A cloud-based platform for patient activation

The biggest issue facing healthcare today is the chronic disease epidemic. According to the World Economic Forum, the global cost of the five leading non-communicable diseases is expected to total $47 trillion over the next 20 years. Controlling the rise in chronic disease requires that people actively participate in the self-management of their own health and wellness. When this is achieved, outcomes will improve and the cost of care will be lower.

NexJ Connected Wellness is a cloud-based platform for patient activation. It is used by healthcare professionals (HCPs) to empower patients to proactively self-manage their own health and wellness. It enables patient activation by delivering health education, enabling greater collaboration between patients and care providers, and coaching people to achieve their health and wellness goals.

Strong evidence supports a positive relationship between patient activation levels and health-related outcomes. As well, evidence shows that increases in patient activation can generate between a 5% and 20% overall cost reduction.

“The research shows that more activated patients have better health outcomes and better care experiences than patients who are less activated.”
