mPulse, an industry leading Mobile Experience Management company formed to focus on the specific digital communications needs of the health and wellness marketplace, has announced a strategic partnership with Patient Engagement Systems (PES), a healthcare technology company which focuses on improving the identification and management of patients with chronic diseases.
Patient Engagement and Clinical Decisions Support technologies are proven to improve outcomes and reduce the costs for patients with chronic conditions. PES offers an automated technology for use by patients, providers and payers that is personalized, timely and generates actionable information designed to improve outcomes and reduced costs in patient admissions and ER visits in patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes, chronic kidney disease and others.

The combination of mPulse’s state of the art messaging engine, (which incorporates context, behavior and engagement data to create more relevant communications), with Patient Engagement Systems proven technology for identifying and managing patients with chronic conditions, will dramatically change the way care teams and payers engage with their patients and members.
“mPulse is all about partnering with amazing companies that are tackling some of the biggest problems that plague our health and our healthcare system today,” said Ram Prayaga, VP of Technology at mPulse. “When you can integrate a solution that has data on supporting a patient’s health, and a mobile communication platform like ours, you really have something powerful. So instead of costly call centers, or direct mail campaigns, this partnership allows us to reach the patient securely and in right away. This shift to real-time healthcare, will lead to fewer ER visits, and hospital admissions.”

Goldstein, Patient Engagement Systems President and CEO. “mPulse Mobile’s partnership with Patient Engagement Systems will undoubtedly expedite the advancement of communications capabilities across the healthcare spectrum, bringing these resources even closer to their full potential.”
