Among its distinctive components are a Care Management Dashboard which allows care managers to quickly focus on high-risk patients, Digital Care Plans which use evidence-based protocols, and a Personal Health Assistant, accessible via mobile or web, that allows patients to view their health data, care plans, receive alerts and to track goal progress.
With one click, physicians and care managers can prescribe patients a clinically appropriate and comprehensive treatment plan.

Healarium has the capability to aggregate data from multiple sources, including hospital and physician electronic health records. Healarium will continue to support Apollo Care Connect’s growth.
