LifeMap Solutions has launched a pilot program for COPD Navigator, an app that helps patients monitor and manage the symptoms of COPD.
LifeMap Solutions, an emerging digital therapeutics provider and subsidiary of BioTime, Inc. (NYSE MKT: BTX), today launched a pilot program for COPD Navigator, an Apple HealthKit-compliant iOS app that helps patients monitor and manage the symptoms of COPD. Developed in close partnership with researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and with COPD experts from the Mount Sinai – National Jewish Health Respiratory Institute, COPD Navigator harnesses the power of mHealth (mobile health) technology and big data analysis to provide COPD patients with an engaging, interactive coach in their pocket. A patient’s doctor specifies the app’s settings and communications. During the pilot program, physicians at The Respiratory Institute will work with patients who use the COPD Navigator iPhone app with the goal of improving their self-management of COPD.
