We are proud to name eTreatMD as our National Digital Health Champion in recognition of their spirit of innovation on behalf of people with arthritis.
eTreatMD is a mobility health (mHealth) app and software developer focused on providing solutions for managing chronic conditions. eTreatMD developed LiveWith Arthritis, an arthritis app that enables users to measure, monitor and manage their arthritis. LiveWith Arthritis is now approved by Health Canada as a Class II medical device. While most arthritis apps can only record symptoms, LiveWith Arthritis can measure physical changes and help people living with arthritis see exactly how their pain connects to factors like weather, activity and treatment. The app empowers people with meaningful information that they can use to help better manage their condition, prevent painful flare-ups, and determine the most effective ways to relieve their pain. With input from the Arthritis Society, LiveWith Arthritis has been expanded from a pilot version that focused on arthritis of the hand, to the current version that now allows the user to track and monitor arthritis in other joints.
The app not only tracks treatments over time, but also evaluates the impact of treatments as they relate to changes in symptoms. It automatically pulls and assesses data from environmental conditions like weather and location, and lets users easily monitor arthritis flare-ups and what they may be related to. The app complies with important health privacy requirements in the US and Canada, providing reliable information while ensuring privacy in how user information is stored.
