LifeNexus Delivers Evive Health's Personalized Care Reminders to Consumers and Their Doctors at the Point of Care

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - November 18, 2014) - LifeNexus, creator of iChip® and Evive Health, a healthcare engagement company, today announced a combined solution that delivers Evive Health's highly-personalized care reminders via iChip, a point of care consumer engagement platform, to members and their doctors when the member shows up for care.

"The ability for health plans to collaborate with members and providers is essential to closing gaps in care and driving down the steeply rising trend of healthcare costs," said David R. Strand, CEO of LifeNexus. "More than 1 billion doctor visits occur annually creating an ideal opportunity for health plans to connect with members and their doctors. Together, Evive Health and LifeNexus are helping health plans leverage the point of care as an essential channel of communication with their members."

As a healthcare engagement company, Evive Health creates highly-personalized, just-in-time communications for health plan members by using healthcare analytics and consumer segmentation. iChip® provides health plans with a secure, consumer-controlled personal health exchange at the point of care that effectively opens a communication channel between their plan, members, and providers. Together with Evive Health, iChip helps health plans deliver member-specific care reminders in a way and at a time that is most impactful.

Both solutions, grounded in the behavioral sciences and patient engagement principles, address all levels of engagement within a health plan's member population by providing a variety of traditional and technology-based tools such as mailers, email, text messaging and web-based portals as well as the iChip smartphone app and iChip-enabled health insurance card. Each component is designed to engage consumers where they are in their healthcare journey, and deliver to them the information they need how and when they need it most.

"It's very exciting that no matter where a member goes to seek care, prioritized and personalized healthcare decision support is available to them," said Peter Saravis, CEO of Evive Health. "iChip delivers Evive Health's highly-personalized care reminders to both individuals and their doctors in a way and a time that enhances the dialogue between doctor and patient and informs diagnosis and treatment."

Evive Health will be joining LifeNexus as it demonstrates iChip as a point of care engagement platform at the upcoming AHIP (America's Health Insurance Plans) Consumer Experience Forum November 19-20th in Phoenix, Arizona.
