The platform also enables doctors to deliver treatment-specific tasks, reminders and educational content directly to patients’ or their caregivers’ smartphones. It synthesizes multiple care plans from multiple providers into a unified set of daily tasks for the patient. Health professionals can review submitted health information in real-time as patients complete their care plan.

Patient IO’s web dashboard lets health professionals track patients from their desktop. User-configurable alerts are sent if patients stray too far from their care plan, helping providers focus on their highest risk patients. And unlike other care plan solutions, Patient IO offers a full set of API’s to make integration with existing care management software seamless.
