Assisting Hospitals With Their Population Health and Patient Engagement Goals
Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) April 12, 2015
Influence Health, the healthcare industry’s only personalized digital consumer engagement and activation platform, and Tactio, a leader in science-based mobile solutions to track health and physical activity, will showcase enhanced patient engagement technology and mobile health apps at HIMSS 2015 at booth #3148 in Chicago, Illinois.
As consumers are increasingly using mobile devices to access the web; the need for interactive, comprehensive health applications on-the-go continues to rise. Using Tactio and Influence Health, healthcare organizations can provide a comprehensive health tool for patients, providers and caregivers. The technology combines patient generated data, connected health tracker devices, EHR data from disparate systems and the EMPOWER enterprise patient portal into one powerful tool for consumers to easily view, track, manage and improve their health.
“Partnering with Tactio provides an additional layer of information expanding EMPOWER’s capabilities and helping healthcare organizations strengthen patient participation in their health,” stated Bradley Case, GM/SVP, Clinical Solutions, Influence Health. “By delivering a consumer-centric mobile tool to track health data such as physical exercise, weight, blood pressure and more, providers can bridge the time and information gap between physical encounters to effectively reinforce healthy behaviors from afar – ultimately improving population health.”
With over 4 million mobile health app downloads in 17 languages, Tactio connects to 100+ health and fitness devices such as A&D Medical, Apple HealthKit, Fitbit, Glooko, Jawbone, Nonin, RunKeeper, Telcare, Withings, and more, to encourage patients to track their health easily on the go. The app helps healthcare providers meet patients where they are, enabling just-in-time patient education and care coaching through the power of the mHealth.
“With Influence Health and Tactio, patients can track their health on their iPhone, iPad and Android devices. They can receive the coaching and education to live healthier lifestyles and better control chronic diseases such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes, atherosclerosis and COPD,” stated Michel Nadeau, P.Eng., President, CEO and Founder, Tactio Health Group. “Additionally, with consistent branding across an organization’s website, patient portal and mobile health apps, patients are able to access the healthcare organization they trust – anytime, from anywhere,” Nadeau further stated.
“We are helping healthcare organizations reach patients beyond the hospital walls to encourage healthier behaviors,” stated Peter Kuhn, CEO, Influence Health. “With the combined powerhouse of a mobile health app and enterprise patient portal at their fingertips, patients are equipped to effectively view, manage, track and improve their health.”
