New patientMpower Function – Share Your Health Progress with Friends, Family and Caregivers!

By June 19, 2018May 1st, 2021No Comments

We are pleased to announce the launch of the new caregiver, friends and family sharing tool for the patientMpower platform!

Our goal at patientMpower is to EMPOWER you to have better outcomes by helping you manage your health. Sharing your progress with your loved ones, or others going through similar experiences, and having support from caregivers can have a very positive effect on your well-being. Based on the feedback from our community of patientMpower users, we have been working on new developments of the platform to help you share your progress easily with close friends, family members, or caregivers.

Our new patientMpower sharing tool allows you to invite a friend, family member, or caregiver to follow your progress. They will be able to view your health data charts once they receive an invitation from you, register their information, and download the app. It is important to note that your friend, family member or caregiver can only see your health data charts with your permission, i.e. by your invitation only. In addition, they will only be able to view your information. All other functions of the app will be disabled (so that, for example, they can’t add information to your health records themselves). This new tool is an optional function, so if you would prefer not to share your health information with a family member or caregiver you can still use patientMpower just as you do at the moment.

Just follow these easy steps to invite your friend, family member or caregiver to see your health progress (you will need to be on the latest iOS or Android release for this – labelled patientMpower 2.0 – please download here.

This platform update was enabled by the IPF Catalyst Challenge. In January 2018 patientMpower was one of three overall winners of the $1,000,000 IPF Catalyst Challenge, and this is the second of our new app developments made possible by that funding.

If you have any questions on how to use our new friends and family sharing tool please don’t hesitate to get in touch at info@patientmpower.com.
