This was an exciting week for Corrie! On July 27th, Corrie team members Erin Spaulding RN, Francoise Marvel MD, and Seth Martin MD represented Corrie at the American Society of Preventive Cardiology conference in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico. The ASPC conference brought together leaders in the field of preventive cardiology, with experts in areas including dyslipidemia, coronary artery disease, hypertension, diabetes, and women’s health.
In the poster session, Erin Spaulding, leader of deployment and patient engagement, shared the latest results of the MiCORE study. MiCORE now includes data on 110 Corrie users, who have experienced only a 5 percent 30-day readmission rate, compared with the national Medicare average of 20%. We are continuously enrolling more patients into MiCORE, and are very excited to announce that we will be accepting smartphone and tablet donations to help heart attack patients recover. Donations will go towards Corrie’s iShare program, which loans iPhones to patients who enroll in the MiCORE study, thus expanding access to powerful digital health technologies.
At the ASPC conference, Corrie had the exciting opportunity to meet with Dr. Seth Baum, the 2017-2018 president of ASPC and supporter of our iShare donation program. Dr. Baum initially suggested the idea for smartphone donations when we presented Corrie at the Cardiovascular Health Policy Summit in Washington DC, and he has pledged to help spread the word about Corrie’s donation program. If you would like to donate your used smartphones or tablets to help bring digital health innovations into the hands of heart attack patients, visit our donation form here.
