2016 Winner Profile

Penn Medicine - University of Pennsylvania Health System

Project Description:
Founded in 1751, Penn Medicine is the first hospital in the US and continues to be one of the world's leading academic centers. Continuing that success Penn Medicine's IT team quickly realized the potential benefits of leveraging Apples HealthKit system and combining its functionally with their own Epic electronic medical record (EMR) to unlock the potential to further improve patient care by leveraging bio electronic data. Once they acquired the Apple HealthKit technology and configured the EMR and patient portal application, the pilot results of the study exceeded all expectations. By leveraging the new technology Penn Medicine now had a 100 percent Data accuracy rate for EMR data while the patients compliance with the medical requirements increased by 82 percent or higher on their daily blood pressure recordings.
