HealthAssist is an application designed to help people who take prescription medication better able to manage their condition. The application is free to the users and will be supported by WellCare Today and “healthcare” sponsors who wish to have their name or message viewable to the user.
It consists of several components:
HealthAssist Companion Website:
To improve the use-ability of HealthAssist, we have created a companion website. You can access the site at http://assist.wellcaretoday.com. Using the same username and password, you can setup any or all of the features of HealthAssist, but through the convenience of using a large PC screen and keyboard. You can also access the CouponAlert feature, providing you with condition-related coupons that you may print-at-home or in some cases add to your loyalty card or store digitally on your smartphone.
CalendarAlert is the function that enables the user to setup timely reminders so that a text is sent to the user in accordance with the reminder timetable they have setup. A snooze feature enables the user to snooze the reminder should the text arrive at a time that is not convenient for them.
RefillAlert is the function that reminds the user when it is time to contact the Pharmacy to renew their prescription. In future versions, we hope to help automate this process.
HealthAlert is the function that connects them to various web addresses that 1.) Have condition-related information or appropriate links on how to better manage their condition, 2.) Connect to condition-related dialogue forums, 3.) Connect to condition-related information on clinical trials, or 4.) Connect to a condition-related chat room.
PHRAlert is the function that enables the user to store medical histories, insurance information, emergency contact information and advance directives. Protected by a username and password, this information can be made available to a medical provider in case of an emergency. In future versions, we hope to enable the user to better manage the disparate data in other EMR software that may be stored by their medical providers or personal private health records such as Microsoft HealthVault or Google EMR.
SponsorAlert is the function that will enable the condition-related sponsor to send a text message up to 1 time per month to their sponsored audience. The message must be approved by WellCare Today.
