Partnerships for Patient Well-Being
Pilot Program in Hypertension and Heart Disease
We are currently constructing a pilot program, the first of its kind, to educate patients newly diagnosed with hypertension what the diagnosis will mean to their health and wellbeing over time. The goals are:
The program will include ongoing patient medical education, testing and certification of the knowledge, follow-up to measure compliance, and analysis to refine programming. Patients who participate will receive a certificate redeemable for rewards contributed by participating partners.
BestPatient.ie is our interface with patients and the site will be going live soon. Please contact us if you would like to see a demonstration today.
We are currently recruiting partners to support the program in one of four ways:
1. Financial support for content development
We envision five or more partners from among corporations that manufacture products or provide services for management of heart disease. Their grants will be pooled to support independent non-biased development of educational programming.
2. Rewards donation for successful patients
Patients who successfully complete the specified course of study will qualify to redeem their Knowledge Certificate for products and services that will help promote their wellbeing. Examples include:
If you have a product or service that would benefit patients with hypertension or heart disease and you would like to donate rewards, please contact us for further details.
3. Analytical process development
We plan to assess patient understanding before and after course participation, follow-up relative to behaviour changes, compliance and utilization of health services over time, and report results on an aggregate basis to our partners and health authorities. If you wish to participate in the research by providing analytical tools or processes, please contact us.
The research results will be made available to partners.
4. Advocacy Groups
Our goal is to work with all stakeholders towards a better outcome for patients. We would very much likt to hear from you and discuss how our programme can work with yours, please contact us.
5. State Agencies, and Institutions
Every patient enrolled in our programme will be less of a burdon to the healthcare system. If gthere are other ways you feel we may be able to wotk together, please contact us.
