Encourage patients to manage their health care

The value of a personal health record, patient portal and connectivity of a health information exchange

FollowMyHealth Achieve

Engaging patients, enhancing and automating communications with care team

Patients themselves are among the most important “caregivers” in the healthcare system. They make decisions every day that impact their health and wellbeing, especially in regards to managing chronic conditions. Nevertheless, months may pass between face-to-face encounters with providers, and what happens outside the office ultimately has a much greater impact on patient health than what happens inside the office.

The challenge lies in how to connect with patients more consistently—to interact and stay connected in between visits to truly change behaviors that contribute to their condition.

Our Achieve solution leverages consumer wireless technologies and the FollowMyHealth™ patient engagement platform, allowing providers to engage patients directly in the ongoing management of their care. This enables providers to monitor the patient’s compliance with care plans and initiate interventions as needed to influence behavior and impact outcomes.
