Healthwise teams up with US Preventive Medicine to develop personalised health prevention plans

Healthwise : 13 February, 2008  (New Product)
US Preventive Medicine and Healthwise have teamed up to give people the information they need to help prevent sickness and chronic conditions.
US Preventive Medicine will use Healthwise consumer health information at, a programme that assesses an individual’s health status, and then provides a customised plan and support to help the person get healthier.

“The evidence-based consumer health information from Healthwise is instrumental to The Prevention Plan’s goal of helping people live a long and healthy life,” said Frederic S Goldstein, US Preventive Medicine president and COO. “The more people understand their own health and their own bodies, the more likely they are to make responsible decisions that affect their health. This trustworthy and easy-to grasp health information gives people the resources they need to be successful in the Plan because they better understand their health status and how to lower their risks.”

US Preventive Medicine and Healthwise share similar visions and missions of helping people make better health decisions by giving people health information and tools when they are ready to be engaged.

By combining information with personalised prevention plans, the companies hope to help more people improve their health and contribute to lower health care costs.

“The cost, quality, and workforce challenges of health care can be improved with a transformation in the role of the consumer,” said Donald W Kemper, Healthwise founder and CEO. “The integration of efforts by Healthwise and US Preventive Medicine gives people more of the information, tools, and resources they need to prevent or better manage serious health issues and chronic conditions.”

The Prevention Plan, an online programme now in the pre-release stage before being introduced nationally in the second quarter of 2008, focuses on health assessment and intervention for each member. The Plan gathers information about an individual and then develops a customised prevention plan based on his or her specific needs and risks. The Prevention Plan offers personal coaching, online tutorials, educational resources, reminders, integration with other health benefits, and a reward programme.

In the spirit of helping people better manage their health and reach their own personal goals, will feature the trusted, evidence-based health information from the Healthwise Knowledgebase. The Healthwise Knowledgebase includes more than 7,000 topics on health conditions, medical tests and procedures, medicines, and everyday health and wellness issues.
