Founded in Los Angeles in 2012 by Constance L. Jackson, MPH and Chief Executive and Innovation Officer,
MediaHealth Technologies, LLC is an early stage research and development company in healthcare software solutions designed to improve patient and provider engagement, clinical decision making and provider workflow.
THE PLATFORM IS ADVAITA HEALTHWARE
a rewards-driven web and mobile-based software system that has application programming interface (API) capabilities with other software services to provide best practices and evidence based social and behavioral approaches to improve patient and provider engagement.
The conceptual framework of Advaita Healthware is a cutting-edge approach that will present a richer understanding of people’s behaviors, challenges and practices in managing one’s health. The concept of patient-centered care truly rests in the hands of the patient.
The healthcare and insurance industries are searching for technology tools to assist providers and patients in improving health outcomes. To reduce in-house IT costs for hospitals and doctors’ offices, the reasonably priced Advaita Healthware brand can be white-labeled.
Advaita Healthware is extending the boundaries on how patients and providers communicate outside the medical practice. The Advaita Healthware tool supports face-to-face interaction between the doctor and patient, and is merely a very important extension of the trusting and supportive environment a doctor brings to the patient in a clinical setting. Evidence-based and supportive multi-modal tools that include culture-centered features are the keys to achieving long-term use of the platform through collaborative efforts.
Mandates by the U.S. Affordable Care Act (ACA)
The ACA (Meaningful Use Stages 1 & 2) require physicians and healthcare facilities to incorporate electronic health records into the care delivery to improve chronic disease management, to reduce costs through workflow improvements, and to engage patients in managing or preventing certain diseases. Penalties have been imposed for non-compliance.
U.S. health leaders suggest that improving coordination of patient care through a team approach and the use of integrated health technology are the cornerstones in reducing costs and getting patients to manage their health.
Industry surveys indicate that over 95% of providers and hospitals have electronic health records and patient portals but lack appealing patient engagement tools that patients can adopt.
Patients as consumers are setting the pace for how healthcare is being delivered outside the doctor’s office, turning to the Internet and wearable devices for answers. But patients are also frustrated by the lack of choices they have to support managing their health.
