DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Anthelio Healthcare Solutions, the largest independent provider of technology and services to hospitals, physicians practice groups and other healthcare providers, announced it is launching ENGAGE, a next generation mobile application for patient engagement that they have acquired from The Garage, a leading health innovation start-up company. ENGAGE informs, educates, entertains and connects patients with their health care providers and enriches their experience. ENGAGE also gives providers and payers flexibility to have dynamic content available for patients through easy to use web-based content management software. ENGAGE is currently published on the Apple App store as an iPad application.
ENGAGE has the most cutting edge information “hub” that centrally brings all stakeholders -- patients, providers, and payers -- on a mobile platform. According to an Oct. 2013 article in Digital Journal, the global mobile health solution market will grow at a CAGR of 42.4% over the period of 2012-2016 due to increased adoption of tablets and smartphones. ENGAGE allows healthcare providers and payers a new cost effective option to address these growing demands for health information access from consumers.
“We are excited about ENGAGE, which will provide a new mobile experience for patients across the country. We believe in engaging patients on the go and ENGAGE is the perfect app for that. With this customizable platform, organizations can deliver a variety of health information to the patient on their personal mobile device, whenever and wherever they want it,” said Asif Ahmad, CEO of Anthelio Healthcare.
ENGAGE is currently deployed at various healthcare facilities in the state of Florida and has received positive responses. “ENGAGE is a first of its kind. I can personalize content to my patients and I see them more satisfied with an ENGAGE unit in their hands,” said Dr. Rafael Pinero from Pinero Medical Group in Orlando, FL.
Anthelio Healthcare and The Garage will showcase ENGAGE in booths 975 and 4088 at the 2014 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, February 24-27, at the Orange County Convention Center, West Building in Orlando. HIMSS brings together 37,000+ healthcare IT professionals, clinicians, executives and vendors from around the world.
