Health Systems

The Challenge

One of the top challenges facing population health management is the need to activate and engage patients in their own care.

Increases in chronic diseases, an aging U.S. population, and longer lifespans are all factors pointing to a need for better ways of delivering healthcare. Changing behaviors and moving patients from passive care receivers to self-management actors requires providing patients with new strategies, tactics, and support.

The expanding availability of online technologies create opportunities to strengthen the partnership between patients and healthcare providers and improve work flow management, chronic disease management, and compliance. The proliferation of technology in healthcare, however, necessitates a strategy of sensible integration to formulate a cohesive population management offering.

Our Solution

Health & Wellness Innovations offers a highly scalable wellness platform designed to take advantage of the growing trends toward connected health, self-management, and remote care.

WATT™ - Wellness Anytime Through Technology is a unique online solution that strengthens the connection between patients and healthcare teams. WATT™ is designed with interactive features that allows patients to stay engaged in care, support, and lifestyle management outside the hospital or doctor’s office. Our platform is design using the latest technologies to allow for easy customization and integration with existing applications.

How It Works

The WATT™ platform is configured and easily integrated into a health system’s existing infrastructure to create a patient wellness portal.

Health practitioners have real-time access to a patient’s dashboard where exercise, diet and other health parameters are monitored. Timely support and advice can then be provided to keep patients on track and engaged in building healthier lifestyles. Content in the form of messages, health alerts, blog-type entries, calendar events, and news is entered into the platform for distribution. Structured programs for patients with high risk conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, stress, and obesity can also be offered to interested patients through the platform.

Patients establish a profile indicating their specific goals, health concerns, and exercise preferences. Based on these profiles, action plans, educational content, and personalized messages are delivered to patients as they login to the system. An interactive dashboard shows progress against goals and tracks diet, exercise and other biomarkers including blood pressure and blood sugar. Event calendars built into the dashboard keep patients informed about opportunities to participate in educational and recreational events of interest to them based on the interests identified in their profile. Patients use the online chat to communicate with the health care team anytime they have questions about wellness issues, nutrition, or exercise and can share their experiences with a community.
