The healthcare landscape is rapidly changing, requiring healthcare providers to effectively manage their patient populations. People are living longer, and health care costs are soaring. Connected health programs hold the promise to improve care coordination beyond the traditional clinical setting, with the expected results of lower costs, improvements in care and increased patient satisfaction.

Family Health Network’s Connected for Life℠ is a platform that allows healthcare systems, transforming from fee for services to outcomes based practices, to be connected with and manage the health of populations in those gaps of care between clinical visits. It also allows seniors to age in place (e.g. in their own homes) and to be connected to family and health care professionals involved in their care.

Connected for Life℠ platform addresses the primary burden of burgeoning health costs, i.e., a rapidly growing aging population with multiple chronic and expensive disease states. Connected for Life℠  allows patients living at home or connected by new technologies such as tablets and smart phones, to record and share information with their families and health care providers, positioning Family Health Network to play a significant role in defining a new approach to the patient side of health care.

Connected for Life℠  connect patients and their families with appropriate components of our health care system, significantly improving the quality of care achieved while also reducing overall costs. For the first time, health care providers can remain connected to patients and those around them. As health care evolves, new approaches that provide continual information and allow for timely notifications and alerts are essential. Connected for Life℠  represents a bridge between health care today and health care of the future.
