Doctor-Caregiver Med Management App

Thanks to Autism SpeaksBehavior Imaging Solutions announces the results of its research study funded by an Innovative Small Business grant from AutismSpeaks.org evaluating how doctors, patients and caregivers can utilize its Telehealth technology to better monitor the effectiveness of medications prescribed to individuals with autism. The research study involved the development and evaluation of a new mobile device app called Med SmartCapture.

The results showed that caregivers who used the new Med SmartCapture app could avoid expensive and difficult (and therefore often postponed) follow-up appointments with their doctor and, instead, could submit recorded video data via the Behavior Connect platform. The participating doctors found that they could obtain necessary contextual information by requesting appropriate video data from the caregivers via the Behavior Connect online platform and the smartphone app. With such information, the doctors could successfully monitor and subsequently optimize their patient’s medication. Such a process normally involves numerous in- office visits.

Using the Med SmartCapture app, families in the research study were able to maintain a consistent and informative relationship with their prescribing doctor. With such positive results, Med SmartCapture gained the attention of several other professionals, including community medicine and public health professionals such as Uwe Reischl, PhD, MD, who concluded that “the Med SmartCapture technology can revolutionize the way people reach out to access healthcare services. The BIS technology can become a game-changer in telemedicine.”

Dr. Robert L. Hendren, D.O., Vice Chair and Director of the Autism and Neurodevelopment Program the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, was equally impressed by the technology, saying, “I am very excited about what Med SmartCapture will be able to do for patient care and communication between parents, educators and providers so that we are all putting our integrated energies in the same direction to help the kids we are working with.”

Behavior Imaging Solutions provides an online HIPAA-conforming consultation platform (called Behavior Connect) where caregivers and doctors can upload and annotate video data of a child’s behavior, along with other medical records and notes. In this system, videos of behavior can be captured even after the fact thanks to Behavior Imaging’s time-buffering video capturing software. Med SmartCapture is yet another application for this internationally-used technology.
