The Challenge: Flighty Patients & Payment Reform Don’t Mix
Despite their ability to fly off shelves, mobile health and wellness devices rarely hold the attention of users long enough to make a measurable impact on either. Studies have shown that approximately one third of devices are not used after a period of 6-12 months.3 With Fitbit devices, specifically, 50% of users abandon engagement within the first two weeks.4
Our Solution: A Totally New Breed of mHealth Platform
Amitech worked with our client to develop a breakthrough mHealth platform that leverages near real-time streaming data, psychographic user profiles and a predictive analytics engine that sets the platform apart from other health and wellness apps. This technology goes beyond the traditional, simplistic biometric reporting (like number of steps), instead offering up truly useful insights and personalized “nudge” suggestions to impact key behaviors in the moment.
