Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) November 03, 2016 -- b.well, the heart of your healthcare, today announced the launch of its consumer-facing health management platform. b.well connects all aspects of an individual’s health care in a single place. The new platform is geared toward giving individuals and families the convenient, modern healthcare experience they deserve. It is now available for download on iOS and Android, and also as an online web application.
b.well aggregates, connects, and presents health data to consumers in a way that is simple, understandable, and complete. Users begin their personal health journey with b.well by completing a simple multi-step process to aggregate and connect personal health data across physicians, connected health platforms, and wearable devices. Users gain immediate access to rewards that bolster engagement with the platform early and often, and encourage them to complete each step over time.
Based on the health data that is collected, b.well provides consumers with guidance and education to help them understand their complete health profile. The platform also identifies gaps in existing care so that users can make informed decisions about how to close them.
Finally, b.well makes managing everyday aspects of healthcare easy with a concierge-like service. b.well helps users find and book doctor appointments, reminds them when it’s time for preventive care, offers telemedicine services where you can talk to a doctor in less than 15 minutes, helps consumers save money prescription drugs, and gives them access to transparent financial and insurance information.
“With preventable diseases comprising 86% of our healthcare costs, we’ve reached a turning point in our healthcare system. Consumers see the connection between lifestyle and chronic disease, and they don’t want to make the same mistakes their parents and grandparents did," said Kristen Valdes, Founder and CEO of b.well. "It’s just hard to know where to start because the healthcare system moves too slowly to accommodate the shift from sick care to well care. With b.well, we're making change possible outside of the traditional walls of the healthcare system."
Taking a hierarchical approach to data collection, b.well can pull down any connected data from HealthVault, MyChart, or any health information exchange. It integrates with most EHR systems and patient portals. Whether consolidating complete medical record information or integrating wearable and genomic data, b.well leverages personal health data to make the management of health and insurance simple.
"We’re no longer content with ‘healthcare as usual,’” said Sheri Kitchin, Vice President, Business Development of b.well. “With b.well, consumers can finally interact with their healthcare in a way that puts them in control. It’s the remote control for your health.”
Specific features of the b.well platform include the ability to:
- Safely and securely store, manage, and share medical records and family health history all in one place.
- View financial information about benefit plans, co-pays, deductibles, and even the cost of prescriptions at nearby pharmacies.
- Integrate and sync wearables and other quantified data to track sleep, fitness, nutrition, and more.
- Take a personalized health assessment and use genomic screening to learn what genes can tell you about making healthy decisions.
- Create a Health Tribe that allows users to share all or part of their health data with trusted family members and friends.
Until now, the b.well platform has been utilized exclusively by small and mid-sized health plans and employee wellness programs. Today, individuals and entire families can begin their health journey with b.well for just $10/month.
