We track outcomes to better understand the changes our participants undergo. But even more meaningfully, we track outcomes to revolutionize the standard of care in medicine, a change which has to be data-driven. This commitment is fueled by our drive to make this transformative work accessible to everyone.
We partner with UCSF and Stanford to measure exercise, diet, depression and more, along with Emergency Department visits, biomarkers, and primary care utilization. All of our data come from patients at low-income clinics, who have varied health challenges including diabetes, heart disease, depression, chronic pain, as well as significant socio-economic barriers to health.
Outcomes measures are collected from participants at baseline and each month thereafter. These are analyzed with mixed linear models to make use of the longitudinal nature of the data, to address missing data, and to account for individual variability.
