What is Validic?
Validic is used to track all aspects of fitness and health. Not an app itself, it simply runs in the background of your designated fitness applications. Before you can use it, you will have to authorize Validic to move data from your apps or devices to Atlas, after which it will be able to collect valuable information and send the data directly to your patient’s Vitals and Stats page inside Atlas.md. Your patients won’t even know it’s there!
“Accelerate access of clinical and fitness patient data for better insights to drive better outcomes and efficient patient population management.” -Validic

How Can I Connect My Patients Via Validic?
Connecting your patients to Validic is achievable in just a couple quick steps, and starts with sending an invitation. First, navigate to your patient’s chart. Click the “Vitals and Stats” sidebar button, and select “Validic” integration. At that point, an invitation is sent to your patient – it contains an invitation link your patient will need to click to accept. Once the invitation is accepted, your patient will be taken to Validic’s marketplace to select the devices and apps they want to connect to. Here you will be directed to the participating app’s or device’s authorization page, where they’ll allow us access to their fitness information and health data via the apps they personally use. When all this is done, you’ll receive an email notification confirming a successful connection!
Once this process is complete, Atlas.md will begin monitoring the data provided by Validic and display the information in the “Vitals and Stats” page in your patient’s chart. Atlas.md updates the fitness stats for patients on a daily basis.
