The Rock Cf Foundation and ProPatient Form a Collaboration to Provide Modern Education Tools for Cystic Fibrosis Patients and Caregivers

ProPatient and the RockCF Foundation form partnership to bring modern, interactive online education tools to the cystic fibrosis community.

HIllsborough, NC, January 01, 2015 --( ProPatient, a provider of interactive patient education web and mobile tools is teaming up with, a seven year old organization founded by Emily Schallar to support cystic fibrosis (CF) patients around the world. The two groups recently collaborated with the largest CF treatment center in the US, to create an online interactive education experience for CF patients.

“I am super excited about ProPatient,” comment Schallar, “We needed something beyond pamphlets and informational videos to educate CF patients and caregivers. Education can make all the difference for CF patients and empower them to take ownership of their treatments and that results in better outcomes.”

Hadden commented, “Rock CF and Emily were great to work with. They provide such a valuable service to the CF community and we are lucky to have Emily as a guest star in our online program. We are exploring other avenues in the future to provide ProPatient-based education for a wider range of topics for CF patients and caregivers.”

The ProPatient platform uses a combination of simulation and smart checklists to both educate patients and caregivers and also help them get more from their doctors visit. “It’s amazing” commented Hadden, “to consider that people on average get less than 10 minutes with their doctor a few times a year and they only ask an average of 4 questions. How can you possibly understand something as complicated as your health in only 4 questions?”

According to Hadden, ProPatient is developing a specific version of their mobile application for CF patients to assist them in managing the exceptionally complex treatment regimens CF patients cope with everyday. It will help them remember the questions they have for their doctor, provide a simple means to track their treatments and give them CF specific checklists for doctors visits, and unforeseen health events such as hospitalizations.
