With an initial focus of improving patient/doctor communication about seizure activity and surrounding treatments, SeizureTracker.com has expanded into improving the quality and cost of collecting data in epilepsy related research as well. Launched in 2007, the Seizure Tracker system serves a global audience with a registered user base of over 18,000. Largely due to the expansion into a mobile platform, Seizure Tracker users record between 700 - 1000 seizure events daily. Mobile technology allows for real-time capture of event related chronic medical conditions and enables easy sharing of information into larger care systems. Seizure Tracker has seamlessly integrated the use of a mobile application to record the length of a seizure while videotaping the event as it happens. The events can then be synced with a larger web-based system. The website allows users to enter surrounding treatments including medications and diet therapies. SeizureTracker.com also allows for recording possible influences on seizure activity like hormonal fluctuations, missed medications, etc. While on the site, users can create reports which include graphical comparisons of the information entered into the areas of Seizure Tracker. These reports can then be easily emailed or printed and shared with the care team. The creation of Seizure Tracker has changed the way patients log seizures by providing a platform to record more accurate seizure data that is easily shared with their care providers.This presentation will highlight the use of technology to fill gaps in doctor/patient communication, how mobile technology can impact the quality of patient reported outcomes and how that data can impact clinical care along with research.
