GoMo Health Teams Up with the American Heart Association to Beat Cardiovascular DiseaseAug 1, 2018
GoMo Health is excited to announce that we are joining the American Heart Association Center for Health Technology and Innovation’s (CHIT) Innovators Network. GoMo Health will be integrating the Association’s digital care plans and educational content into Concierge Care®. The result: personalized, actionable and interactive resources for patients that are delivered at the preferred time, frequency, and tone that best matches their lifestyle.
Cardiovascular disease, listed as the underlying cause of death, accounts for about 1 of every 3 deaths in the US. About 2,300 Americans die of cardiovascular disease each day, an average of 1 death every 38 seconds. Furthermore, about 92.1 million American adults are living with some form of cardiovascular disease or the after-effects of stroke. The devastating effects of cardiovascular disease are the driving factor behind the innovations that GoMo Health is creating in cardiac condition management in 2018.
As a telehealth care coordination solution, Concierge Care is deployed in partnership with hospitals, health plans, skilled nursing, life sciences and pharmaceutical companies nationwide, touching millions of lives daily and supporting patients across the continuum of care as they manage complex chronic conditions like cardiovascular disease. Now, Concierge Care will be deployed with the expertise of the digital care plans and educational content that is developed by the American Heart Association. Concierge Care supports CMS value-based outcome and cost measures of reducing readmissions and unnecessary ED visits.
“The American Heart Association is passionately driven to reduce deaths, improve outcomes, and increase prevention of cardiovascular disease. We value innovators like GoMo Health who embrace those objectives and are focused on behavior based, patient-centric care leading to measurable and sustainable population health,” says Patrick Dunn, Ph.D., manager of Connected Health at the American Heart Association.
