Heart disease patients receive social support in the palm of their hands

A pilot study of a social networking app for women with heart disease showed that the application was effective at helping users manage their health. The study was led by the Heart and Stroke Foundation, in collaboration with BCATPR's Drs. Scott Lear and Brodie Sakakibara

The Healing Circles mobile health app, developed by Curatio, allows women to share their experience, knowledge, manage their condition and connect with experts from the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Dr. Sakakibara won best abstract and presented the results of the Healing Circles study at this year's Heart + Lung Health FEST.
