New Content Elevates Vivify Health’s Robust User Experience
DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE) – (February 11, 2015) – Vivify Health (Vivify), already a premier provider of Remote Care Management solutions, is rapidly expanding educational content to increase health literacy and improve medication compliance. Vivify combines the video content from both VUCA Health and Blausen Medical libraries into a dynamic patient experience.
Vivify Health’s Remote Care Management Platform, building on the foundation of consumer electronics, wireless personal health devices and customized care plans, now utilizes both VUCA Health medication videos and Blausen’s Human Atlas health literacy videos, exclusive to Vivify in the remote care market. “Vivify enables caregivers to assign educational videos as part of a customized care plan for individuals with any clinical condition using our Remote Care Management solution,” said Robin Hill, VP of Clinical Solutions of Vivify Health. “Teach-back questions can then be presented to ensure comprehension.”
Medication compliance is difficult for many people, and FDA guidance suggests that the average printed leaflet for a medication contains only 50% of the information needed to take a medication properly. Few people ever read these instructions, so the solution is to digitize this information into accessible, comprehensive, and easy to understand videos. VUCA Health has produced the most extensive library of medication videos in the world to help improve patient health literacy and increase medication adherence. “VUCA Health is pleased to bring our videos into patients’ hands through Vivify Health; we believe this bridges a gap in care that has existed for decades,” states David Medvedeff, CEO of VUCA Health.
Home Care recipients want to learn more about their conditions, upcoming procedures, and their anatomy affected by chronic diseases, surgical procedures, and other medical conditions. Blausen Medical developed the most comprehensive 3D animated video library, available in seventeen languages, to bring medical illustrations to life. Bruce Blausen, CEO and President of Blausen Medical, declared, “Patients of any age and technical ability can learn more easily from our animated video format, and have higher satisfaction and lower stress after they view our short, yet thorough, videos related to their health.” Vivify Health is the exclusive delivery provider for this unequaled content in a Remote Care Management platform.
Vivify Health will continue to develop and enhance their Remote Care Management platform with additional features and functionality as technology and communications advance, making the “last mile” of population health a shorter and shorter distance.

The Vivify solution is incredibly simple for patients of any age and ability, and is the simplest for caregivers to manage the complex workflow of remote care. The platform flexibility is uniquely designed to manage care plans and patient engagement for nearly any clinical condition, with customization at the patient level.
