Do you work as part of a wellness care team, and are looking for a modern way to virtually connect with your patients? Are you considering new software that will allow you to engage with your patients between sessions, by monitoring their outcomes, providing message support, and delivering real-time care?
For nutrition and wellness professionals, engagement with patients drives improved health outcomes. By connecting virtually with patients, wellness providers are able to offer real-time feedback, support, and accountability. Utilizing a telehealth and patient engagement tool not only facilitates the relationship between wellness provider and patient, but it also relays critical information in a patient’s progress towards their health and wellness goals.
Tracking a patient’s metrics, reviewing their food journal entries, and seeing which goals they’ve accomplished all help to build a bigger (and truer) picture of a patient’s progress. Wellness providers who are able to receive this real-time patient data are able to further customize treatment goals and recommendations. Furthermore, having the ability to connect via HIPAA-compliant telehealth is now, more than ever, essential for any wellness care team. In a post-pandemic world, wellness professionals with the right telehealth tools can provide a continuity of care, even at times when patients cannot physically attend their sessions.
Here are some of the features a telehealth and patient engagement tool can provide:
- Individual and group telehealth calls
- Virtual wellness support groups
- Between session message support between patient and wellness provider(s)
- Patient monitoring (connecting to wearable fitness trackers)
- Patient logging, including food journaling and symptom tracking
- Sharing educational materials with patients and offering online educational programs
- Access to a secure patient portal where patients can book online appointments, connect with their wellness provider(s) and revisit all resources shared with them
