Extend your reach with personal health programs
Healthwise Learn To Earn engages people with action-oriented health courses. The courses include tracks that focus on people’s specific goals, motivations, needs, and behaviors. Individuals choose the tracks they need, and get information tailored to their personal preferences. These self-management programs provide a cost-effective way for you to support people who:
Are managing chronic or high-risk conditions, including asthma, CAD, diabetes, and depression.
Want to reach a healthy weight or stop smoking.
Aren’t being reached today, or who have health conditions not covered by your existing programs.
Deliver trusted health content in refreshing, engaging ways
Your health coaches can enroll people in self-management programs by prescribing the programs through your care management system. You can enroll people as part of your incentive program, through your HRA, or through other system triggers. And you can let people sign up on their own through your portal or PHR.
Once people are enrolled in Learn To Earn, they can choose the education track that they most identify with. Within each track, members progress through short, engaging lessons that teach key learning objectives by using:
Online articles with useful tips and features.
Personal stories about people with similar health issues.
Multimedia videos that explain skills for self-management.
Targeted information, decision aids, quizzes, and other tools.
Learn to Earn measures member progress and completion of the health courses and then reports back to your system. Learn To Earn can easily integrate into your incentives systems so you can reward member performance.
Grab their attention with the right information
Even though people might share a health condition or lifestyle issue, their experiences with the condition are different. Learn To Earn recognizes that people need information tailored to their specific circumstances.
Healthwise uses a five-step process based on mental models and personas to create each Learn To Earn course. We bring together findings from user interviews, apply behavior change science, and generate tailored content to make sure we’re engaging people with just the information they need.
When more people get tailored information that they need, they’re more likely to take steps to manage their health—and that makes it easier for you to keep your population healthy, your costs low, and your standing high with HEDIS and other quality measures.
Engage people with multimedia health programs
Healthwise virtual health coaches are Web-based multimedia programs that present information in a way that makes people feel like they’re having a conversation with a real coach. The self-management programs address high-value health topics including:
Asthma, diabetes, and depression.
Taking beta-blockers and low-dose aspirin to prevent heart attacks, and taking statins for high cholesterol.
Stress, smoking, sleeping, and being active.
Healthy weight, healthy eating, and positive thinking.
The virtual coach asks questions to understand what kind of help each person wants. Based on the person’s answers, the coach provides tailored information and helps the person create a personal plan. At the end of the program, people get a summary of the conversation and a personalized action plan they can print and keep.
Ix Conversations track people’s responses so your organization can provide better support.
Prescribe motivating, personalized health tools
Healthwise Ix Conversations are a great way for you to support more people without using additional staff resources. Your health coaches can prescribe virtual coaching programs and save themselves valuable time on the phone. And you can add the programs to your website, portal, or PHR to reach more people with personalized support. For example:
Your clinicians can prescribe “Beta-Blockers to Prevent Another Heart Attack” to patients who have recently had a heart attack. The program helps people understand how beta-blockers work and why it’s important to keep taking them.
For people who want to get in shape, provide “Getting Active” at your portal, website, or PHR. Your members will discover good ways to become more active and to deal with things that might get in their way.
And for a member considering back surgery for his low back pain, your health coach can prescribe “Dealing With Low Back Pain.” The program explains the pros and cons of surgery and successful nonsurgical ways to manage pain.
Shift to the most engaging health education available
There is simply nothing else available today like Healthwise Ix Conversations. The innovative blend of evidence-based medicine, behavior-change science, and storytelling captures people’s attention, keeps their interest, and motivates them to take real steps to manage their health.
Whether people are healthy and want to stay that way, or are managing a chronic condition, Ix Conversations help them learn to care for themselves and make better health decisions. Taking on some of your highest-impact issues, our virtual health coaches leave a lasting, positive impression on the people you serve.
