Reducing the cost of care

We reduce emergency room visits, eliminate unnecessary hospitalizations, and minimize re-admissions for members with chronic illnesses.

As a result, we’re helping payors and providers save money and avoid CMS penalties.

Keeping members independent

We collect and monitor real-time health information enabling early intervention by Wellbridge health coaches in responding to the needs of members and their families. We communicate positive and empowering choices to keep members independent and living at home.

A Balanced Approach

We influence both physical and behavioral health to change the way members live with their conditions. We combine real-time member information with interactive video technology for a more timely, time-efficient and cost-effective care management solution. And, we maintain the human touch to enhance member adoption and continued participation in the care plan.

Benefits

Combining interactive video technology with real-time patient information for a more time-efficient and cost-effective care management solution.

For the Insurance Provider

 

Visibility into member health status all day, every day

Health Plan Care Managers see up-to-the-minute reporting on their members. They may schedule a video chat or act more urgently if the data suggests a point of concern, thereby intervening sooner and improving outcomes.

Increased compliance with follow-up appointments

Wellbridge health coaches significantly influence follow-up medical appointments through reminders and video-conferencing to help members increase compliance in managing their chronic conditions, and reducing emergency room visits.

Seamlessly integrated with health plan IT

Wellbridge applications are HIPAA compliant and provide member data that is secure and auditable, offering the ability to fully integrate with health provider back-end systems.

Fewer re-admissions and emergency room visits

Real-time reporting, video-chat technology, focus on physical and behavioral health, and just the right amount of personal attention provide a unique solution to lower the cost of care while improving patient outcomes.

For the Member

Increased care plan adherence through regular engagement

Wellbridge Health engages the member all day long by mixing personalized content with updates and progress reporting. Interactive care plans keep members involved in maintaining their health.

 

Easy adoption through a simple, intuitive interface

Utilizing a custom designed multi-touch tablet application built specifically for older adults and at-risk populations, Wellbridge Health technology provides an engaging and supportive interactive experience.

 

Fewer re-admissions and emergency room visits.

We give face-to-face a new meaning, using video-conferencing for meaningful member-centered conversations about their current health conditions. Enhanced social interaction reduces feelings of isolation by making face-to-face interaction a click away.

 

Improved quality of life while managing chronic conditions

The all-day virtual care manager enhances members’ ability to live at home and in their community. Members enjoy a higher quality of life while managing chronic conditions.

Wellbridge reminded me of keeping up on my goal. Then [the coach] would check up on me and help me remember. We spoke 2-3 times a week and that helped me remember. I am getting old and don’t remember things so well.”
