Digital patient engagement solutions use digital technology — remote patient monitoring devices, tablets, and cell phones — to help patients conveniently navigate the healthcare system, comply with chronic care management guidelines, and remain safely at home even with complex conditions. Historically, efforts to communicate with patients have been inconvenient (i.e., patient portals, phone calls, faxes) and typically occur when it is expedient for the healthcare organization, not the patient. Patients are often left on their own to determine how to comply with new medication regimes or behavior change instructions to manage chronic illnesses. Digital patient engagement guides patients through their healthcare journey whether administrative or clinical in nature.

Clarify Health offers a suite of applications to drive improved patient engagement.

Conversa Health provides an interactive, dynamically updated communication platform.

Get Real Health offers EHR-agnostic longitudinal patient records.

mPulse Mobile uses interactive text messaging to engage patients across both operational and clinical domains.

Vivify Health offers a range of patient engagement solutions that cross the continuum of care.
