SunSprite Selects Validic to Integrate Light Data into Providers’ Apps
Boston, Mass., March 4, 2015 – GoodLux Technology, the provider of the SunSprite light engagement solution for treatment of depression, announced today it has selected Validic, the leading cloud-based, digital health platform for integration of SunSprite-collected bright light data into various software platforms. SunSprite’s capacity to measure bright light exposure impacts the clinicians’ and patients’ ability to manage depression, leading to a triple-aim effect of better patient experience, improved population health and reduced cost.
“We are honored that SunSprite chose our platform for its integration with care management software,” said Ryan Beckland, co-founder and CEO of Validic. “By using Validic, SunSprite can quickly and accurately send its data to software platforms, enabling both clinicians and patients to be engaged in proactively managing mental health treatments impacted by light. We are very excited for the impact this device will have on the healthcare community.”
The SunSprite light engagement solution delivers bright light data into the Validic digital health platform, which quickly and conveniently integrates the device with software platforms communicating with clinicians.
“Validic’s ability to seamlessly deliver SunSprite’s bright light data to care platforms used by clinicians is crucial for the success of patients’ depression treatments and will lead to better care,” said Ed Likovich, CEO of GoodLux Technology. “Having to integrate once with Validic, versus multiple times for different software applications, was an easy decision as it helps us focus on the use of bright light therapy in mood disorders. Since our team will make integration publicly available in a few weeks, we are seeking pilots in healthcare organizations that plan to address depression with comorbid medical conditions.”
