Engooden’s proprietary technology automatically surfaces actionable insights to its care navigators, allowing them to focus on the most clinically important updates and intervene with the right patients at the right time. The personalized service is popular with patients and helps with retention and improves physician satisfaction. Common patient success stories include results such as reduced HbA1c, weight loss, blood pressure, and much more.
“By identifying rising-risk and chronically ill patients, then intervening at the right time, we focus on providing whole-person care on behalf of our customers. I am thrilled to work with HAPevolve and look forward to reaching more patients with chronic conditions in the Pennsylvania region,” said Tom Ferry, president and CEO of Engooden Health. “With seamless EHR integrations and teams of skilled care navigators who manage the program, HAP members can quickly and efficiently implement Engooden and start reaching patients between provider visits.”
