About

The first phase of this pilot study will assess changes in quality of life at the end of a 16-week Mymee program in patients with moderate to severe SLE. The second phase will assess changes in healthcare utilization and cost over a one year period after program end.

Full description

Intervention Group The Intervention Group will enter daily tasks into the Mymee app. After the first intake session, the subject will participate in weekly 20-30-minute coaching sessions with the Health Coach. At the second session, the Health Coach will review the symptoms and the free text entered by the subject to determine which dietary and environmental factors will be monitored in the Mymee app. Each subsequent week, the Health Coach will review and discuss with the subject the food diary and the data entered into the Mymee app during the previous week. Based on this discussion and the subject's medical records, the Health Coach will determine or revise which symptoms will continue to be monitored using the Mymee App. Control Group The Control Group subjects will receive no training, coaching, or other intervention services from Mymee. The Control Group subjects will complete the same battery of assessments at the same intervals as the Intervention Group subjects.
