CareNet and Healthwise agree to help consumers take an active role in their care

Healthwise : 18 July, 2008  (Company News)
CareNet and Healthwise have agreed to work together to help consumers take an active role in their care and CareNet will begin using Healthwise Connect’s decision-focused and action-oriented health information within its care management environment.
“Adding the Healthwise decision-support content to our suite of services is a natural progression for our organization,” stated John Erwin, president of CareNet. “For the past 20-years, millions of consumers have reached out to our registered nurses 24/7 for support in their time of need. We are a very established and trusted resource as our registered nurses average more than 18 years’ experience. We see significant trends toward empowering consumers and patients to evaluate and participate in making their own health related decisions. Our team of experts serves as a natural extension for our clients to assist their members with making informed and smart decisions.”

Healthwise Connect will provide CareNet nurses with quick access to plain-language health information, allowing them to better support shared decision-making with patients. The nurses will use more than 7,000 evidence-based topics, including interactive decision-support tools that advance consumer engagement: Actionsets help people manage chronic conditions, Decision Points help people make important treatment and test choices, and Interactive Health Tools help people understand and assess their risk for certain conditions.

“Healthwise is pleased to work with CareNet so its clients can get evidence-based information that will help people take a more active role in their care,” said Donald W Kemper, Healthwise founder and chief executive officer. “Giving people the information they need, when they need it, will help them make the health decisions that are right for them.”

Healthwise Connect links call tracking software to the in-depth, evidence-based, and actionable health information in the Healthwise Knowledgebase. The Healthwise Knowledgebase includes topics on health conditions, medical tests and procedures, medicines, decision-support tools, and everyday health and wellness issues. Healthwise Connect supports shared decision-making and expands program offerings from triage to disease management.
