Digital Therapeutics company Medisafe has announced a new initiative with Everyday Health to launch new condition-specific resource centers through the Medisafe platform. The new digital resource centers will span multiple therapeutic areas, including heart health, cholesterol, migraines, mental health, and several oncology specialties. The launch of the new digital resource centers follows the success Medisafe achieved with the COVID-19 digital resource it launched in June.
Medisafe’s Previous Success with COVID-19 Resource Center
The uptake of telehealth services during the COVID-19 pandemic has spotlighted the power of digital technologies in healthcare. Medisafe’s new digital resource centers build upon their success with the COVID-19 digital resource it launched in June 2020. According to the announcement, the COVID-19 Resource Center continues to see active engagement from the over 8,500 users who enlisted in the program, receiving counseling on COVID misconceptions, new updates, safety guidelines, and help for patients concerned about the virus. On average, the COVID-19 Resource Center sees 14 visits per user, five visits per month, and nearly two visits per day, per user.
Medisafe users continue to rely on our platform for regular updates since we first deployed Everyday Health’s sponsored COVID-19 Resource Center, demonstrating an increased need for centralized resource centers that support many common conditions. With more patients using digital health tools to manage their health conditions, we’re excited to expand our platform to present patients with a trusted resource in their pocket and make a living with an illness one less worry in the day.Omri Shor, Medisafe Chief Executive Officer

Digital Health Tools to Manage Chronic Conditions
Digital health technologies have rapidly penetrated many aspects of consumers’ interactions with health care organizations, including how they make health care decisions and interact with their health plan. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, consumer interest in using digital solutions to engage with their healthcare team was rising. And while the COVID-19 accelerated the adoption of health technology, consumers will continue to adopt digital health technologies far past the pandemic. These technologies provide the continuity of care needed to manage chronic conditions by reaching people who might otherwise feel hesitant to seek care. The novel ways health care organizations deliver interventions using digital technology results in new forms of engagement.
When it comes to the future of healthcare, meeting and exceeding consumer preferences around digital experiences is no longer optional for healthcare providers. Digital health tools are crucial for delivering better remote care and improving outcomes. The pace of digital health transformation will likely continue to accelerate on a massive scale for the foreseeable future. COVID-19 has forced us to question what’s possible in healthcare delivery and to challenge our thinking.
