Web Based Management of Sleep Apnea
ARC grant to develop an interactive website for sleep apnea management
1) Learning Center - short flash based modules
2) Tracking of Symptoms
3) My graphs Component with wireless data translation, they got an output, 3 parameters they tracked
4) Interactive trouble-shooting guide, 3 questions.
5) Reference Manual
We did not include:
- Email contact
- No online forums
- really like the interactive components of it.
- a website was developed for insomnia.
- Gets much more powerful where you can connect usage to outcomes
First iteration. What the patients like was the ability to track their data and progress. Enjoyed tracking the symptoms. Sleep Apnea Quality of Life Questionnaire.
Which symptoms impact you the most? Allowed us to tailor the treatment.
They did not fully develop the interactive trouble-shooting guide. Follow-up after proposing solution X.
Two different folks at UCSD. And then a computer design person.
We should have figured out the best way to present this data.
Introductory "How it Works" Screencast
Dr. Kuna: Must work out an "export" function
Particularly in tracking the assessment to the questionnaires.
Tracking by clicks? That would be critical to know who is clicking what. The question he could never answer is how much time was spent there and where AND how did that affect their outcomes. Need the info by individual user.
Be sure we can take care of Sam's data requirements?
Key requirement = knowing web portal usage by patient.
Across the medical centers when assigning codes to the medical centers. Could be something on Sharepoint.
Dr. Kuna says the value of the portal could be immensely enhanced if it can be merged with the VISTA/CPRS Austin-based data.
