Conversa leads market powering a continuous, collaborative, and efficient provider-patient relationship
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — September 18, 2018 — Based on its recent analysis of the North American patient engagement solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Conversa Health (Conversa) with the 2018 North American Technology Leadership Award for filling the gaps in traditional care through its automated, artificial intelligence (AI)-based Conversa Conversation PlatformTM. This consumer-centric platform optimizes patient engagement, care team satisfaction, and clinical and financial outcomes through targeted patient outreach and coordinated care management.
“Conversa is delivering better patient access and virtual care with its profile-driven, automated health conversations. Their cloud-based technology enhances care management and clinical understanding through deep integration with more than 400 biometric devices as well as patients’ electronic health records (EHRs),” said Koustav Chatterjee, Industry Analyst, Frost and Sullivan. “Its secure and reliable conversational AI technology easily syncs with a patient portal, EHR, or client app and captures actionable data through chats that are sophisticated, empathetic, and easy to analyze.”
Clients use Conversa in a range of applications including chronic condition management, pre- and post-surgery, medication adherence, patient acquisition/retention and lifestyle health coaching. This allows caregivers to offer educational content and insights to foster an understanding of disease processes and reduce patient anxiety. Additionally, Conversa uniquely employs a proven motivational psychology methodology, wherein self-determination and superior patient-generated health data (PGHD) integration supports personalized conversational experiences and spurs patient engagement.
Conversa’s structured approach further ensures high data integrity and minimizes escalations. In fact, it has a library of more than 500 conversation programs addressing conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and hypertension; this branching logic and structured data helps it present an easy-to-use client interface. In addition, the solution delivers a gamification feature to interact with patients, and providers can even adjust the literacy level and language according to their patient’s needs.
“Conversa’s primary customers include healthcare systems, pharmaceuticals, payers, and technology companies. Conversa’s significant performance has demonstrated value for its clients and has attracted significant support from a syndicate of top healthcare investors such as Northwell Health, Triple Tree, Allscripts, and Epic Ventures,” noted Koustav. “Overall, Conversa’s proven outcomes, ease-of-use, and visionary innovation have resulted in best-in-class patient engagement, remote in-home monitoring, and significant clinical and financial outcomes for its clients, catapulting the company into the market leadership position.”
