PDHI Integrates Healthwise® Knowledgebase and Care Support Pages Into ConXus Platform for Worksite Wellness Programs

Dec 01, 2010, 09:00 ET from Protocol Driven Healthcare, Inc. (PDHI)

BERNARDSVILLE, N.J. and BOISE, Idaho, Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Protocol Driven Healthcare, Inc. (PDHI) and Healthwise announced today an agreement to integrate the Healthwise® Knowledgebase and Healthwise® Care Support Pages into the ConXus Platform.

The ConXus Platform is used by wellness providers, health plans, brokers, and employers to deliver worksite wellness programs. Participants in these programs can now access more than 7,500 Knowledgebase topics on chronic conditions, wellness, medical tests, procedures, and medicines. Using ConXus Direct, a health-coach documentation system, coaches can now access Healthwise Care Support Pages in English and Spanish. Sharing these pages with participants during or after a coaching encounter helps empower them to self-manage conditions and to improve their health behaviors.

"Adding the Healthwise Knowledgebase to the ConXus platform now allows us to deliver health and drug information to employer clients," says Carol Staubach, Senior Vice President of Employee Health Management at WellNow, LLC. "And the Care Support Pages provide quality educational material to follow up the coaching encounter, which can be supplemented with our internal documents."

The Healthwise information has been integrated so that users can view it at the right time and in the right place—as part of their health and wellness program. The platform uses a flexible modular approach that allows worksite wellness program providers to deploy only those modules needed by each employer end client.

Healthwise Knowledgebase and Care Support Pages are now available as an option to all PDHI clients who license the PDHI ConXus Platform.
