health initiatives

Health plans (payers) and pharmacy benefits managers (PBMs) can integrate Propeller digital health solutions into their existing care management or population health initiatives.

 

Solutions can be adapted for fee-for-service or value-based care models. In either model, patients are supported with engagement tools (Propeller inhaler sensor and mobile app/web portal) and support from Propeller’s virtual care team; clinicians are empowered with objective patient medication use data via Propeller’s web-based clinician portal to inform patient care and make data-driven treatment decisions.

The Promise of Digital Health: Then, Now, and the Future

From the increased development of personalized therapeutics to the growing adoption of telemedicine, digital innovation has been applied to nearly every aspect of patient care and human health.

In a special publication with the National Academy of Medicine, Propeller Health and ResMed’s VP of Population Health Research, Meredith Barrett – alongside several luminaries in healthcare such as leaders from UCSF, Blue Shield of California, The Scripps Research Institute, and more – provides a comprehensive review of digital health solutions and identifies critical implementation opportunities including: 

Why payer digital transformation matters now more than ever

In an evolving healthcare landscape, payers have the unique opportunity to reimagine how they deliver care services and keep their members engaged, especially those with chronic conditions such as asthma and COPD.

During the pandemic, when providers, payers and health plan members required alternative solutions to traditional in-person care, options for virtual care and digital health technologies became more widely accepted – and grew exponentially. Now, many industry experts anticipate this shift will last, particularly as healthcare consumer expectations continue to grow.1

Health equity through value-based care: wishful thinking or digital health future?

In our latest blog post hosted by HLTH, Propeller Health’s General Manager, Susa Monacelli, dives deep into what it really means to leverage digital health for value-based care and how those approaches can be applied toward achieving health equity.

Digital therapeutics for chronic conditions such as asthma and COPD have been proven to deliver clinical and financial outcomes. Platforms that combine medical devices, consumer apps, clinical data for provider monitoring, and patient engagement and coaching are effective in promoting better health outcomes. These outcomes, including improvements in medication adherence, ER visits and hospitalization, have been demonstrated in a variety of patient populations from pediatric to geriatric to those historically underserved

However, realizing these outcomes at scale, while ensuring health equity in access, affordability and health improvements requires a different approach. This entails precise, patient-centric interventions that must be personalized based on social and cultural determinants, demographics, learning and decision styles, disease stage and motivations. By shifting the focus toward using digital health to enable data-driven behavior change, providers and payers will not only be able to sustainably deliver on value-based care for patients, but also apply their learnings more broadly to promote health equity.
