Conversa is being adopted by leading health systems including Northwell, Ochsner Health System, Citrus Valley Health Partners, and Centura Health’s Penrose St. Francis to enhance how care teams communicate with patient populations by delivering smart, automated and patient profile-driven conversation experiences. Sourcing from more than 400 biometric devices combined with clinical, claims and patient-generated data, providers receive data in real-time allowing for more informed allocation of resources and ongoing adjustments to care and treatment plans as needed. Actionable data is populated into a patient’s existing electronic health record and/or care management system, allowing care teams to quickly address immediate care needs and monitor individuals’ health over time.
