Patient-Friendly App Wins AHRQ's Step Up App Challenge

The newly created app, PRISM, is the winner of AHRQ's Step Up App Challenge, a multiphase competition to develop a user-friendly app that makes it easier for standardized patient-reported outcomes data to be incorporated into clinical care and research.

PRISM guides patients through questions about their health status. Their responses, in turn, become part of the medical record so that clinicians can better address patient needs and concerns. The app will now be tested in nine practice settings affiliated with MedStar Health in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. Results will be available later this year.

PRISM was developed by a multidisciplinary team: University of Minnesota's Carlson School of Management, the Institute for Health Informatics, HealthEast Kidney Stone Institute, and PerkHealth, a Minnesota-based startup mobile app development company.
