CareMap

by Anoop Rao, MS, MD

Imagine a US-wide Google map for pediatric care - Would it not be great to find local parks, after school programs, a pulmonologist who accepts Medicaid, pharmacies and much more - all on one page?

About this project

The problem we solve:
Although resources may exist, the process of obtaining, retaining and sharing information regarding pediatric healthcare is fragmented and inefficient. For example, it is difficult and time-consuming to keep track insurance acceptance patterns (say an ophthalmologist who accepts Medicaid and speaks Spanish in your neighborhood), programs that cater to adolescents or healthy eating programs in the county or Down syndrome support groups in the area. A significant amount of time and effort is spent in collating and disseminating these resources. We have successfully prototyped CareMap, an interactive, query-able map-based display that providers and patients care use.

About our solution:
CareMap users can query a map and visualize all the pediatric resources that are available within their geography of interest - for example, (Dermatologist who speaks Spanish and accepts Aetna or Down syndrome resources in Northern California). We have developed semi-automated algorithms that recursively search the web, extract information, tabulate and validate this data.
Progress to date: * Fully functional prototype website with pediatric subspecialist/insurance data for certain zip codes. * Designed and implemented algorithms to automatically and recursively search the WWW for resources, to extract information (phone numbers, email etc), tabulate and automatically validate information (phone numbers etc) * American Academy of Pediatrics CATCH grant * Stanford Innovators in General Pediatrics Award

How We Help Physicians

Delivering effective care in pediatrics deterred by several inefficiencies in the system. As a result, less time is spent offering patient-care. A major source of inefficiency is that resources (information regarding sub-specialists, community resources, after school programs, healthy eating programs, pharmacies) exist in silos and the process of searching, retaining and sharing information is fragmented. We have prototyped a "Google Map mashup-for-Pediatrics" concept that displays resources on a google map thus empowering providers and patients to instantly envision their "medical home".

Challenge Mission

Mission: First, CareMap will save time so that providers can focus on patient care. Second, we will encourage users to contribute and share information so that patients can ultimately benefit.
Use of funds: 1. Development of algorithms, functional specifications, database development, deployment and website testing, hosting, computing space/software, technical research assistant, IT support $12,000 2. Development of community/industry partnerships, creating awareness, education/training/promotional material, dissemination/conferences & symposia/travel etc $5000 3. Evaluating impact of project/intervention and determination of outcomes/user study/compensation $2500 4. Research Assistant (net 300h x $15/h) = $4500 5. Intellectual Property (initial provisional patent application filing needs only) $750 6. Office Supplies $250
Intellectual Property Status: Source code is copyrighted. No existing patent applications.
FDA Status: None
Personal Message: Help CareMap become the go-to place for all pediatric resources
