Digital Health Technology Can Improve Migraine Care

Recognizing the potential of digital health technology to advance migraine care, SensorRx is utilizing patient-generated health data that links to the physician in order to improve outcomes for the patient population.

The smartphone app, MigrnX allows users, with just 3 clicks, to document when a migraine episode is occurring, the intensity of the migraine, and what they are doing to treat it—whether it be an acute care medication or Advil. After filling in the information, the user is prompted to come back and document when the migraine ends so that the duration of the episode can be recorded.

Now, SensorRx will have an even more comprehensive understanding of migraines with its recent acquisition of the mobile health app “Migraine Coach” from Welltodo. The direct-to-consumer app works as an electronic diary, using algorithms to help users track all aspects of their migraine, such as the frequency, intensity, and duration. The acquisition, announced at the end of June, is integrating the 2 platforms immediately.
