GoMo Health Innovates for Women’s Health in the NJ InnovateHER Competition

GoMo Health was selected as a finalist for the SBA’s InnovateHER local competition and presented the Bedside Concierge™ Program at NJIT on May 25, 2017. The InnovateHER: Innovating for Women Business Challenge is a nationwide business competition to drive attention and resources to innovative products and services that make our lives easier and longer.

In the InnovateHER Challenge, SBA sought to amplify products or services that fill a need in the marketplace and have the potential for commercialization. The challenge officially kicked off in winter of 2017 with local competitions to be hosted by universities, accelerators, clusters, scale-up communities, SBA resource partners, and other economic development organizations.

As part of the GoMo Health Concierge Care® suite of mobile patient engagement solutions, the Bedside Concierge Program is a communications pathway that enables patients to direct requests for needs common in hospitals. The person-centered program increases satisfaction universally – enabling nurses to focus on direct clinical patient care, increasing their “Joy in Practice”, a crucial component of the NIH’s Quadruple Aim, and improving patient satisfaction as requests are directed and serviced in a shorter timeframe. With HCAHPS scores weighing heavily on reimbursements, hospitals delivering a positive inpatient experience are better positioned. Learn more about Concierge Care by clicking the button below.

Healthy Father’s Day Activities Your Dad Will Appreciate

June is Men’s Health Month, and this year we encourage you to celebrate Father’s Day by looking after dad’s health. Men in the United States have a shorter life expectancy than women, so men’s health awareness is even more important than ever before. Here are some ideas for ways to show dad your appreciation, while encouraging a healthy lifestyle.

Encourage a tune-up

Just like changing the oil in his car, there are certain health tune-ups that all men should take. Believe it or not, men visit their health care providers less frequently than women. This Father’s Day, encourage your Father to get routine cholesterol, diabetes, and blood pressure screens. These can help detect diseases common in men, and lead to prevention or early intervention. For a list of regular screenings for men, click here.

Test your chef skills

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men in the United States, killing 321,000 men in 2013—that’s 1 in every 4 male deaths. Spend some quality time with dad and enjoy a meal together by cooking a heart-healthy meal for him this weekend. Here are some recipe ideas to get started.

Get some fresh air

As a society that spends most time indoors in front of a computer screen, the health benefits of fresh air include a boosted immune system, more energy and decreased stress. Looking for something fun to do outdoors? Here are some ideas:

  • Go on a hike – This website can help you find some trails near where you live.
  • Golfing with dad – There is nothing more quintessentially “Father’s Day” than golfing!
  • Fishing – Check out your local lake, stream, or tackle the ocean with a daily charter.
  • Attend a baseball game – It’s America’s pastime, and many ballparks will have Father’s Day deals. Check your local team’s website to see if they are offering any discounted tickets. PLAY BALL!

Gifts that will make an impact

Looking for a gift that encourages a healthy lifestyle for Dad? Here are some of the most popular:

  • Reusable water bottle
  • A pull-up and dip bar, like this one.
  • A good pillow
  • Fitness trackers such as Fitbit or Apple Watch
  • Bluetooth headphones
  • Custom gifts: You don’t have to break the bank to show Dad you care. Here are some free gift ideas for Dad, courtesy of Good Housekeeping.
