March 17, 2021 GMT

BOISE, Idaho, March 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Healthwise, a leader in evidence-based health education, technology, and services, and CareSimple™, the platform simplifying remote patient monitoring (RPM) for virtually all patients, today announced a multi-year strategic partnership. Together, the companies will combine health education and next-generation RPM to engage patients, reduce costs, ensure appropriate care, and help people better manage their health care experiences.

Healthwise offers thousands of interactive, unbiased, action-oriented health education materials that instruct and engage patients about their health conditions. CareSimple offers an end-to-end RPM solution that integrates into electronic health records and ships directly to patients, allowing payers and providers to offer virtual care with little to no operational complexity.

Using the Healthwise® for Digital Experiences Solution directly from CareSimple, care managers can send award-winning health education resources to patients—including articles, digital tools, and videos—based on the patient’s health condition, language, and health literacy level.

Research proves the link between health literacy, patient outcomes, and healthcare costs. Healthwise’s evidence-based education helps bridge cultural and health literacy gaps. It is written in plain language, uses behavior change science, and motivates patients to take an active role in their health.

“We are excited to team up with CareSimple because we share a common passion for empowering people through better care experiences,” says Dave Mink, Healthwise’s Chief Client Officer. “This partnership helps patients be more informed and better prepared, and it helps care managers continually monitor patient progress and the usage of patient education resources.”

CareSimple’s seamless patient-to-cloud-to-EHR data transmission, smart alerts, effective engagement, and automatic documentation capabilities enable care managers to focus on patient care and give providers a holistic view of their patients’ health to help prevent costly clinical events and improve care. 

“Offering health education resources based on an individual’s health condition, language, and health literacy level has proven to have a demonstrable impact on how they are able to navigate their health care experience,” said Dr. Alfons Pomp, Board Member of CareSimple. “We’re looking forward to collaborating with the Healthwise team and leveraging the power of our remote patient monitoring platform in combination with their Digital Experiences Solution to elevate a caregiver’s ability to engage and educate more patients about their conditions.”
