Shadow Health

Anyone good with APA? I am writing a paper about my Shadow Health experience (**** ***** was my patient), and I am unsure how to cite Shadow Health in APA format. Anyone able to point me in the right place? I just moved, and my APA book has gone MIA...

If that is the patients name you need to edit and remove it from your post. HIPAA!

I have no idea what Shadow Health is either, and what are you citing in your paper? A book, journal, interview?

If you need to reference your patient you can use Initials or a pseudonym and use Ms. Jane Doe the first time then Ms. Doe after that.

A google search will lead you to sites that can tell you how to use APA, just make sure you are using the correct edition (most current is 6th).

Tina Jones is a prototypical patient and animated character on the Shadow Health modules. 'She' is not a real patient, but rather an animated character, similar to Minnie Mouse.

There is a multitude of online sites that can help you with APA formatting without needing the book. Just make sure you use one from a reputable source, such as a college or university.

Purdue University OWL is one of the "gold standard" websites for everything APA. Should have everything you need.

Good afternoon! My name is Brooke, and I'm the Marketing Product Manager at Shadow Health. We're excited that you're writing a paper about your experience with Shadow Health!

I checked in with our team about how to cite our technology in APA, and they shared the following with me. Please note that this is for the Health Assessment DCE -- if you are using the Pharmacology or Advanced Health Assessment DCE, you'll want to adjust the first part of the citation accordingly.

Health Assessment Digital Clinical Experience (2017) [Computer software]. Gainesville, FL: Shadow Health.

I hope this helps! If we can help in any other way, please don't hesitate to let us know by emailing
