  • higi Integrates it’s 11,000 FDA-Cleared Health Station Network with On-line Communities to Deliver Real-Time Aggregated User Data To Deliver a Powerful Data Resource for Healthcare Organizations.

    Chicago, IL (February 20, 2017) -- higi, the health technology company that operates the largest network of self-screening stations in the U.S. and Canada, today announced the launch of its Population Screening solution which offers an alternative, cost-effective means to continuously screen broad segments of target populations.  By integrating continuous population screenings at higi health stations, health providers and payers can better understand population health trends.

    The new higi Population Screening solution leverages the company’s extensive network of nearly 11,000 health stations in grocery stores and pharmacies, located within 5 miles of 78% of the US population as well as on-line community user engagement to collect unparalleled data, in near-real time. The higi platform facilitates the integration of screening data into existing analytics, care management or CRM workflows that provide real-time, actionable insights to help facilitate early interventions.  It also enables organizations to offer rewards and incentives to motivate individual users to proactively manage their own health.

    “When a healthcare organization takes on the risk of a population, the lack of up-to-date claims and clinical data on the group can limit accurate risk assessment and outreach prioritization,” said Jeff Bennett, Chief Executive Officer of higi. “higi’s Population Screening solution eliminates missed opportunities for timely interventions and assures accurate determination of risk, positively impacting reimbursement, quality measures, and outcomes.”

    Traditional on-site biometric screening solutions are expensive, inconvenient, only happen once a year and fail to capture large segments of the population resulting in significant data gaps.  Healthcare organizations, including providers, payers, employers and researchers can adopt and deploy the higi Population Screening solution in the following way: After selecting a target population, individuals receive a call to action with an incentive to complete a health risk assessment and visit a higi station for a free and convenient screening. Along with station screening data, healthcare organizations can receive additional information from more than 80 wearable devices connected to a user's higi account. Based on near real-time data, higi’s Population Screening solution provides powerful insights that help healthcare organizations triage individuals and segment populations into risk categories. With the addition of this rich new data set from higi to existing records and other analytics tools, healthcare organizations can predict population and individual risk to help them determine opportunities for intervention.

    As a user’s engagement with higi continues, on-going biometrics readings measured at the station are integrated into the care management process or analytics, keeping healthcare organizations informed and individuals involved in their care. higi’s end-to-end Population Screening solution leverages higi’s unrivaled network as a seamless data collection ecosystem and health engagement platform, providing a new ongoing source of population health data.

    The higi Population Screening tool will be put into widespread use by healthcare organizations during 2017.  At HIMSS, higi will be demonstrating one application of Population Screening developed to extend the capabilities of Salesforce Health Cloud (link to blog post).   The demonstration of this application will be available at the Salesforce Booth #2675 and higi Booth #6966 at HIMSS.

  • Chicago, IL (February 21, 2017) – higi, the healthcare technology company that operates the largest network of connected self-screening stations in the U.S. and Canada, today announced the launch of its online communities platform. This enhancement to higi’s digital platform allows organizations to build their own, customized communities where their invited members can enjoy share-worthy content, participate in challenges, earn rewards, and connect with those they trust.

    The addition of communities to higi’s existing health engagement platform introduces new tools for both consumers and client partners who want to connect and engage with people trying to take a more active role in their health. It also provides a health-centric space for organizations and brands to develop ongoing relationships with target populations and facilitate behavior change through challenges, incentives, and rewards.

    • We have long known that people achieve better results when they are supported by one another in a group,” said Jeff Bennett, higi CEO. “higi communities is an exciting new platform that will change the way people rely on and support others while pursuing their personal wellness goals.” He added, “It also provides an enormous competitive advantage to brands, retailers, health care providers and influencers looking to connect and engage with their target audiences in a meaningful way.”

    Users can join communities created by organizations—such as healthcare organizations, brands, influencers, retailers, and municipalities—that are most valuable to them. The online experience is designed to facilitate easy exploration of content and participation in rich discussion, while game mechanics like badges, leaderboards, and activity-based challenges support sustained user engagement. Consumers can access higi communities via the higi app and website.

This highly valuable data helps community owners refine their communication and outreach strategies within and beyond their community.

    Ultimately, the addition of communities to higi’s digital platform will help individuals become more physically active, encourage more frequent biometric screenings, improve health literacy, connect individuals with healthcare professionals, and encourage healthier habits—all steps that can lead to an improved health status.
