MeU Care is a mobile and web communication solution for patient activation and care management that allows for secure, multidirectional communications among providers, patients and caregivers. The goal of MeU Care is to activate behaviors that will keep people healthy and reduce costs of care. The solution is free to consumers and is also in use by leading healthcare companies including hospitals, health plans and provider groups.

PatientPoint Connect—powered by MeU Care—will serve as a central hub for providers to facilitate and monitor interactive communication, deliver relevant education and important facility/practice information and conduct e-visits. Free and premium versions of the platform will be available to healthcare providers.

"At its core, PatientPoint Connect will offer providers a powerful tool for ongoing, meaningful engagement with patients and caregivers between visits—often when they need it most," said PatientPoint Chief Provider Officer and President, Hospital, Chris Martini. "By extending the notion of 'point of care' beyond the brick-and-mortar office, this platform will help providers improve therapy adherence and reduce readmissions, ultimately increasing quality scores and quality-based reimbursement."

MeU Care case studies underscore how mobile engagement can drive positive outcomes for healthcare providers. For example, first-time appointment rates among newly diagnosed diabetes patients increased dramatically from 19 to 62 percent after patients received personalized video messages from their provider on the MeU Care app.
