Digital Medicine Programs and Chronic Disease Management
Ochsner's digital medicine programs for chronic disease management allow real-time patient data to be shared with the care team.

Digital Medicine Programs

Ochsner's digital medicine programs for hypertension, diabetes, COPD and asthma allow real-time patient data to be shared with a care team, enabling immediate medical and lifestyle adjustments.

Ochsner Health System broke new ground by integrating Apple's HealthKit with its electronic health record system, Epic. Now patient data – such as blood pressure readings or weights – get shared automatically with their care team through their electronic health record.
