Now more than ever, it’s in healthcare professionals’ best interest to help their patients stay adherent and adopt healthier behaviors in their day-to-day lives.
Leading organizations are discovering that modern, A.I.-based digital technology makes it possible to replicate the results that one-on-one coaching has been proven to provide.
So, how does it work?
A.I.-based virtual health coaches work like Siri with a nursing degree.
Using natural language understanding paired with deep integration into native device functions such as calendars and wearables, virtual heath coaches offer capabilities that go far beyond a pill reminder – answering questions about side effects, providing education about chronic conditions, recording doses of medication and offering customizable options for users, such as preferred method and frequency of communication. It’s technology that truly puts patients in the driver seat of managing their health.
And, because healthcare professionals require a simplified way to monitor and manage each patient, the best solutions allow them to easily configure the coaching plan to cater to the needs of the individual. Dashboards allow easy tracking of not only medication adherence, but also data generated from home medical devices and exercise-tracking wearables.
This improved flow of information makes it easy to be responsive to any changes in a patient’s health – greatly increasing the likelihood of desirable outcomes while automatically capturing that data that stakeholders are looking for.
See for yourself how a virtual health coach makes it easy for healthcare professionals to empower patients.
