Health Support Systems Now Offers Complimentary Health Campaign Materials
San Francisco, Dec 1, 2008.
Health Support Systems, Inc. (www.healthsupportsystems.com) today announced the availability of free Health Campaign Materials for enterprises. Originally developed for its clients, HSS has made available portions of the materials free for any individual or business to use. The Health Campaign includes online and print materials that coach and educate individuals and can be distributed by employers and organizations such as community hospitals or small health plans to spread health awareness among employees or members.
“The intent is to empower and coach the individuals in preventive health, self monitoring and management”, says Lee Hagelshaw, a co-founder and CFO for HSS. “We truly believe that the service will benefit a lot of individuals and small enterprises. The materials can be used freely by any person or organization for internal purposes and distribution. ”
“The Health Campaign includes materials on smoking cessation, diet, and nutrition, articles on living with diabetes and hypertension and a health dashboard to tie it all together, ” says Bala Selvarajan, a co-founder of HSS. “These materials can be the first step to educate individuals about their health and preventive care.”
This service will be in addition to the free disease management online portal launched by HSS in Nov 2007. HSS products can also be purchased by enterprises and customized for their members, personnel and dependents. The subscription service offers additional features not available in the free version and includes patient monitoring and counseling. By subscribing to a disease management or wellness program, companies can benefit from fewer employee sick days, higher productivity, and lower employee-related health costs.
Earlier this year, HSS announced the signing of two channel partners for distributing its products and services. The channel partners will integrate HSS’s Health Monitor system with their suite of medical devices and will offer a turnkey solution to their clients, including data collection, monitoring, reporting and consulting.
