Harvard Pilgrim Health Care (HPHC) has partnered with Boston Children’s Hospital to deploy a KidsMD platform for new parents on the HPHC portal.

Partnership Overview

KidsMD is a Boston Children’s Hospital digital health platform for delivering trusted consumer-facing health tools to patients and families. The platform contains information on 30 of the most common acute pediatric conditions as well as basic symptom checker functionality and medication dosing guidance.

The development and design work of the platform was completed by the Innovation & Digital Health Accelerator (IDHA) team at Boston Children’s Hospital. The IDHA team made the KidsMD platform and information available to HPHC employees via the HPHC portal in the fall of 2018.

Healthcare Context

The internet is saturated with educational content for thousands of conditions and diagnoses. Traditional symptom checkers fail to adequately guide parent decision making for an acutely sick child that’s otherwise healthy. KidsMD leverages the reliable clinical expertise of Boston Children’s Hospital to provide trusted guidance for parents managing acutely sick children who are otherwise healthy.
