Wellth, a market innovator and leader in the use of mobile technology to reduce hospital readmissions, today announced the company has partnered with G8Way Payments, a leading provider of benefit card and incentive card account solutions, to reduce hospital readmissions. Wellth administers hospital discharge programs for those patients dealing with serious health issues post-discharge, following a significant surgery or adverse event. Wellth’s easy-to-use mobile engagement platform drives engagement and compliance in hospital discharge protocols through simple tools, and by offering incremental cash incentives via G8Way’s Healthy Lifestyle branded, reloadable prepaid cards.

“Readmissions lead to over forty billion dollars ($40 billion) in additional hospital costs annually here in the U.S,” said Matt Loper, CEO of Wellth. “Wellth’s innovative mobile solutions, leveraging incremental incentives to drive compliance in hospital discharge protocols, enable us to save hospitals as much as three thousand dollars ($3,000) per patient per year – a significant cost savings for the large hospitals and health systems we currently serve.”

“Receiving a custom branded incentive card with your name on it, and knowing as a patient you can earn as much as one hundred and fifty dollars ($150) if you participate and complete activities prescribed post-discharge following a significant surgery, is a powerful motivator in ensuring patient compliance,” said Mark Hall, CEO of G8Way Payments. “We’re excited to be integrated into the Wellth platform, and serve as the vehicle for high risk patients to receive rewards for protecting their health.”
