Science

Movn provides a library of evidence-based tools and content to support patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), congestive heart failure (CHF), hypertension, diabetes and acute coronary syndrome (ACS) including:

  • Provider-facing training manuals for managing patient’s risk factors; including medication management, signs and symptoms, smoking cessation, healthy eating, physical activity and stress management.
  • Interactive patient education materials in the form of workbooks, videos, quizzes and articles.
  • Algorithms and decision support tools to initiate care pathways for patient issues and reported symptoms.
  • Phone scripts to identify patient status, symptoms, medication adherence, and strategies to overcome barriers to meeting goals.
  • Algorithms and software designed to collect provide feedback on patient food intake patterns for saturated fat and sodium.

The Gold Standard, MULTIFIT

MULTIFIT is an evidence-based program for remote chronic care management developed by researchers at Stanford Medicine that has been validated on over 70,000 patients. Key results include:


Functional capacity and smoking cessation

In a randomized trial with 585 Post MI patients, MULTIFIT showed a higher improvement in functional capacity (9.3 for MULTIFIT vs 8.4 for usual care) and a higher smoking cessation rate (70% for MULTIFIT vs 53% for usual care). For patients in the program, total costs were 21% lower, in-patient costs were 37% lower and pharmacy costs were 21% lower.

ED Visits & Readmission Reduction

In a randomized trial with 325 patients, MULTIFIT showed a 40% reduction in all-cause readmissions and 73% percent in ED visits over a 12 week period.

“Cardiovascular Risk Reduction at United Healthcare of North Carolina: The First 12 Months,” Landis et al.
Hypertension and medication adherence

In a randomized trial with 150 patients, MULTIFIT showed a greater reduction in office BP values at 6 months (Systolic 14.2 ± 18.1 for MULTIFIT vs. 5.7 ± 18.7 mm Hg for usual care; Diastolic 6.5 ± 10.0 for MULTIFIT vs. 3.4 ± 7.9 mm Hg for usual care) as well as a higher average daily medication adherence at 6 months. (80.5% for MULTIFIT vs. 69.2 for usual care)

The Evidence Behind Movn

We have updated MULTIFIT to the latest clinical guidelines and infused it with digital tools. We are committed to further validating our programs and push the boundaries of care. Research publications with Movn have shown:

  • 60% enrollment rate
  • 80% graduation rate at 90 days
  • 90% staff and patient satisfaction
  • 76% improvement in functional capacity
  • 10 mm-Hg reduction in systolic blood pressure
