We want to provide a Personal Health Assistant to 10% of everyone that takes prescription medications. It's doable, but we need the help of Payers and Accountable Care Organizations. And there doesn't need to be a cost to anyone, neither the payer (health insurance company) or the person using our Personal Health Assistant. In fact, we guarantee that savings to the Health Insurance Company will outweigh the savings or we will pay the difference. That is not a typo.
We've done our part. We've created a Personal Health Assistant for everyone, young or old. They don't need a smartphone, a cellphone or even to use the Internet or email.
HealthAssist, the personal health assistant works! Analytics from thousands of patients show that HealthAssist moves more than 15% of non-adherent people to adherence. When its time to take a medication or schedule a condition-related exam, HealthAssist is always there. And there's more. HealthAssist looks up information that is important to the user, be it today's weather forecast, the horoscope, stock performance or other information important to the user. Delivering value each time creates the "stickiness" for continued engagement with HealthAssist.
Yes, with your help, we can make a difference. A big difference!
Let's save LIVES! HealthAssist, our personal health assistant moves over 15% of non-adherent people to adherence. If we applied that to the 125,000 deaths per year, we would save 15% or 18,750 lives. Okay, but our goal is 10%. That means we can save 1,875 lives each year. These deaths can be avoided. It is our responsibility to do our part. Lives matter and so is your participation.
Let's reduce Hospital Admissions!
35.4 million people were admitted in 2013. 3.54 million represents the 10% of admissions due to medication non-adherence. If we had everyone using HealthAssist, we would reduce the hospital admissions by 345,000. Reaching our goal of 10% means 34,500 people could avoid being admitted to the hospital. It could be someone you know, or a family member.
And let's save healthcare costs. In one way or another, we all pay for them.
Let's use the halfway estimate. If it costs the U.S. Healthcare System $190 billion per year due to medication non-adherence, saving 15% of that amount would be $28.5 billion and 10% of that amount would be $2.85 billion. Now remember, each billion is worth 1,000 million. If you're a healthcare payer organization, contact us and we can show you specifically how much we can save your organization. Don't wait ... participate.
