Madison-based health tech company, Wellbe Inc., extended its leading online patient navigation and engagement platform with the addition of two new partners — Physiotec and Staywell — to its CarePlus Solutions Program.
In the face of the converging forces of consumerism and value-based care, hospitals are seeking solutions with multiple capabilities to enable robust patient participation. Wellbe’s CarePlus Solutions Program brings together best-of-breed capabilities from innovative partners that offer advanced capabilities for online care delivery. Physiotec is a world leader in online rehabilitation programs and Staywell delivers the most comprehensive and up-to-date library of guidelines-based content. Now available as plug-and-go options on Wellbe’s class-leading cloud-based Connected Care platform, they provide customers with the flexibility they need to tailor their solutions to their program needs.
Wellbe founder and CEO James Dias states, “The addition of these two new members to the expanding Wellbe portfolio of building blocks, furthers our commitment and ability to give hospitals and clinics the solutions they require to address payer and consumer expectations for value-driven care. Our clients now have the benefit of incorporating world-class capabilities from two industry leaders on the proven platform they have grown to trust and rely on.”
Through the partnership with Physiotec, healthcare providers can now easily add professionally developed, clinically appropriate exercise and rehabilitation videos to their Connected Care solutions to engage patients with online physical therapy.
“While digital in-practice and remote care are on the agenda of healthcare systems all over the world, very few organizations have managed wide implementation of easily accessible and working solutions. The market value resulting from the strategic partnering of our organizations extends well beyond our technologies. We are excited to empower patients and healthcare professionals providers with solutions based upon our combined knowledge and expertise,” says Mathieu Gobeil, Director of Business Development of Physiotec.
Partnering with StayWell provides Wellbe customers a simple solution for offering their patients up-to-date, guidelines-based, effective, and engaging education content from the industry’s most respected source.
“StayWell specializes in the kind of credible, engaging content that healthcare consumers need; the kind that grabs people’s attention and drives positive outcomes,” said PJ Bell, Co-Chief Content Officer for StayWell. “Integrating our content into Wellbe’s solution will provide a solid foundation of accurate, easy-to-access information. It’s going to help people reduce their risk of future health problems, manage current conditions, and prepare for and recover from procedures.”
