In clinical practice it allows care to be initiated and adapted according to the patients’ unique profile and evolving needs.

In clinical trials mehealth® enables the collection of data from multiple environments and informants, including the integration of remote monitoring wearables, smartphone applications and patient- and carer-facing web-based portals.

At the event the team will also be presenting the following poster which reports data from mehealth® ADHD demonstrating that the collection of longitudinal data relating children’s symptoms and impairments in more than one setting (school as well as home) improves ADHD outcomes.

Web-Based Technology Improves Pediatric ADHD Care and Patient Outcomes

IXICO plc (Ticker: IXI) (‘IXICO’ or the ‘Company’), the brain health company, is pleased to note a press release from Cincinnati Children’s a non-profit, pediatric, academic medical center. This release notes the publication of positive result in a peer-reviewed journal of a multi-institutional study examining the use of a new web-based software program to help to reduce ADHD behavioural symptoms in children. The web-based digital healthcare platform has been licensed to IXICO and is now available as a clinical decision support tool in the US from www.mehealthcom


See full release here

CINCINNATI – As cases of ADHD continue to rise among U.S. children, pediatricians at busy community practices are getting a much-needed assist from a web-based technology to improve the quality of ADHD care and improve patient outcomes.

According to a multi-institutional study published online July 26 in Pediatrics, a new webbased software program is helping reduce ADHD behavioral symptoms in children receiving care at community pediatric practices by coordinating care and ensuring patients get the most effective ADHD medication for their care.

This is important for children with ADHD who rely on extremely busy community based pediatric practices where ADHD care is often poor – especially in the areas of medication management and monitoring, according to Jeffery Epstein, PhD, the study’s principal investigator and director of the Center for ADHD at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

“Our data show the software not only helped improve the quality of medication care received by children treated at community based pediatric practices, but it also improved treatment outcomes for these children,” Epstein said. “As a result of the improved quality of ADHD care, children treated by pediatricians using this new technology had significantly less ADHD symptoms than children treated by pediatricians who were not given access to this web-based technology.”

IXICO’s mehealth® deployed in American Academy of Pediatrics quality improvement program for

ADHD patients

Improving pediatric care for children with ADHD in the US


3 March 2016, IXICO plc (Ticker: IXI) (‘IXICO’ or the ‘Company’), the brain health company, is pleased to announce that its mehealth® technology has been deployed by the American Academy of Pediatrics (“AAP”) as part of its Chapter Quality Network improvement program.

Download full press release here

AAP’s 2016 quality improvement program initiative aims to improve pediatric ADHD care and patient outcomes. Under this initiative, mehealth® for ADHD is being deployed to support pediatricians from six State Chapters in the diagnosis, evaluation, routine assessment and treatment of children with ADHD. It will be used also for the collection of care quality metrics and to assist with training.

Professor Derek Hill, Chief Executive of IXICO, commented:

“We are delighted to be participating in the AAP’s 2016 initiative, which is focused on the clinical management and care of children and families living with ADHD. We are proud to be working alongside leading partners who have a shared vision of using technology, knowledge and expertise to change the delivery of healthcare and bring meaningful benefits to patients. The prominence and size of the AAP provides a significant opportunity for our mehealth® for ADHD product.”

The clinical care provided to children with ADHD traditionally relies on parents and teachers completing extensive paper-based assessments. The mehealth® platform technology simplifies data collection and facilitates reduced assessment times with the potential for more accurate diagnoses and improved treatment monitoring. Digital healthcare tools enable  pediatricians to balance an ever increasing work load whilst delivering the highest standards of care.

A participating physician commented:

“Parents and teachers have found that completing paper based Vanderbilt Assessments can be frustrating and time consuming. The mehealth® for ADHD product helps to reduce this frustration as mobile data entry makes it convenient to provide inputs that the physician can use in the provision of care.”
