NexJ Connected Wellness is a digital platform for cloud-based population health management that incorporates mobile and wearable technologies to deliver patient engagement for chronic disease management.

It is based on research, proven at trial, and purpose-built for the objective of engaging and empowering patients with chronic disease to better manage their own health and wellness. By doing so, patients can achieve their health goals, payers can lower costs, providers can improve care to patients, pharmaceutical manufacturers and retail pharmacies can improve medication adherence.

Through extensive research and trials, NexJ has distilled three essential elements of patient engagement that now comprise the foundation of the NexJ Connected Wellness platform:

educate

Deliver interactive, infographic patient education including an audio-visual record of the discussion and decisions that patients can share with family, friends and advocates.

collaborate

Share patient-friendly care plans to keep patients informed as to their condition, next steps and ‘what if’s’. Secure messaging, online scheduling and assessments improve collaboration and care coordination.

motivate

Deliver a personal health coaching plan and on-going support to patients to encourage sustainable behavior change

Leverage the Patient’s Personal Circle of Care

circle-of-care

The patient’s personal circle of care enables patients to create their own trusted network of healthcare professionals (HCPs), family, friends, and advocates – anyone they choose to include. Patients can securely share their personal health information and message with anyone in their personal circle of care. Caregivers can monitor the patient’s progress and provide encouragement and support when it’s needed.

The personal circle of care makes person-centered health a reality by placing the patient at the hub of decision-making and managing their own health and wellness. This approach promotes wellness and proactively addresses illness to improve outcomes for patients while reducing their burden on health systems.

NexJ Connected Wellness is Based on Research, Proven in Trials

 

NexJ Connected Welllness is founded on respected healthcare industry research and has been proven in trials to effectively engage patients with chronic disease to better manage their own health and wellness, contributing to improving patient outcomes and lower costs.

Highlights of our investment in research and development include:

  • 17 research trials and 8 deployment evaluations involving over 4,000 participants have been completed or are in progress
  • 7 peer-reviewed publications are complete and 9 are pending final results and review

Selected results from these trials include:

At Black Creek Community Health Centre in Toronto, Ontario, patients with Type 2 diabetes participated in a trial in which they tracked their blood glucose levels, exercise and diet using NexJ Health Coach, the NexJ Connected Wellness app for personal health coaching. During the trial, participants who initially had a blood glucose level considered ‘out of control’ brought their levels to ‘closer to control’ (p=0.04) without any change in medication. The study concluded that electronically assisted health coaching could be a viable and effective means of managing chronic conditions through improved health behaviors across all levels of socio-economic status.  Published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, measured the impact of patient-friendly care plans and demonstrated dramatic results. During the trial, 96% of patients were satisfied with their physician encounter versus 38% satisfaction with their prior doctor visit, and there was an 80% reduction in patient follow-up phone calls to their physician. The study found that enhancing physician-patient communication also helps patients to be more actively involved in their care and that this approach could be easily generalized.  Learn more.
