GetWellNetwork®, Inc., the leader in Interactive Patient Care™ (IPC) solutions has signed a strategic partnership with Pro-Change Behavior Systems, Inc. The partnership is an extension of GetWell Labs™, a research and development initiative that serves as an incubator for disruptive patient and family engagement technologies.
GetWellNetwork will incorporate Pro-Change’s Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change programs — based on more than 35 years of scientific research, intervention development, and empirical studies — into its Interactive Patient Care Pathways™. Delivered on the iPad, mobile device, or bedside TV, IPC Pathways are workflows that engage patients at the right point of care to learn about their condition and take action to manage their health. With Pro-Change’s proven methods, IPC Pathways can now be customized to target and deliver patient-specific care plan interventions.
“Pro-Change is thrilled to partner with GetWellNetwork,” said Kerry E. Evers, Ph.D., Senior Vice President of Research and Product Development for Pro-Change. “The combination of our scientifically validated behavior change programs and GetWellNetwork’s IPC technology will create a powerful solution. Together, we can engage and empower patients and families in the behavior change process, improve outcomes, and transform the patient experience.”
“When we founded GetWell Labs, we promised to bring the future faster to engage patients and families in new ways,” said GetWellNetwork Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer David Bennett. This partnership will enable our client community to build on the outcomes they are already achieving by delivering more effective care and empowering every patient.”
