New ‘LupusMinder’ App Helps Patients Track Appointments, Medications, Symptoms

Lupus News Today—October 16, 2017

Lupus News Today reports that an interdisciplinary team at Hospital for Special Surgery has developed a mobile app called LupusMinder.

"We wanted to create a comprehensive app to record all pertinent information, lowering the stress associated with managing lupus," said Mary K. Crow, MD, physician-in-chief at HSS.

The article stated that the team took into consideration testimonials from patients who reported that they couldn't remember the breadth of their symptoms, when to take medications and that it was difficult to keep track of their moods and appointments between physician visits.

"As lupus symptoms can fluctuate each day, it can be challenging for us to assess overall disease activity if we only see what occurs at the moment the patient is in our office," said Jane E. Salmon, MD, rheumatologist at HSS.

"We took insights about what features would be most helpful into consideration as we developed LupusMinder," added Roberta Horton, director of the Department of Social Work Programs at HSS.

The app is available for free on both iOS and Android devices.
