patients are using daily medications during recovery.

?We are focusing on patient problems while working within the pharmaceutical business that we fit within,? he said. ?It allows us to have a greater impact across an institution that?s looking to address all of their patient population.?
This is really a an appreciative thought and work from Vidya health and Astrazeneca.
