Imagine a world where healthcare organizations are empowered to deliver high-quality healthcare, regardless of location, or resources, while improving outcomes for all patients. As the only patient engagement platform designed just for community health centers, this is exactly what HAND grantee CareMessage envisions. But, for most of us, the world suddenly feels very different than it did just a few weeks ago.
Currently partnering with over 200 Federal Qualified Health Centers, free clinics and healthcare centers across the country, CareMessage is leveraging the rising use of mobile technology in underserved communities and creating enormous opportunities to educate patients in need. In using a simple medium of communication tied to a powerful platform, CareMessage delivers the best of both worlds - reducing the cost of care for health care organizations while most importantly, significant improvements in health outcomes.
While we all in our own way are having to navigate this current way of life, low-income, chronically ill patients need reassurance, guidance and care, especially if they are simultaneously struggling with the challenges of poverty and chronic disease. See what CareMessage is doing in response to the Covid-19 pandemic to support those most vulnerable here.
