Hacking Medicine Institute (HMi), a nonprofit organization that spun out of MIT last year, launched its health app review platform, called Ranked Health. The initiative is led by Dr. Maulik Majmudar, a cardiologist and associate director of the Healthcare Transformation Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital, and Dr. Adam Landman, an emergency medicine physician and the chief medical information officer at Brigham & Women’s Hospital.
The website is up now, and currently has reviews for 17 apps, ranging from insomnia app Sleepio (“Recommended” with a score of 85) to Quick BP Measure (“Not Recommended” with a score of 10). The score is created by a panel of reviewers ranking apps on effectiveness (which includes clinical relevance, credibility, and evidence-base), functionality, and usability. The reviewers are all MDs (with the exception of one PharmD) representing a range of backgrounds and specialties.
