When researchers at Canadas McGill University wanted to study the genetic factors affecting chronic pain, they turned to Open Health to help. The clinical study, developed by the McGill University Pain Center and funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, will rely on Open Healths customizable engagement platform to enable easier, faster data collection for researchers. Study participants will work with a user-friendly tablet-based questionnaire formatted on Open Healths platform to report their pain experiences.
We are excited to apply Open Healths technology to our clinical study protocol, as it allows us to collect data in a very efficient manner and in real time. The latter is especially important for pain research because pain is notorious for being variable during the day and human memory is notorious for being biased for pain reporting, says Professor Luda Diatchenko, McGill Universitys Canada Excellence Research Chair in Human Pain Genetics.
Open Health is a mobile and web platform that harnesses the power of the quantified self movement , advanced big data gathering and analytics and pairs it with the community-building aspects of social networking.
OHN connects patients with peers, caregivers, friends and family, doctors and researchers via friendly, personalized mobile and web applications. Users log and analyze their diet, activity and other basic metrics, which helps them make more informed daily choices to support a higher quality of life, and, by relaying the data to their physicians and caregivers, enable close monitoring and support.
In addition to the clinical trials for pain, Open Health Platform powers Open Cancer Network application.
OHNs founder, Tatyana Kanzaveli, is herself a cancer survivor. It was the lack of available information and a feeling of powerlessness while undergoing treatment that spurred her to create Open Cancer Network and Open Health Network. For Tatyana, the collaboration between her startup and McGill researchers is the first step in unlocking the wealth of self-reported data thats missing from current medical research and disease management efforts.
We believe that information is our best weapon in the fight against chronic diseases such as cancer , Autism, Parkinson's, others and were committed to making patient data easier to report, collect and analyze. We are thrilled to have our configurable and customizable platform used in such an important area as the clinical study for chronic pain at McGill University. The open configurable platform enables any health organization to have their own mobile and web applications for areas such clinical trials, patient engagement, surveys, other data collection and analytics . Our plug and play modules allow total platform customization with a short turnaround time and without any coding.
You can help Open Cancer Network to serve more cancer patients via their IndieGoGo page.
Open Health Network is a San Francisco based startup that has developed a customizable web and mobile platform for patient engagement, health analytics and data gathering. The Open Health Network platform powers the Open Cancer Network, a patient engagement and self monitoring application aimed at cancer patients and their caregivers, families and treatment teams.

Kids with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) can be overwhelmed because of their difficulty integrating information from their senses. Children with sensory challenges have difficulty when it comes to clothing textures, tags, exposed elastic bands, seams and itchy socks--just some of the obstacles facing children with special needs.
SPD is a neurological disorder that disrupts the way an individual processes and responds to sensations. Individuals with SPD may over- or under-respond to one or more sensations (e.g., a loud sound, or light touch), crave sensations or may have problems with motor skills and coordination.
STAR Center and Soft Clothing, a manufacturer of clothing specifically for kids with SPD and Autism Spectrum Disorder, have teamed up to provide 650 pairs of socks to children with SPD in the Phoenix area through Fiesta Pediatric Therapy, Inc. in Phoenix, Arizona, a clinic providing Physical, Occupational, and Speech therapy services for low-income families.
We applaud companies like Soft Clothing that not only recognize that SPD kids have unique needs but are such a generous community partner as well, said Sheryl Benjamin, Executive Director of STAR Center. We are thrilled to be able to include a deserving organization like Fiesta Pediatric that provides kids with special needs and their families resources to obtain services that they cannot otherwise afford.
STAR Center is based in Denver and through grants from the Arizona Community Foundation and other donors, it provides scholarships to help families in need for its specialized intensive therapy developed by leading researcher Dr. Lucy Jane Miller. Both a fundraising gala for STAR Center and an educational conference about SPD will take place November 7-8 in Tempe.
