Propeller Health Teams With UC Davis Health for OCPD Personalized Treatments

The two companies will combine digital platforms and health record systems to provide data on patient disease management.

UC Davis Health and Propeller Health have announced a new collaboration that will offer personalized treatment for high-risk patients with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) aiming to improve their health outcomes.

As part of the collaboration, UC Davis Health will provide the Propeller program–including sensors, mobile app, web portal, and personalized support–to eligible patients, with eventual expansion to patients in other UC locations and UC affiliates. The sensors attach to a patient’s inhaler to capture unique signals that record events, such as medication usage or respiration. This data will be transmitted directly to UC Davis Health’s Epic® electronic health record (EHR) system to support patient enrollment and remote patient monitoring via single sign-on.
