Concierge Care is a telehealth care coordination solution that is deployed in partnership with hospitals, health plans, skilled nursing, life sciences and pharmaceutical companies nationwide, touching millions of lives daily and supporting patients across the continuum of care in the management of complex chronic conditions, supporting CMS value-based outcome and cost measures of reducing readmissions and unnecessary ED visits.

"The American Heart Association is passionately driven to reduce deaths, improve outcomes, and increase prevention of cardiovascular disease. We value innovators like GoMo Health who embrace those objectives and are focused on behavior based, patient-centric care leading to measurable and sustainable population health," says Patrick Dunn, Ph.D., manager of Connected Health at the American Heart Association.

In addition to the remote telehealth usage, the Concierge Care® program is designed to be utilized in-hospital to reinforce treatment protocols, and to simplify and increase compliance with discharge instructions and planning to ensure optimal patient-activated self-care. A modular solution comprised of outcomes-focused programs, Concierge Care takes an integrated treatment approach, addressing the overall health and lifestyle needs of the complete person, not just their diseases.

"Concierge Care has demonstrated that to improve outcomes measures and overall population health, you need to focus on the person, not the disease," says Bob Gold, Behavioral Technologist and Founder at GoMo Health.  "While every human being is unique biologically, their individual behaviors, cognition, emotions, and outlook are equally unique and combine to impact their ability to take an active role in their healthcare management.  Combining our proprietary BehavioralRx™ behavioral and cognitive science of precision health with the AHA Inside content enables us to personalize actionable and interactive resources for each individual with the preferred time, frequency, and tone that best matches their preferences and lifestyle."
