Those who suffer from migraines and previously benefited from the Migraine Coach app, can be assured the app is once again available and can be accessed on Android and iOS devices. Migraine Coach was designed by engineers and headache specialists who created a migraine management tool and transformed it into a functional platform solution. Additionally, the app is fully integrated with health system electronic record software.
Previous Migraine Coach users only need to download the newest app from the App Store and reset their passwords. New users can download the app and create a user profile to start tracking their migraines for free.
Migraine Coach is a means of managing one’s migraines with light-sensitive and easy-to-use functions integrated within the app to track a migraine episode quickly. Users gain insights through the Migraine Disability Assessment Test (MIDAS) scoring and customizable graphs and charts. Then, they can sort through the information by severity, duration, or other factors and export a PDF to their doctor.
The app also integrates the HealthKit, an app that allows users to document their health and activity data, and also provides informed health solutions to users who provide permission for their app to share health data.
SensorRx Inc., a provider of patient generated health data acquired by the developer of the original Migraine Coach, Welltodo LLC, in 2018, has re-released the app to cater to people who struggle with migraines. They hope to provide users with information about tracking headaches, improving diagnosis, and providing medication regimens.
Migraine Coach’s website also provides access to the app and other resources about migraines. SensorRX does plan to add more features to the app at some point in 2019.
“Our goal is to reduce the burden that migraines create for millions of people,” said George McLendon, PhD, co-founder and chairman of the board for SensorRx. “Keeping a diary is an important part of proper diagnosis and treatment. Migraine Coach simplifies headache tracking and reporting,” said Dr. McLendon.
According to the Migraine Research Foundation, migraines affect 12 percent of the population, and every 10 seconds a patient visits a US emergency room, ranking migraines among the top five reasons for an ER visit.
