We make thousands of peer-to-peer connections each month that make a tremendous clinical impact, but these are often just numbers on a page. Nothing beats hearing it firsthand! See the amazing video from the National Kidney Foundation on NKFs national Peers program, which InquisitHealth’s PeerStrong™ mobile+web platform has supported for the past 7 years!
InquisitHealth’s Ashwin Patel, MD PhD presented Putting AI/ML into Action: Challenges and Opportunities at the “Academy of Physicians in Clinical Research Annual Meeting” last Oct 07, ’22

We keep asking those struggling to lift the biggest burden. Current strategies are necessary, but just not sufficient: – Standardized coding of social needs – EMR-integrated referrals for social services – Closed-loop referrals All important, but just not enough. What we are missing/need: – More proactive outreach – Less bureaucratic requirements – More empathy The […]
Event Date: October 30 – November 3
Venue: Hilton San Diego Bayfront #AMIA2021
The Annual Symposium builds on more than 40 years of sharing research and insights for leveraging information to improve human health. The AMIA 2021 Annual Symposium showcases the latest innovations from the community of biomedical informatics researchers and practitioners.
Among many other things, 2020 made us aware of the value of our community – a community that we have missed: colleagues, mentors, experts, and students with a shared interest in informatics. The past year demonstrated the necessity in our country for access to information to improve health and health care, and the need for professionals to use and apply that information to transform health care. At the same time, the past year made us aware of different approaches as we were forced to adapt to a “new normal” in many areas.
Shifting to a virtual Annual Symposium in 2020 forced us to do things differently, and at times, these adaptations brought more opportunities for conversation and collaboration than we ever had before. We plan to take those key positive outcomes of the virtual Annual Symposium and apply them to the AMIA 2021 Annual Symposium. We look forward to seeing you in San Diego.

The ST3P-UP Study is a multicenter randomized clinical trial to evaluate the effectiveness of virtual peer mentoring in improving patient outcomes and reducing healthcare utilization among emerging adults with sickle cell disease.The ST3P-UP Study mentors and advisors complete a comprehensive sickle cell training program via InquisitHealth’s Peer Mentor University™, including multiple standardized patient activities (SPAs).Trained mentors then utilize InquisitHealth’s Mentor1to1™ platform to provide support to adolescents with sickle cell disease through 1-to-1 phone calls and chat conversations.
InquisitHealth has helped develop a (a) comprehensive sickle cell disease training program for mentors (who have successfully completed their own transition from pediatric to adult sickle cell care), and (b) a custom technology platform with the tools necessary for effective, 1-to-1 peer mentoring. Trained peer mentors are matched 1-to-1 with patients to offer individualized support, education, and the resources necessary for a successful transition.
The PeerStrong™ admin platform allows the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation to match patients with Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis (and their caregivers) with trained Peer Supporters. The PeerStrong™ web and mobile platforms then facilitate communication between Peers and Peer Supporters via phone call, chat, and participation in a community forum to better support patients and families through their IBD journeys.
Participants are matched based on location when possible due to the unique experiences of living in Alaska. The phone-based mentoring program has extended the Alaska Department of Health’s reach from just 9 in-person DPP programs in 5 cities to a state-wide program available to every Alaska resident with prediabetes.
Each MetroPlus member is matched 1-to-1 with a best-fit, culturally and clinically-similar mentor via InquisitHealth’s Mentor1to1™ technology platform. In addition to activating healthy behaviors, each patient’s social determinants of health are identified, appropriate solutions are implemented, and each open issue is systematically tracked to resolution. InquisitHealth, along with our clinical experts, MetroPlus staff and community based organizations, all work together via InquisitHealth’s proprietary Joint Issue Tracker™ to help address the unique social needs of the MetroPlus patient population.
