NEW YORK, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Department of Health claims that health literacy is an essential tool for reaching "full health potential," stating that low health literacy leads to poor health outcomes and higher rates of hospitalization. With this in mind, Smart Source LLC, a leading provider of solutions and technology in healthcare, announces a newsletter service to promote home and community based care, health and wellness: Wellness Education Newsletter Service (WENS). The service has already been recognized as a necessary means of managing health by government and community based care organizations across the U.S.
"In a recent phone survey, more than 44% of respondents reported a positive change in behavior as a result of our Wellness Education Newsletter Service," explains Tim Moore, Director of Healthcare Communications, Smart Source, Western Region. "Examples reported include 'stopped smoking,' 'a change to diet,' 'adopting healthy eating habits,' 'started exercising and feeling much better.'"
Smart Source's Wellness Education Newsletter Service provides individualized health education newsletters for adults and individuals with disabilities. The newsletters draw upon an extensive library of health education that covers a multitude of topics from disease management (like diabetes and asthma) to prevention of disease and injury. The service uses sophisticated data analytics - drawn from more than 130 data points - to deliver the right information to each person.
"We are learning that Wellness Education Newsletters are a necessary prescription for supporting adults and individuals with disabilities to remain at home or in a community based setting," continues Matt Leventhal, Regional Sales Manager West Coast, Smart Source Healthcare Communications.
