NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. –Johnson & Johnson Health and Wellness Solutions has launched the Johnson & Johnson Health Partner platform for patients preparing for, and recovering from, knee, hip or weight loss surgery.
“Health Partner has been designed with the ‘whole person’ experience in mind to help ensure better engagement between patients and their health care team, and get patients back to living their lives—because we know that will help enhance efficiencies and quality of care,” said Sandra Peterson, group worldwide chair at Johnson & Johnson, in a statement.
That Health Partner is a connected digital platform that can help patients prepare physically, mentally and emotionally for surgery by connecting them with their health care team for customized, real-time care. It learns with the user over time and provides personalized patient care that adapts based on each patient’s changing needs and behaviors.
The Health Partner platform consists of three connected digital tools: a website that provides education and resources before treatment even begins; a mobile app to help guide a patient through surgical preparation and recovery; and a care portal designed for providers and health systems to enable real-time interaction throughout a patient’s treatment journey.
The behavior change strategies integrated into Health Partner are selected based on the best current scientific evidence available to help increase the likelihood patients will follow pre- and post-surgical care, said Peterson.
“Health care is personal, and helping people achieve their best health is deeply rooted in our commitment as a health care company,” she said.
