Our team has worked closely with Medly from the inception of the app, to its first randomized controlled trial, which demonstrated improvements in heart function and self-care, to its deployment today. The Medly app is now being operationalized at the heart failure clinic at University Health Network, one of the largest hospital networks in North America. There, Medly is being prescribed by the clinician to the patient to take home, as they would with any prescribed drugs. Moving forward, we will be working with other clinics and hospitals to implement Medly, and change the lives of those with multiple chronic conditions.
