AUSTIN, Texas, July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Rallyhood, an Austin-based community platform, has announced a strategic partnership with The Behnke Group, a San Antonio-based healthcare consultancy firm.
CEO Bill Behnke says the time is now to introduce a more compassionate and efficient mechanism for managing aftercare and to help enable a more meaningful connection with patients when they leave the clinical setting. Behnke says he is determined to make Rallyhood a household name, which will ultimately improve the patient experience and improve communications and care options for millions of people.
"We were interested in working with Rallyhood because of the uniqueness of its offering and its team." Behnke said. "Health organizations need solutions to ensure the best possible adherence and outcomes, especially in the first 30 days, but this critical piece of the patient's experience happens outside of clinic walls. Rallyhood helps health organizations deliver services that patients and caregivers really need to help people heal in their real lives. I look forward to facilitating introductions to leading health organizations and helping to educate the market on Rallyhood's services."
Rallyhood's web and mobile platform enables customers to activate branded communities for patients as part of their care plans, giving their personal networks one place to organize emotional, practical and financial support. The platform allows providers to customize content per patient-population to ensure that accurate information can be easily accessed. By engaging the person's trusted community, hospitals can extend the continuum of care in a more holistic way, enrich the patient experience, and expand their brands into the daily, mobile lives of the people they serve, long after discharge.
Rallyhood has already established an impressive roster of healthcare clients. The platform is being used to activate a patient's personal network in the health and recovery process, as aftercare is critical for a patient's long-term outcomes. Rallyhood's healthcare customers include Seton Healthcare Family, Dell Children's Medical Center, LIVESTRONG Foundation, Caring for Military Families/Elizabeth Dole Foundation and others. In addition to healthcare solutions, Rallyhood offers enterprise solutions for nonprofit, education and fitness organizations as well as free consumer tools to help organize a variety of purpose-driven groups.
