Xealth and Healthwise Partner to Empower Patients With Digital Health Programs

Digital Health Programs Help Achieve Better Health Outcomes for Patients

SEATTLE, WA, and BOISE, ID, March 3, 2020—Xealth and Healthwise, Inc., announced today a collaboration designed to help improve patient outcomes. By combining Xealth’s digital health platform with high-quality patient education and tools from Healthwise, patients will soon get the information, support, and positive reinforcement they need to improve their health and better manage chronic disease.

Xealth, a leader in enabling digital health at scale, is a digital health prescribing platform that enables clinicians to easily integrate, prescribe, and monitor digital health tools for patients from their EHR workflows. Healthwise, a leader in evidence-based health education, offers interactive, unbiased, action-oriented materials that instruct and engage people about their health conditions. Using the Xealth platform to connect patients to Healthwise educational content can help patients adhere to prescribed therapies, manage their health, and adopt healthy lifestyles.

“Providing Healthwise information and tools through the Xealth technology and platform will provide patients with the prescribed information they need to make successful health changes,” said Dave Mink, chief client officer for Healthwise. “Well-informed patients receive higher-quality care and better health outcomes—generally at a lower overall cost.”

“Digital health is the future of health care—we are constantly discovering ways to use new technologies in an approach that will benefit patients and clinicians alike,” said Jay Reynolds, chief technology officer for Healthwise. “This partnership with Xealth is one more step toward achieving that goal.”

“We believe that digital pathways should help strengthen the physician-patient relationship,” said Mike McSherry, CEO and co-founder of Xealth. “By making Healthwise education available through the Xealth platform, providers can easily send necessary information to patients in a way they can review when it is best for them and refer back. Providers also know if a patient viewed the materials, informing any needed follow-up.”
