Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 02, 2015
Tea Leaves Health, a leader in business intelligence and consumer analytics for the healthcare industry, has partnered with UbiCare, a leader in digital patient education and engagement solutions for individuals and populations.
“Healthcare is now digital and mobile,” said John DeMeo, Senior VP Sales & Business Development at UbiCare. “Hospitals and healthcare systems want and need innovative solutions to connect, engage and then prove impact in real time. Now part of Meaning Use 2, digital messaging is the most effective way to reach patients and consumers with the required patient-specific educational resources. Digital messaging also more effectively manages patients’ health and builds a relationship with them. This directly improves outcomes for both individuals and populations, improves patient experiences and lowers per capita cost, thus helping hospitals achieve the [CMS] Triple Aim.”
“Today’s healthcare consumer has high expectations of their hospital’s technology,” added Tea Leaves Co-Founder Jim Schleck. “Digital, direct-to-consumer communication has become a major tool for hospitals to build patient/provider relationships. Tea Leaves looks for strategic partners that provide complementary services that help providers meet today’s challenges. We were very impressed by the simplicity and power of the UbiCare solutions and immediately saw real value in integrating their technology and content with our Strategic Growth Platform. By partnering with UbiCare, we now provide even more powerful Big Data business intelligence platforms to our healthcare clients.”
For 12 years, hospitals and health systems have used UbiCare’s solutions to connect with patients digitally, educate and engage them in their care, and provide ROI to the hospital with real-time data. UbiCare’s unique technology is customizable and its evidence-based, stage-specific messaging guides patients through their care continuum with the right easy-to-understand information at the right time via email, social media and text. UbiCare is also certified to help hospitals meet Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements for patient-specific education resources.
“The companies’ products remain separate, but we’ve been able to augment our vast data library with UbiCare’s data and communication capabilities in innovative ways that add value to our shared clients,” Schleck said, “Tea Leaves identifies the right patients and consumers to automatically deliver the UbiCare messaging.”
DeMeo added, “Jim and I feel strongly that through our partnership of best-in-class solutions, our mutual healthcare clients will be able to reach both individuals and specific populations with messaging and content that is very relevant to them, across the health spectrum, from wellness to chronic disease management. This will help providers succeed with population health management strategies in value-based payment models and achieve the Triple Aim.”
