WellFX is a cloud-based healthcare tool that extends care and patient engagement outside provider visits, with an aim of improving healthcare outcomes and costs. In addition, the system is HIPAA compliant and acts as a social platform for providers to deploy in their patient, staff, and agency communities.
Using the tool, providers can create managed and unmanaged online communities for patients to meet and share experiences while accessing provider-created education and healthcare content. WellFx says it overcomes the shortcomings of consumer and employee social platforms by guaranteeing patient confidentiality, anonymity, and data protection.
