Once patients leave their doctor’s office, they’re on their own for the hard work of getting better. This results in 50% of patients failing to follow their treatment plans. The problem is compounded in low-income, high-risk populations by lower health-IQs and less access to technology.
Nudge interacts with patients via text message, a familiar accessible medium. Care providers schedule and send these messages from Nudge’s web interface. Just as a doctor sets a treatment plan for patients, they can now also set a plan of reminders and check-ins connecting patients to their care between appointments.
