HMC Companies Launches My Wellness AlertsĀ®

Plan participants receive health program that provides personalized intervention communication.

Jupiter, FL, April 21, 2011 --( HMC announced today the launch of its My Wellness Alerts Program. My Wellness Alerts develops a unique, personal program utilizing health records of plan participants. Compilation of medical and pharmacy claims, plan enrollment information, and biometrics and lab values identify participants' health status as being high, moderate or low risk. Based on these risk categories, HMC reaches out to members, engaging them with targeted and personalized interventions, with the intent to improve and maintain wellness.

One component of member engagement is the My Wellness Alerts® Application provided through the Benefitfocus® Platform. The My Wellness Alerts App proactively sends "My Wellness Alerts" to plan members when preventive services are recommended or a "gap-in-care" is identified through analysis of individual members' healthcare data. This innovative solution uses health and benefits management technologies to help organizations reach wellness goals, increase member engagement, improve patient outcomes and decrease overall health costs. This industry leading technology app was developed by SCIOinspire and made available through the Benefitfocus Platform. According to Janis DiMonaco, President of HMC Companies, "The My Wellness Alerts Application is helping our organization make the most out of our care management and wellness strategies, and create an ongoing culture of health. It is a cost-effective way to provide members with the decision support tools and information they need, exactly when they need it."

HMC customers use the My Wellness Alerts App, along with targeted information, which are delivered to plan members confidentially through the Benefitfocus Benefits InTouch portal. Upon logging in to the secure portal, members see "My Wellness Alerts" displayed prominently on the home page. By clicking on the alert logo, they are taken to a personalized and confidential portal. "My Wellness Alerts" are based on unique health data and focus only on the relevant issues pertaining to that individual. Employees are able to choose how they would prefer to receive alerts, including through a SMS text message, e-mail, telephone or mail.

"Successful engagement requires accurate and timely identification of members," said Dave Hom, President of Member Engagement and Care Management Services for SCIOinspire. "The delivery of wellness alerts through the Benefits InTouch portal will allow employers across the country to enhance member engagement and take their wellness programs to the next level."
