CINCINNATI, Aug. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BioRx, a Diplomat company (NYSE: DPLO), announced today the release of its newest version of the MyFactor® app for iOS and Android mobile devices. The new versions of the app are available for download on the App Store and Google Play.
MyFactor® enables hemophilia patients to record bleeding episodes and treatments, and facilitates easy sharing of information with their health care team, including caregivers, physicians, pharmacists and nurses.
The new version provides cloud-based data storage and synchronization across multiple mobile devices, allowing caregivers to view multiple patients' data on a single device. "Unlike most hemophilia apps available on the market, MyFactor® now provides the confidence of secure cloud-based data storage," said Eric Hill, vice president, chief operating officer of Diplomat Specialty Infusion Group. "As users increasingly upgrade, add or change mobile devices, safeguarding the continuity of their data becomes imperative. The new MyFactor® ensures users can access their data on any device that runs the app."
While the new iOS app effectively replaces the original iOS release in 2013, the original app remains available on the App Store, renamed "MyFactor® Classic." It has been updated to include a "data export" feature (available in the app's "Profile" section). This feature allows users of the original iOS app to migrate their data to the new app and, with the addition of an email address, benefit from secure, cloud-based data storage. MyFactor® Classic will remain on the App Store for an undetermined period to allow time for users to convert. Apple iOS users can find instructions for exporting their data to the new version at biorxhemophilia.com/myfactor. Users of the current Android app simply need to download the update from Google Play and add their email address in the profile section to enable cloud-based data backup.
"We are excited to release this innovative app as a way to better support our patients with hemophilia or any other related bleeding disorders," said Diplomat CEO and Chairman Phil Hagerman. "This platform allows a revolutionary way for patients to stay on track with their treatment and share information with members of their health care team."
