Dignity Health Key Developments

Dignity Health and Catholic Health Initiatives Team Up to Launch Community-Based Precision Medicine Program in the US

Dignity Health nd Catholic Health Initiatives announced the launch of the Precision Medicine Alliance LLC that will offer patients from both health care systems faster and more accurate diagnostic and treatment protocols based on their genetic and molecular profile information. The program will be available at nearly 150 hospitals and care centers across the U.S., serving approximately 12 million patients annually, creating community-based precision medicine program in the country. The Alliance will initially focus on advanced diagnostic tumor profiling in cancer treatment and will later expand into other areas such as cancer and cardiovascular risk, and pharmacogenomics. The program will also support oncology research by populating a database that will become the collection of clinical cancer data ever compiled by a single organization. The Precision Medicine Alliance will also integrate electronic medical records into a robust data-management infrastructure that will allow quick access to the right clinical expertise and clinical trial information. The two health systems will partner with laboratories and bioinformatics companies nationwide to develop molecular tests specific to meet the needs of patients and clinicians. By combining the data from highly sensitive diagnostic tests with an individual’s medical history, health care providers will be able to develop individualized treatment and prevention plans. Additionally, the Precision Medicine Alliance is aligned with the national Precision Medicine Initiative, which is a $215 million investment from the White House to accelerate biomedical research and provide clinicians with new tools to select the therapies that will work best in individual patients.

Dignity Health Improves Asthma Outcomes with Use of Digital Health Technology

Dignity Health announced results from a randomized controlled study which demonstrated that the use of digital health technology improved asthma control. The Propeller Health Asthma Platform utilizes sensors, mobile applications, and analytics to monitor short-acting ß-agonist (SABA) and inhaled corticosteroid use in real-time. The platform provides detailed information about patterns of medication use and notifications about patients with worsening asthma control. More than 495 adults and children enrolled in this study. The results found that the total amount of SABA use, and the total number of days when SABA was needed, was lower in the group using the Propeller Health Asthma Platform compared to the patients receiving routine care. Furthermore, a significantly greater increase in the Asthma Control Test was demonstrated in adults with uncontrolled asthma in the intervention group compared to adults with uncontrolled asthma under routine care.
