The Better Day Health app is a Web-based, patient-centered health and practice management software platform that is designed to drive improvements in patient care quality, coordination, and collaboration. The platform was developed by VoiceHIT, and it combines predictive modeling and third-party applications and devices to turn patient data into actionable information.

It is primarily used by healthcare providers and support staff in ambulatory settings, and it helps practitioners develop relationships with their patients. By leveraging voice recognition from Nuance Healthcare at the point of care, each patient note is available immediately. Patients also have the ability to chime in as they're made aware of what is put into their record-- they become part of the clinical documentation process by hearing first-hand what is documented and are then given the opportunity to ask questions and provide additional insight. Pictured above is a sample screenshot of the platform.

re: 7 E-Health Tools To Get Patients Engaged
While these tools look like they have quite a bit to offer, too often IT is bombarded with requests to integrate into an EHR and there aren't very many solutions. To me, to be a viable option within e-health, you must have an easy, solid integration with the top EHR vendors.
