Voice, Podcasts, Partnerships, and Amazon: Wellpepper’s most popular blog posts of 2018

Looking back over the past year, at our most popular blog posts, we suspect that these topics will remain popular in 2019 as well. New technologies and approaches to consumer and digital health have still not reached their full potential, and there’s still lots to learn.

Not surprisingly, a few of our most popular blog posts related to Amazon. In talking with regular people, healthcare organizations, and digital health folks, we find that they are split on whether they want the retail and cloud services giant to get into healthcare, but whatever side of the fence you’re on, there’s no denying they could have a big impact. Right Alexa?

We’re also seeing more and more interest in a continuum of care approach: technologies and experiences that span the patient experience, and really help patients and care-givers self-manage, so our announcement of our partnership with Ensocare was also a very popular post.

Continual learning is something both technology folks and healthcare folks share, so it comes as no surprise that our round-up of great podcasts for healthcare transformation enthusiasts, was also a popular post.

Ensocare and Wellpepper Streamline Patient Discharge and Engagement

Ensocare and Wellpepper Streamline Patient Discharge and Engagement

The innovative healthcare companies have partnered to offer care management solutions that enable hospitals to improve the post-acute patient experience.

OMAHA, Neb. – December 6, 2018 – Ensocare, a leading provider of technology-enabled care management solutions, has announced a new partnership with Wellpepper, an award-winning and clinically-validated patient engagement platform used by major health systems to improve outcomes and lower costs of care.

Under the terms of the agreement, Wellpepper’s highly actionable and engaging mobile treatment plans sourced from leading providers such as Mayo Clinic and others will be offered as a supplement to Ensocare’s existing discharge management tool. With Wellpepper, healthcare providers who use the Ensocare Transition application will have the opportunity to customize post-acute treatment plans based on established care protocols enmeshed within the Wellpepper system, creating an unprecedented patient experience.

“Wellpepper was the perfect fit for our organization,” said Luis Castillo, CEO of Ensocare. “One of the biggest challenges we keep hearing about from our hospital and skilled nursing clients is the difficulty of getting patients to adhere to their care plans after leaving the facilities. They’re seeing costly readmissions and care regression that could have been prevented.

“With Wellpepper, we’re able to offer a solution. Their expansive yet endlessly customizable care plans let providers distill complex care into essential components any patient could follow, and I can’t wait to see the positive patient outcomes that occur when our transition software combines with their ingenious treatment plan solution.”

Anne Weiler, CEO and co-founder of Wellpepper, also emphasized the value of the partnership for both patients and providers.

“Partnering with Ensocare was a natural progression of our goals,” said Weiler. “We’re dedicated to helping healthcare providers mitigate the danger of readmission for their most high-risk patients. Ensocare’s transition solutions can be seen as the first step in setting up that treatment plan. If a patient is left to languish in a hospital bed while a case manager struggles to find them a post-acute care setting, that patient is going to immediately be at a disadvantage, regardless of the quality of the care plan. By combining these healthcare IT solutions, a facility can reduce any and all friction that would otherwise occur during the patient’s recovery process.”

Persons interested in learning more about either solution are encouraged to contact Ensocare or Wellpepper to discuss their current situation and explore opportunities to streamline their discharge and patient engagement protocols. Learn more at Ensocare.com and Wellpepper.com.
