MetaMedic is designed to help complex medical cases become clearer.


MetaMedic helps doctors perform better diagnostics by dynamically displaying medical lab and examination data and communications between patients and doctors in a way that is compelling, easy to understand, and visually impactful. It does this by taking all of your medical records, and assembling them in one place with the ability to view them visually over time.

In addition, by formatting the data in a way that is visual and in some cases 'normalized', and allowing data points to be hovered over for more information, patient and doctor alike easily grok the results.

What is MetaMedic?

MetaMedic is a tool that patients with a difficult medical history or set of symptoms can use with their doctors to simplify medical troubleshooting and communicate laboratory results and other patient/doctor research.

Of course, there is a backstory.

In 2017 I was living in Mexico and had to have 3 MAJOR abdominal surgeries in the space of 4 months.

As is often the case, recovering from such an ordeal can take some focus.  Part of this focus requires an accurate picture of the evolution of your medical process, and the ability to communicate that to your doctor in a way that is actionable.

At that point I had a stack of lab results about 3 inches high.

How do you communicate a 3 inch stack of laboratory and other reports?  And even if your doctor had the time (which they do not) I do not think it is humanly possible for that kind of analysis to happen.

So I started thinking of ways to get them quickly up to date, and allow them to explore my medical history in a way where they could easily explore interactively. 

I built it, and since that point I have had two different doctors tell me that I literally saved my own life.

By Test

While I was at it, I also wanted to be able to interpret the results visually both for myself and for my doctors.

The problem (for me) is that everything is in x amount of ml/L or whatever, and every blood test is on a different scale. And so I wanted a tool that would calculate a 'Normalized' value for all the tests and when a bunch of different kinds of tests are shown together, I wanted to see all of the values on a scale between 0 and 1. Easy peasy.
