Healthrageous offers a digital health management platform to organizations interested in supporting an individual's journey toward a healthy lifestyle. For individuals, it offers a tool that's part of a health and wellness offering from their employer, health plan, healthcare provider or health and wellness retailer. The system is consumer-focused, said Healthcare IT Guy blogger Shahid Shah, but helps drive self-management and engagement by promoting behavior changes. "The consumer-driven value is easy to think of from an obvious perspective, but there aren't experiments that prove wellness is improved when this type of self-management happens," he said. "Over time, we'll figure out whether or not this is useful on just the consumer side, or if the consumer can push this to the doctor. It's unclear, but it's a decent self-management platform."
