KENILWORTH, N.J. – Healthy Interactions and Merck have launched map4health, a digital platform and mobile app designed to help improve the quality of diabetes patient support in between in-person coaching sessions. map4health enables patients to connect with educators through text and video-chat and provides weekly digital activities to sustain engagement. “We believe this tool will further enhance the positive impact that diabetes educators are making in the lives of their patients,” said Paul Lasiuk, co-founder and CEO of Healthy Interactions, a company that provides digital health engagement and education tools, in a statement. The map4health platform was developed as an extension of the companies’ Journey for Control collaboration, a patient-centric education initiative targeting diabetes educators and utilizing the U.S. Diabetes Conversation Map.
