WELLESLEY, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Harvard Pilgrim today announced a collaboration with Wellframe, positioning Harvard Pilgrim as the market leader in providing the highest quality support of members’ care and a more coordinated experience with members’ doctors. By digitally delivering the resources and support needed to address comorbidity, wellness, and social determinants of health, the Wellframe solution helps members build trusted relationships with Harvard Pilgrim primary nurses that enable real-time interventions.
Wellframe’s patented health management solution extends the reach and effectiveness of Harvard Pilgrim’s clinical team by delivering clinical programs to members’ smartphones or tablets in the form of a customized, interactive, daily health checklist. By engaging members in these programs, Wellframe collects valuable information relative to members’ day-to-day health, and facilitates high-touch, sustained, and supportive relationships between members and their care team through secure mobile messaging.
“Our new collaboration with Wellframe will enable our nurse managers to interact with our members instantaneously, whether our members are at home, at work, or traveling,” said Harvard Pilgrim Chief Medical Officer Michael Sherman, MD. “Members can send direct messages securely and privately to their primary nurse right from their smartphone, and get the care and support they need to manage their conditions, navigate the healthcare system, and achieve their health goals. It takes our best-in-class disease management program to a whole new level.”
“We are proud to partner with a fellow Massachusetts-based innovator,” said Jacob Sattelmair, Wellframe CEO. “As a market leader with a holistic approach to health management, Harvard Pilgrim is pioneering new ways to deliver comprehensive member support outside of traditional care settings. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to help them deliver even more value to members through their health management services.”
