We have great things to say.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (August 27, 2012) StayWell Health Management announced today that it has chosen Net.Orange to provide a technology platform, health-care data model and support services that will deliver a more personalized experience for people who participate in population health management programs that StayWell provides to employers across the country.
According to StayWell’s Cherie Buraglio, director of product management, the company’s relationship with Net.Orange will allow StayWell to improve engagement across the health spectrum from healthy, at-risk, pre-disease and early diagnosis, to those with chronic conditions in ways that are personalized and that change as people progress along their path toward wellness.
“Lasting behavior change doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a process that requires ongoing attention and nurturing. StayWell’s technology enhancements through Net.Orange will enable us to connect with participants in more meaningful ways than ever before,” said Andy Corbin, president, StayWell Health Management. “The Net.Orange technology approach fits nicely with StayWell’s goals to improve integration and to provide more extensive program offerings that are scalable to a wider population of participants.”
The new delivery model will leverage StayWell’s proprietary knowledge and research in population health management and optimize the interventions used to target individual employees based on their personal health risks and conditions. This, in turn, encourages greater participation and improved outcomes.
“We’re proud that StayWell has selected Net.Orange as its technology partner, and we look forward to supporting their goal of improved health for all employee participants and greater workforce productivity,” said Dr. Vasu Rangadass, CEO of Net.Orange. “Reducing the burden of morbidity and cost in this country depends on the ability to augment the traditional care provided by clinicians with the behavior change that StayWell provides. We believe this partnership has the potential to deliver a technology blueprint for cost reduction through behavior change.”
