Combines Comprehensive Health and Wellness Resources with Limeade’s Technology Platform for a Holistic, Educational Total Population Health Solution
BOSTON, Mass. – September 18, 2013 – Health Dialog today announced a complete, end-to-end lifestyle and chronic condition management solution for employers, healthcare providers and health plans. The offering, part of Health Dialog’s comprehensive Total Population Health approach, leverages the company’s technology alliance with Limeade to deliver the best of modern, technology-enabled, engagement-focused wellness programs with chronic care management tools that include a library of award-winning decision aids and health coaching expertise.
The offering builds upon Health Dialog’s existing WELLNESS Dialog® solution which identifies the right people at the right time, and provides them with the resources and support they need to manage and maintain their health. The solution, powered by the Limeade platform, can be tailored in different ways to match the goals, strategies and resources available to each population ranging from cultural engagement to health improvement to health cost reductions.
“Our innovative offering provides a single point of access to educational resources across the full spectrum of health and wellness to help increase patient engagement and, ultimately, change their behaviors so they can live longer, healthier, happier lives,” said Robert Mandel, MD, Chief Executive Officer, Health Dialog. “We are pleased to again team with Limeade to include a robust, innovative technology component that allows users to get engaged and stay engaged while gaining access to information and resources they need to make more informed decisions about their healthcare, regardless of whether it is related to lifestyle management or a chronic condition.”
The solution is delivered via web, mobile and phone – and is available in select international markets. It includes the in-context and personalized recommendation of social challenges, individual goals and population-specific resources. It also helps employers and other population health managers to take full advantage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and its support of incentive-rich wellness. The new solution includes Health Dialog’s full library of Shared Decision Making® aids for chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer, providing a holistic educational resource for end-to-end healthcare needs. It was designed to promote health education, exploration and long-term behavioral change.
