Warm Health Delivers First-in-Category Healthcare Communications Smartphone App
MINNEAPOLIS --(Business Wire)--
Warm Health, a provider of innovative care management communications,
today announced the Warm Health App, the first of its category to
deliver ongoing, interactive care and disease management programming to
health plan members in addition to providing a direct, secure
communication link between the member and their care manager. The app is
currently available for the iOS platform and can be found in the Apple (News - Alert)
"We're extremely proud to bring this app to the marketplace for
healthcare organizations and their members," said Warm Health CTO Tim
Cameron. "Health plans benefit from a secure, encrypted cloud-based
communication channel with their members. Care management teams benefit
from a completely integrated communication system that's capable of
reaching out to all members while highlighting those in need of help.
Members benefit from the convenience of being able to read personalized
communications on their schedule, and from the ability to ask for help
whenever they need it. This app represents the next generation of
interactive healthcare communications."
The smartphone app allows health plans to deliver any Warm Health
interactive clinical program, such as our Maternal Health or Diabetes
programs. When a particular member appears to need help, or asks a
question, the care manager can contact the member directly through the
app using an innovative chat feature. The Warm Health App also features
a journal where members can log their mood, weight or a host of other
personalized data points which can serve as a starting point for
discussions with their care manager.
"The Warm Health App is the next step in the evolution of our
member-focused, interactive communications platform," said Dan Freier,
Warm Health CEO. "All Warm Health communications are designed from the
ground up to allow for personalized healthcare conversations. By
offering Warm Health programs and healthcare messaging via automated
phone calls, text messaging services, e-mail and web-based dashboards,
and now via a Smartphone app, we are continuing an evolutionary cycle
that our clients and their members are asking us to deliver. The
development of the Warm Health App underscores our commitment to
innovate and redefine what is possible in healthcare communications."
The Warm Health App is available now for iOS in the iTunes Store.
Members will need an account issued by their health plan to use the app.
Warm Health is currently working on an Android (News - Alert) platform version, which
is expected in June 2012.
