Allayo Adds Action Messages to Virtual Health Assistant
Mobile app now empowers physicians and pharmacists to send patients direct messages that trigger recommended health care activities and education.
(PRWEB) January 31, 2014
Today Allayo announced that Allie – their innovative virtual health assistant app – will offer an action messaging infrastructure that can be used to enhance patient outreach and improve patient health. Acclaimed at HealthBeat 2013 as one of the coolest new apps, Allie provides health care consumers with an easier way to arrange for appointments, prescription refills and lab work, and delivers health care reminders that also let consumers win gifts and rewards for their healthy behaviors.
The newly introduced capabilities take advantage of Allie’s full range of capabilities to access a variety of health care services such as appointment setting, prescription refills, ordering supplements and labs and creating healthy activity reminders. Action messages allow physicians, dentists and pharmacists to communicate directly with their patients, and to connect their communication directly to an action the patient can choose to take. For example, a physician can follow up with a patient to provide treatment reminders and collect feedback on the patient’s visit experience or confidence with the treatment plan, or a dentist can suggest a maintenance program for their patients undergoing whitening treatments and enable a set of reminders associated with the treatments. The messages and actions take place within Allayo’s secure mobile app to ensure patient privacy.
“As more providers prepare their practices to address the coming changes associated with the affordable care act, triple aim goals and meaningful use incentives, we are seeing a greater focus on establishing better mechanisms for patient outreach,” said Sunil Masand, co-founder and Product Lead of Allayo. “Allayo provides an effective way to connect the health care industry more closely to their patients and an easier way for patients to absorb the information and take the actions that will help them get better and stay healthy.”
