San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 19, 2013
Today, Allayo announced that Allie – their innovative virtual health assistant app – will now incorporate assistance for dental care. Acclaimed at HealthBeat 2013 as one of the coolest new apps, Allie provides health care consumers with an easier way to arrange for appointments, prescription refills and lab work, and delivers health care reminders that also let consumers win gifts and rewards for their health behaviors.
Allayo has started pilots with dentists to help their patients improve dental health and make it easier for patients to schedule dental care. Dentists participating in the pilots are inviting their patients to download a version of Allie complete with the dentist’s information and access to dental health reminders and messages.
“My patients often tell me that they would brush and floss more regularly if they had an occasional reminder,” said Dr. Yelena Ostrovsky of Cable Car Dental voted 2010 Best in Bay Area Medicine, San Francisco, CA. “Until now, I only had a chance to help my patients with their dental health a couple times a year – during exams and cleanings. With Allie I can stay connected to my patients to deliver personalized care and provide on-going support to help them stay healthier.”
“We believe that one of the challenges of health care is that consumers have to pull together all the pieces they need to stay healthy,” said Robert Capelli, co-founder and CSO of Allayo. “With Allie, we wanted to give people an easier way to stay on track with the routine care that helps them stay healthier. As soon as people started using Allie, they started asking us about dental. It just makes sense as an overall approach to health care.”
