In addition to telehealth products and services geared to chronically ill patients and those with other medical issues, some offerings suit people looking for tools to stay fit. In other situations, patients may have recovered from a medical problem and are trying to stay on track.

Sensei Wellness Plus is a telehealth product that targets the key risk factors and lifestyle management related to cardiovascular disease. Sensei Wellness Plus' aim is to transform a mobile phone into a virtual coach, providing personalized, timely, and specific guidance as a seamless part of an individual's activities.

The product was named winner of the Novartis Health 2.0 Cardio Engagement Innovation Challenge at HIMSS12. The challenge was to create a game-changing way for patients to better manage their cardiovascular health through an interactive tool that would motivate and empower people.

Sensei Wellness Plus provides a brief assessment of an individual's cardiovascular risk and then creates a personalized program providing encouragement, education, and guidance on nutrition, weight management, fitness, and condition-specific self-management for those with hypertension, high cholesterol, and diabetes.

For clinicians, the product also supports population health management, connecting healthcare consumers with healthcare providers.
