OverviewCareEvolution web portals and smartphone applications like MyDataHelps™ and myFHR™ (the “App”) enable consumers and patients to participate in research studies and quality improvement programs (the “Project” or “Projects”) organized by healthcare researchers and providers (the “Investigators”) to improve our understanding of how diseases progress, what interventions work, and how each of us may respond differently to the same interventions so we may learn how to improve our collective health and well-being through data. Your use of the App will allow you to share information about your overall health and fitness; family history; your activity level; any sensor based data such as weight, blood pressure, blood glucose level, heart rate; information about your location; and any other information requested by Projects you enroll in and agree to provide as part of the Project.
Registering for the AppIn order to participate in the App platform, we ask you to create an account in the App. To create an account, you must share certain identifying information (such as name, date of birth, email address) and preferences (such as whether to share certain types of data, whether and when to receive notifications and reminders), and agree to the usage and privacy practices as detailed in this document, which may be modified from time to time.
Information We Collect - the “Data”The App will not access your personal contacts, personal photos nor any text and email messages on your smartphone without your explicit permission.
Information you manually enter into the AppWe receive and store some information you manually enter into the App. In addition to directly identifiable Personal Information, We or an Investigator may ask you to enter information including but not limited to your medications, medical history, lifestyle choices, illnesses and associated symptoms, mood, activity, and fitness. In the future We may collect additional health-related information as the App and the surveys presented to you are further developed by various researchers who implement Projects using the App. You can choose not to provide us with certain information by simply by skipping questions that you are uncomfortable answering.
Information That May Be Collected AutomaticallyIn addition to the information that you manually enter, with your permission, the App also collects certain information about you automatically through your smartphone and/or any other connected wearable devices such as smartwatches.
Push Notifications"Push notifications" are messages sent to your smartphone as reminders of what you may wish to do for the various Projects you may be participating in. Such notifications can serve as helpful reminders to complete surveys or take certain measurements (for example, blood pressure, weight, or glucose readings). You can choose to disable notifications in the settings on your smartphone, but we strongly encourage you to not disable such notifications.
Another way you could receive notifications from CareEvolution is through SMS (text) messages. When signing up for our service we will send you a onetime pin code to verify your account from MyDataHelps. You can also choose to receive continuous notifications about your participation in health research studies. Message and data rates may apply. The frequency of these messages depends on the number of Projects you are enrolled in and their schedule. If you need help reply with "HELP" or call (734) 259-6059. To unsubscribe reply "STOP" to any received message. Carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages.
