PR Newswire release

Las Vegas, Nevada, March 5, 2018 – Mayo Clinic Global Business Solutions and Wellpepper, Inc. announced today that Mayo Clinic will be providing best practices for interactive care plans on the Wellpepper platform. Wellpepper is a clinically-validated patient engagement platform used by major health systems to improve outcomes and lower costs of care.

Wellpepper customers who use any electronic health record will be able to use Mayo Clinic care plan protocols to help patients follow their physicians’ instructions outside the clinic to self-manage and improve their outcomes.

Mayo Clinic Care Plans will be available through Wellpepper Marketplace, which launches later in the second quarter of 2018. Mayo Clinic Care Plans initially will be available to cardiac rehabilitation, headache and sports medicine patients. The care plans eventually will encompass hundreds of patient interventions showcasing the breadth of Mayo Clinic expertise.

“Wellpepper and Mayo Clinic share a continuous commitment to providing care that ultimately benefits patients,” says Steve Ommen, M.D., interim medical director of  Mayo Clinic Global Business Solutions. “We look forward to the opportunity to share our best practices with other health systems through the Wellpepper platform.”

Wellpepper’s interactive care plans are based on a framework of building blocks that support creating any type of patient instructions. Wellpepper patients are more than 70 percent engaged in their care plans, and control trials conducted by researchers at Boston University and Harvard University show clinically meaningful patient outcomes for patients using the Wellpepper platform.

“We are thrilled to launch the Wellpepper Marketplace starting with one of the leading academic medical centers in the world,” said Wellpepper CEO Anne Weiler. “Our customers and their patients will benefit immensely from access to Mayo Clinic best practices. Analysis of patient experience and outcomes from these care plans will enable continual improvement and new insights to deliver better care.”

The Wellpepper Marketplace will offer health systems the choice of best practice care plan templates from leading health systems and Wellpepper’s out-of-the-box care plan templates. These turnkey solutions will enable quick deployment of evidence-based and clinically-validated care plans to improve patient outcomes.

HealthLoop, Wellpepper, and Livongo Collaborate to Advance Digital Health

Three companies engaged with CMS toward inclusion of patient engagement and outcomes tracking in the MIPS Improvement Activity for provider reimbursement.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, UNITED STATES, December 13, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Approved digital health tools will soon be eligible for Medicare reimbursement. Beginning in 2018, physicians and other healthcare providers participating in the Merit Based Incentive Program (MIPS) track of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), can qualify for reimbursement for using clinically endorsed digital health tools to remotely guide and monitor patients outside of the clinical encounter. The new Improvement Activity recognizes the important value that digital patient engagement tools play in driving healthcare quality and lowering costs.

The new CMS MIPS Improvement Activity, entitled “Engage Patients and Families to Guide Improvement in the System of Care,” enables healthcare providers to be reimbursed for the remote monitoring, review, and interpretation of patient generated health data (PGHD) gathered through clinically endorsed mobile patient engagement applications. This provides an incentive for physicians to use digital health tools to track patient progress and improve the quality of ongoing care outside of the hospital or clinical setting while empowering patients to take more active roles in managing their own health.

Three digital health companies, HealthLoopWellpepper, and Livongo – leaders in this fast-growing market – collaborated in working with CMS to raise awareness of how PGHD and digital patient engagement tools can play critical roles in improving the quality of care and outcomes for patients. Top executives from the three companies also participated in the CMS PGHD Round Table in Washington, D.C. on December 6 to further the importance and understanding of the value of PGHD in patient care.

HealthLoop, Wellpepper, and Livongo can improve the level of personalized care for patients by providing ongoing guidance and assessments outside the physician-patient encounter. Physicians and care teams can use these tools to provide and adjust care plans, assist with ongoing disease management, and support return-to-work and patient quality of life improvement. Data collected from these digital health platforms can be used to track patient outcomes in support of continuous improvement initiatives and for participation in alternative payment models.

“Patient generated health data is a valuable tool in patient care,” said Anne Weiler, co-founder and CEO of Wellpepper, a clinically-validated platform for patient engagement that provides personalized, digital patient treatment plans delivered via mobile devices, SMS, email, Web and interactive voice interfaces. “We’re pleased that CMS has recognized this, and is enabling the collection and analysis to be used in demonstrating quality patient care.”

While many consumer digital devices like smart watches and activity trackers are in use by patients, the new MIPS Improvement Activity requires that physicians and other providers use clinically endorsed patient engagement and outcomes tracking tools that provide an active feedback loop – meaning they provide timely (real or near-real time) PGHD to the care team or generate timely automated feedback to the patient, such as automated patient-facing instructions based on care plan adherence or glucometer readings. These patient engagement tools may inform the patient and the clinical team of important parameters regarding a patient’s status, adherence to care plans, comprehension and indicators of clinical concern.

“This new rule is an important step forward for physicians and patients using digital engagement tools,” said Dr. Ben Rosner, CMIO of HealthLoop, a software solution that enables care teams to engage all patients before and after clinical encounters through automated daily check-ins. “For clinicians already using a patient engagement platform, these efforts will help satisfy the Improvement Activities category and earn 10 Advancing Care Information bonus points. Eligible clinicians must simply attest to completing the activity for at least 90 days to meet 2018 reporting requirements. Financial incentives aside, engaging with patients is the right thing to do. Practices using automated patient engagement solutions see reduced readmission and complication rates, lower call center volume, better online ratings for physicians, and, most important, happier, healthier patients.”

“It’s not enough to want providers to expand care beyond the four walls of the office, it’s about empowering consumers and updating all parts of the system,” said Michael Sturmer, Livongo Senior Vice President of Health Services. “The new CMS MIPS Improvement Activity further connects digital health with providers and care practices and is a significant advancement in making digital health part of the fabric of the health care experience. It is better for patients and providers, and that’s better for all of us.”

Wellpepper Wins $125K Grand Prize in Alexa Diabetes Challenge

NEW YORK: Today, the Challenge judges awarded Wellpepper the $125,000 grand prize in the Alexa Diabetes Challenge. Wellpepper is the team behind Sugarpod, a concept for a multimodal diabetes care plan solution using voice interactions.

The multi-stage Challenge is sponsored by Merck & Co., Inc., Kenilworth, New Jersey, U.S.A., supported by Amazon Web Services (AWS), and powered by Luminary Labs. In April, the competition launched with an open call for concepts that demonstrate the future potential of voice technologies and supporting Amazon Web Services to improve the experience of those who have been newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

“Technology advances are creating digital health opportunities to improve support for people managing life with a chronic disease,” said Tony Alvarez, president, Primary Care Business Line and Customer Strategy at Merck & Co., Inc. “One purpose of the Alexa Diabetes Challenge was to identify new ways to use the technology already present in a patient’s daily routine. The winner of the Challenge did just that.”

Sugarpod is a concept for an interactive diabetes care plan solution that provides tailored tasks based on patient preferences. It delivers patient experiences via SMS, email, web, and a native mobile application – and one day, through voice interfaces as well. Since much of diabetes management occurs in the home, the Wellpepper team recognized that integrating voice was the natural next step to make the platform more convenient where patients are using it most. During the Challenge, Wellpepper also prototyped an Alexa-enabled scale and foot scanner that alerts patients about potential foot problems, a common diabetes complication.

“Sugarpod helps newly diagnosed people with type 2 diabetes integrate new information and routines into the fabric of their daily lives to self-manage, connect to care, and avoid complications. The Challenge showed us the appeal of voice solutions for patients and clinical value of early detection with home-based solutions,” said Anne Weiler, co-founder and CEO of Wellpepper.

The Challenge received 96 submissions from a variety of innovators, including research institutions, software companies, startups, and healthcare providers. The panel of judges, independent from Merck, narrowed the field down to Wellpepper and four other finalists, who each received $25,000 and $10,000 in AWS promotional credits and advanced to the Virtual Accelerator. During this phase of the competition, the finalists received expert mentorship as they iterated their solutions in preparation for Demo Day. At Demo Day on September 25, 2017, the five finalists presented their solutions to the judges and a live audience of industry leaders at the AWS Pop-up Loft in New York to compete for the grand prize.

“The Alexa Diabetes Challenge has been a great experiment to re-think what a consumer, patient, and caregiver experience could be like and how voice can become a frictionless interface for these interactions. We can imagine a future where technological innovations, like those provided by Amazon and AWS, are supporting those who need them most,” said Oxana Pickeral, Global Segment Leader in Healthcare and Life Sciences at Amazon Web Services.

EvergreenHealth Selects Wellpepper as Mobile Patient Engagement Solution for Total Joint Replacement

SEATTLEJan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Wellpepper, Inc., a clinically validated platform for patient engagement, today announced that EvergreenHealth, an integrated health care system that serves nearly 850,000 residents in northern King and southern Snohomishcounties in Washington State, has selected Wellpepper as the mobile engagement solution for all total joint replacement and musculoskeletal care plans. The project was made possible at EvergreenHealth with a generous donation from The Schultz Family Foundation, a private not-for-profit foundation founded by Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks Corporation, and his wife Sheri.

Patients with musculoskeletal issues that require surgery or rehabilitation will use Wellpepper on their mobile devices to track their outcomes and adhere to their care plans. This information will enable patients, physicians, and other healthcare providers to track progress and patient-reported outcomes in real-time to improve care. Wellpepper enables health systems to implement their own care instructions on its task-based platform and makes it easy for patients to understand and adhere to their care instructions.

“Across our organization, we strive to be a trusted source for innovative care solutions for our patients and families, and our partnership with Wellpepper helps us deliver on that commitment,” said EvergreenHealth CEO Bob Malte. “Since we began using Wellpepper in 2014, we’ve seen how the solution enhances the interaction between patients and providers and ultimately leads to optimal recovery and the best possible outcomes for our patients.”

The Wellpepper remote care management solution is designed to be easy-to-use and highly engaging for patients while being flexible and easily customizable for use in clinical practice. It is clinically-proven to improve patient adherence and outcomes with over 70 percent patient engagement.

Health systems are increasingly looking for solutions to enhance patient care while reducing costs, and this is particularly true in total joint and musculoskeletal scenarios. The new Comprehensive Care Model for Total Joint replacement announced by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid aims to reduce the cost and quality variability of procedures.

“We are seeing a lot of interest in using the Wellpepper platform in orthopedic and total joint replacement scenarios,” said Anne Weiler, co-founder and CEO of Wellpepper. “Interest and adoption are largely being driven by our ability to customize the care plans based on the health system’s own protocols, personalize the plans for each patient and collect the standardized outcomes required as part of the new Center for Medicare and Medicaid requirements.”

The Wellpepper platform doesn’t dictate care plans; instead it provides a set of task-based building blocks that health systems and providers can customize to reflect their own methodologies and practices. The patient interface is simple and straightforward, so patients get only the tasks and questions they need on a given day.

Press Release: Sentara Healthcare Chooses Wellpepper

Sentara Healthcare Chooses Wellpepper for Mobile Patient Engagement in Headache Care

SEATTLE, Nov. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Wellpepper, Inc. today announced that Norfolk, Va.-based Sentara Healthcare is partnering with Wellpepper to provide a mobile patient engagement solution for headache care. Wellpepper is a clinically validated patient engagement platform. Sentara is an integrated not-for-profit system of 12 hospitals and more than 100 sites of care, including a robust neurosciences program. Sentara patients who suffer from migraines and other severe headaches are able to use the Wellpepper mobile application to report their headache experiences in real time, including pain, triggers and use of over-the-counter or prescription medication. Sentara Neurologists are able to use the information collected to diagnose, treat and monitor the ongoing progress of headache patients with the goal of better outcomes, fewer office visits and lower healthcare costs.

“We believe Wellpepper can help us provide timely care for headache patients,” said Alexander Grunsfeld, MD, medical director for Sentara Neurosciences. “Sentara encourages patients to be partners with us in their care and the Wellpepper solution offers a new opportunity to achieve that goal.”

Currently, when patients are referred to a neurologist, they are asked to complete surveys and try to remember what triggered their headaches. Follow-up surveys are typically given every 3-6 months. The result is often multiple office visits and patient care is delayed until the root causes for headaches are eventually discovered.

Data collected through the Wellpepper application is presented to healthcare providers via a clinical dashboard. Neurologists can easily communicate with headache patients to alter treatment plans without the patient having to unnecessarily visit the office. Wellpepper also provides a way for patients to log pain levels using the visual analog pain scale and to record medication use and how much.

“Too often, data collection from patients is disconnected from their care plan,” said Anne Weiler, co-founder and CEO of Wellpepper. “Being able to use patients’ own smartphones and tablets to provide care plans and show results using Wellpepper is not only a way to help drive patient engagement, it is a way for healthcare providers to gather strong, real-time data and patient-reported outcomes in a way that after-the-fact surveys cannot.”

Approximately 18 percent of women and 6 percent of men between the ages of 12 and 80 suffer from migraines in the U.S. According to a study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, migraine cases require, on average, 2.3 more physician office visits than non-migraine controls (9.1 vs 6.8, respectively) and were significantly more likely to have been seen in an emergency department (20.7% vs 17.6%) or admitted to a hospital (4.5% vs 2.8%).
