Evidence-Based Behavioral Modification System for Medicare Patients Experiencing Hypertension, Diabetes, and High Cholesterol

November 12, 2019 (Asbury Park, New Jersey) – GoMo Health, the developer of the evidence-based BehavioralRx® science for behavioral and lifestyle modification and human resiliency, in collaboration with Optimus Healthcare Partners, an accountable care organization (ACO), and UnitedHealthcare, have launched a Concierge Care bot (virtual mobile engagement system) for Medicare patients to increase self-activation and resiliency to stay on prescribed medication therapy programs for improved management of dosing, wellbeing, health outcomes and monitoring for interactions.  The virtual care coordination program will focus initially on medication management related to diabetes, hypertension, and cholesterol.

The Concierge Care system also nurtures family caregiver participation and educates them throughout the health journey, empowering them with specifics on medication management for their loved one to better facilitate adherence. Using its proven machine learning technique, BehavioralRx logically customizes caregiver directives based on location and proximity to a loved one and considers time zone and other personalization variables so that local caregivers receive tips they can actualize live, while remote caregivers are instructed on best ways to encourage adherence from a distance.

“The BehavioralRx science embedded in our Concierge Care system of care has been applied to numerous complex and chronic health conditions including cancer, cardiovascular, diabetes, opioids/substance abuse, mental and behavioral health and maternal child health and has produced ePROs including a 221% increase in medication adherence, 64% reduction in ED usage, 75% reduction in (inpatient) readmissions, and increased attendance in scheduled physician appointments”, says Bob Gold, Chief Behavioral Technologist, GoMo Health.
