“WiseThink uses the person’s health goals, as outlined by their physician or health professionals, and then, uses patent-pending methods for engagement to personalize self-care management and supporting healthcare interventions,” explains Ralph Donaldson Jr. WiseThink’s digital health solution uses personal engagement techniques for health literacy, health activation, social determinants, and medication adherence to interpret and analyze the complex factors preventing people from achieving their treatment and healthy lifestyle goals.
The company’s Digital Health Engagement platform— WiseConnect®—harnesses Patient Generated Health Data (PGHD) from FDA approved medical technologies along with information from surveys, smartwatches/wearables (i.e.Fitbit, Garmin, Apple) into an easy to read, user friendly platform for the person, their family members and healthcare providers.
Digital Health done right, empowers people and their health team to manage health using a proactive head-light view, not brake-light
PGHD is automatically captured through the cellular network into the WiseConnect® platform from sensors configured on blood pressure cuffs, glucometers, weight scales, EKGs, spirometers, medication trackers along with nutrition and activity data. By using a series of algorithms, the WiseConnect® platform analyses PGHD linked to the alerting workflow engine to determine the type and degree of support needed by the person to immediately send a Proactive Engagement Request to the appropriate physician or healthcare professional (e.g. health coach/CDE, clinical pharmacist), and in certain instances, to local agencies better equipped to support people with non-medical resource needs (e.g. Food Bank, Behavioral Health, Transportation services).
Using PGHD, WiseConnect® understands how well the person is adhering to their physician's self-care regimen. The self-care regimen is used as the basis for progress tracking and helps the person to know their target health numbers. WiseConnect® uses a Scorecard, similar to a report card in school, to measure personal progress and offer ideas to earn extra credit and/or improve their grade before the next reporting cycle. As people strive for better grades, they begin to adopt healthy habits into their lifestyle. “By making digital health simple and seamless into the person’s daily routine, the person begins to build confidence in taking these daily actions leading to a good health result, creating a sense of personal empowerment,” says Donaldson Jr.
The WiseConnect® platform has demonstrated excellent results in reversing pre-chronic conditions back to normal within nine months and helping people diagnosed with a condition to better manage their health avoiding unnecessary ER visits and hospitalizations. Additionally, the WiseConnect® platform gives better transparency to care quality and outcome based Provider pay-for-performance programs. WiseConnect® provides a real-world solution to Helping People Adopt Healthy Habits.
