DANVERS, Mass. – HealthView Services, a provider of health care cost data to financial service firms, and the Mercy health system have launched HealthyCapital, a platform that provides data and applications that calculate expected health care costs for individuals based on health condition, age, gender and where they live. The joint venture’s physician- and actuary-reviewed approach draws upon clinicians, 70 million medical cases, and government and economic data, along with HealthView Services’ decade of experience in health care cost projections and Mercy’s extensive experience in population health management. “Until now we haven’t had access to actuarial data that shows individual patients the financial benefits of health condition management and lifestyle changes,” said Dr. Raymond Weick, chief medical officer of HealthyCapital, in a statement. “HealthyCapital addresses this need.” Emphasizing the benefits of clear financial incentives and condition management support, HealthyCapital will provide support services to help individuals follow treatment protocols and adopt healthier behaviors. The company’s platform offers users the option to sign up for health coaching through a text messaging service, which sends tailored messages based on individual health care goals.
