Overview

In August, Immunify.Life established a collaboration with the State of the Heart Recovery Centre (SHRC) from Albuquerque, New Mexico to explore use of the Immunify.Life technology to record, track & analyse clinical outcomes in clients undergoing addiction recovery treatment.

A key feature of the collaboration will be the use of IMM tokens to reward positive behaviour modifications to drive greater adherence to addiction treatment.

SHRC is a fully accredited treatment facility for opioid addiction and is unique in that it offers a holistic approach to treatment. 

At present Immunify.Life is developing a platform for use in the area of opioid addiction based on its existing Beta platform. The platform will track the following goals on a weekly basis:

  • Treatment dosing
  • Urine drug screening
  • Individual Therapy
  • Group Therapy

The platform when completed will be HIPAA compliant and will have functionality for clients to view their weekly treatment goals and for therapists & SHRC administrators to set & track clinical outcomes in real-time.

A trial of the Immunify technology in the clinical setting is expected to start before the end of CY 2021.
