Create a new Smart Health Journal using the MitoAction Mobile Website
A “smart” health journal automates symptoms and vitals by sequencing what you receive to track each day in the MitoAction Mobile app. Watch the video and follow the steps laid out below. You’ll be tracking in no time and get a full picture of your experience with mitochondrial disease.
Note: Creating a new Mito Journal takes 10-30 minutes. Take your time. It’s worth it!
We have laid out the steps to walk you through setup of automated Symptoms tracking for your Mito Health Journal.
First: Log in to Website
Next: Start New Journal/ Plan
Click the “heart page” icon on the left side navigation bar (below the calendar icon).
Setting up your Journal has three pages: Setup, Actions/Interventions, and Review.
Click the “New Journal/Plan” button on the right side to go to the Setup page.
Setup: Add Patient Info and Journal/Plan Details
First and Last Name: Enter the patient’s first and last name. If you are the patient, add your name.
Preferred Method of Contact: In the Preferred Contact Method field, add YOUR email if you are the patient or if you will be tracking on behalf of your loved one.
Add any Family/Friends if they will be tracking symptoms and vitals. If not, you can skip. You can also add other family/friends later if necessary.
Journal/Plan Title: Add the Journal Title (e.g., Jane’s Mito Journal). This Title will appear in the mobile app and website Home and screens indicating where you you can track and add to your journal.
Time Zone: Choose the time zone when the journal reminders will be sent. This may be different from your current time zone.
Start and End Dates: Add the Start and End Dates. We recommend one month or three months in duration. This will give you enough time to get really good data and charts.
Problem and Objectives: Choose the main Problem (diagnosis). You can only choose one. Add any other diagnoses in the Objectives field along with what you want to achieve by tracking these symptoms and vitals.
Professional Team: Only complete this section if you are a care professional or if you have permission to add care professionals to your Journal.
Once you’ve entered all of the Setup information, click “save” to go to the Actions/Interventions screen.
Interventions: Add Symptoms/Vitals, Medications and more to Track
On the Actions/Interventions page, scroll down past the header information summary from the Setup page to add your Symptoms.
Symptoms: Click “add” in each group to see what Symptoms and Vitals are available. There are several groups so make sure you review each one to make sure you are tracking exactly what you want.
Medications: Click “add” to add medications and supplements. In the drop down menu, choose “Other” and type in your medication. You can also type in a group name like “Morning Meds” and use the “Outcomes/Notes” field to the right to list the medications and supplements you take in the morning. Do the same for Afternoon Meds and Evening Meds.
Start – End Dates: These dates are for the individual activity. The default is the duration of the journal. If you want to keep those dates, simply leave them. You can NOT choose dates outside of the Journal date range.
Frequency: Select how often you want to complete this action. Note: If you choose more frequent than once per day, you can also add the exact time of day you want the tracking Reminder to be sent.
Outcomes/Notes: Enter any notes that will help the person complete the task. You can add all the medications and supplements here if you added a Group name like “Morning Meds” in Medications.
IMPORTANT: Don’t forget to click “save.” You MUST click the “save” button on each symptom you add.
Repeat this process for each symptom/vital you choose. If you want to add items from any of the other Groups, you can repeat these steps as well.
When you’ve added all of the Symptoms and Vitals you want to track, click “review plan” to go to Review.
Review: Review Your Journal Tracking
Review: In Review, you can view all symptoms and frequencies.
If you need to edit any of the symptoms, click the “Interventions” or “Actions” button in the upper right to take you back to the Actions/Interventions page. There you can edit any symptom.
CLICK “Complete and Start” button. You must do this to initiate your Reminders to the mobile app.
That’s it! Your Mito Health Journal is ready. Click the messages icon in the left navigation bar to see your Journal.
Note: You will start receiving your Reminders in the app the next day.
