IRVING, Texas, July 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Plan for Health (APH), a provider of data analytics technology to help organizations improve health benefits programs, today announced it is teaming with iHealth Labs, Inc., a provider of mobile healthcare monitoring solutions. By integrating with iHealth's mobile health devices and solution, and incorporating the health vitals compiled from iHealth's devices into APH's data analytics engine, employers are able to reduce employee health costs, improve health outcomes and empower individuals to be hands-on managers of their own health.
iHealth's software platform and devices make it easy for consumers to track their health vitals, including blood pressure monitoring, weight, glucose levels, activity levels and blood oxygen levels. The devices automatically sync the data to smartphones or tablets and the information is then uploaded into APH's Poindexter, a data analytics risk engine custom-built for population health management, to provide a complete health picture for each individual. If an individual shows they are maintaining a chronic condition, this may result in lower health plan co-pays, deductibles or premiums.
"iHealth's line of mobile health devices and solutions enable our users to lead healthier lives by taking a more active role in managing health conditions like hypertension and diabetes," said Yuchen Wang, Chief Solution Officer, iHealth Labs, Inc. "Through our partnership with Advanced Plan for Health, we're now able to help patients not only better understand their health but also realize savings when it comes to their healthcare expenses."
"We're excited about partnering with iHealth Labs to offer their mobile-monitoring technologies to our clients," said Neil Godbey, CEO, Advanced Plan for Health. "We need to encourage individuals to change their mindset from patient to consumer. This behavioral approach is how healthcare is being transformed, and we want to be on the cutting edge of this trend. The end result of this partnership is to provide value – in terms of better health outcomes and savings – to self-funded employers, payors, providers and patients alike."
APH announced last month that it also partnered with digital health company Tesser Health. Together, these partnerships help APH to build consumer health management capabilities into the Poindexter platform.
