DES MOINES, Iowa, June 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BettrLife, a leader in health and wellness technology, announced today that it will integrate its innovative mobile- and web-based activity and nutrition toolset, along with its HealthCoach dashboard with the UP® by Jawbone™ system, an integrated wristband and app that helps users understand how they sleep, eat and move to make better choices for a healthier lifestyle. Now available to all UP users, the BettrLife platform will provide the opportunity to enhance their experience through interactive care and personalized coaching from their healthcare providers.
Within the UP app, the user can view their own activity from UP and incorporate data from BettrLife in their feed, lifeline and trends. Activity and nutrition data captured by the users of the UP app will seamlessly integrate with the BettrLife platform, where that data can then be securely monitored by a healthcare provider through BettrLife's HealthCoach dashboard. The patient-provider platform utilizes this real-time information to better promote, incentivize and support patient decisions – on an individual level – with daily food, nutrition, activity recommendations and encouragement, to help patients stay on target with their health improvement goals. This comprehensive virtual health coaching platform is bi-directional and is designed as a holistic approach to enhance patient engagement and promote long-term healthy lifestyle changes to improve population health.
"The significant versatility of the BettrLife platform allows it to integrate with unique devices and systems, like UP by Jawbone, to promote better health across the nation in a way that is easy to use for patients," said BettrLife CEO, Don Schoen. "With the seamless nature of connecting these products, providers are better able to monitor and engage their patients, and patients feel more connected, motivated and accountable for their own health."
BettrLife is a unique technology solution that enables healthcare providers to engage their patients to take control of their own health and wellness through an integrated suite of food, nutrition and activity tracking tools. This interaction facilitates patient engagement and leads to long-term healthy lifestyle changes within their populations. BettrLife's clinical applications are designed to facilitate both the management of chronic conditions and healthy lifestyle goals.
