Engaging communities around the patient’s healthcare journey can have a game-changing impact on a person’s health and recovery.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 02, 2016
Rallyhood, a community collaboration platform that organizes, connects and engages patient communities, was selected by the Seton Healthcare Family, a member of Ascension, as a winner of its 10th annual Healthcare Innovation Awards. More than 85 companies from across the country applied for the awards which were announced April 27th at Seton’s The Future of Care: Innovation Luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel.
“We are delighted to be chosen by Seton Healthcare as one of their Innovator of the Year winners,” said Patti Rogers, CEO of Rallyhood. “Engaging communities around the patient’s healthcare journey can have a game-changing impact on a person’s health and recovery. Studies show that strong social support has been proven to improve outcomes and adherence because most of the patient’s journey happens in their everyday life, outside the walls of the healthcare facility. Rallyhood helps providers ensure patients have the benefit of engaged communities as part of the care continuum."
Seton evaluated technologies that could better connect all parts of the healthcare system - physicians, pharmacists, nurses, social workers, caregivers, insurers, families and patients. The healthcare provider sought visionary trailblazers with the best and brightest inventions, discoveries, and solutions to elevate healthcare communication and transform care.
Rallyhood provides a full-suite of tools to activate and empower patient communities – around an individual or a common diagnosis. It is the only platform that connects these communities to the brand and content of the providers they know and trust. Rallyhood supports more than 200,000 users and works with organizations in the healthcare and non-profit sectors including Dell Children’s Medical Center, Seton Medical Center of Austin, Livestrong Foundation, YMCA and Girl Scouts.
