Kaiser Permanente's Archimedes is the Engine Behind New Heart Health Mobile App

New IndiGo app aimed at heart health to analyze person-specific information

April 8, 2013 — Archimedes IndiGo — the physician and patient decision-support tool created by Archimedes, Inc. — was chosen last summer as the risk-assessment engine for the new $100,000 mobile app challenge sponsored by the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC). As part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Million Hearts "Risk Check Challenge," the ONC invited developers to create a mobile app that would help consumers take a heart-health risk assessment, direct them to health-screening locations in their community and use the results to work with their doctor to develop a plan for improving their heart health.

The winning mobile app was developed by Wisconsin's Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation. Archimedes IndiGo is the app's risk-assessment engine.
 
IndiGo is derived from the Archimedes Model, a large-scale, clinically realistic, trial-validated, mathematical model of diseases, individuals, populations and healthcare systems. In the new Heart Health app, IndiGo is used to analyze person-specific information entered by the individual and then calculate his or her risk of heart attack or stroke. While this is the first time that IndiGo has been adapted to an application programming interface format (a protocol that enables software components to communicate with each other) for use by consumers, IndiGo has been deployed in communities across the country for use by physicians at the point-of-care.
 
The Heart Health iPhone app is available to download. A web-based (HTML5) responsive design version that works on other devices is expected to be released, and the app will soon be available in other languages.
