Wellframe, a Boston, MA-based mobile-enabled care management solution has been awarded a patent for a mobile-enabled method to monitor and improve patient compliance with care programs. Wellframe’s mobile-enabled care solution extends the reach and effectiveness of a clinical team by delivering a customized, interactive, daily health checklist to patients on their smartphone or tablet, collecting valuable, day-to-day-health information, and enabling high-touch, sustained, and supportive relationships between patients and their care team through secure mobile messaging. The Wellframe mobile solution also supports a new concierge service to help patients get their benefits questions answered, navigate the healthcare system, and pursue their health goals—all through a single, direct communication channel.
“Our vision in developing this technology was grounded in finding a new way to put patients back at the center of the health system. We are able to deliver a personalized, adaptive care experience to each patient. We can enable each clinician to practice at the top of their license and spend more time caring for patients rather than chasing down patients on the phone. We believe that this is how care should be delivered, and we are pleased that our health plan and provider partners have realized the benefits of the Wellframe approach described in this technology patent,” said Trishan Panch, Wellframe’s Chief Medical Innovation Officer.
