LifeWalletsm (LifeWallet.com), a Miami-based healthcare technology leader that gained national attention for its groundbreaking consumer engagement diabetes prevention programs, has joined Premier’s Healthcare Innovators Collaborative.
Premier is a healthcare improvement company that unites an alliance of approximately 4,000 U.S. hospitals and healthcare systems as well as approximately 165,000 other providers and organizations to transform healthcare.
The announcement was made by Norberto Menendez, LifeWallet CEO and founder.
“Participating in Premier’s Innovators Collaborative is a major step for LifeWallet,” Menendez said. “Being asked to join Premier’s Collaborative model validates the work we are doing to engage consumers, enhance outcomes, focus on prevention, and transform the delivery of healthcare. As a member of this collaborative we will leverage our unique expertise and technology platform for consumer engagement, as well as work with other collaborative members to improve outcomes and the health of U.S. communities together.”
According to Robert DeVol, director of Premier’s Healthcare Innovation Collaborative, LifeWallet’s novel consumer engagement technology was an important factor in the Collaborative recruitment process.
“As a key player in understanding how healthcare technology can support major challenges in population health management, such as consumer engagement, LifeWallet will be a valuable new addition to Premier’s Healthcare Innovators Collaborative,” DeVol said.
LifeWallet has convincing, real-world evidence that supports its ground-breaking technology/engagement platform. Additionally, LifeWallet recently completed a six-month technology–based diabetes prevention program with tremendous consumer engagement and stunning results.
Program participants recorded and monitored their progress on diet, exercise and glucose monitoring by connecting digital wearables, such as the Apple Watch and Bluetooth-connected devices — including glucometers and scales — to LifeWallet’s popular HealthBook app.
The Healthcare Innovators Collaborative enables manufacturers, health systems and other industry experts to share knowledge, stay up-to-date on industry trends and share better practices to collaborate and improve population health management. The collaborative is open to all suppliers, whether or not they have a group purchasing contract with Premier. Enrollment is considered independent from any other relationship suppliers may have, or may be pursuing, with Premier or its affiliates.
