To engage and keep patients motivated "Buddy", our lovable puppy avatar; uses elements of gamification which appeal to our inherent sense of altruism.
Buddy’s interactive nature helps keep patients motivated to stay on track during the recovery process. Buddy helps by reminding patients when to take their scheduled medications, encouraging full day and weekly medication adherence, reinforcing discharge instructions and reinforcing the need to follow the treatment plan. Buddy also helps along the way by continuously encouraging the recording of accurate and useful clinical information in the Patient Buddy app… and much more! The idea of winning rewards for Buddy and not oneself helps to motivate patients to keep progressing forward with their treatment plan and ultimately their recovery.
Patient Buddy addresses the root causes of hospital readmissions by combining powerful communications, patient medication adherence monitoring, and data analytics to keep case managers and care coordinators connected to their patients.
