higi will soon announce Population Screening, empowering healthcare organizations to build stronger patient relationships and cost-effective means to collect longitudinal ambient and biometric screening data for large populations higi is excited to announce at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS17) Conference in Orlando its Population Screening app that will extend the capabilities of Salesforce Health Cloud. Salesforce Health Cloud gives healthcare providers the ability to make smarter care decisions, engage with patients across their caregiver networks and manage patient data in new and powerful ways. Population Screening will enable healthcare organizations to:
  • Better understand the individualized health status of each member of a large population to improve stratification and risk prediction.
  • Provide a low-cost means to meet patients and members “where they are” to improve adherence and receive screenings data throughout the year based on individual requirements.
  • Integrate actionable screening and patient reported data into analytics and care coordination workflows to close the loop.
Population Screening Key Features
  • The higi Population Screening application provides health plans and providers cost-effective biometric screening of large populations.
  • Leveraging Salesforce tools to engage individuals to complete a risk assessment and conveniently perform a screening at one of 11,000 higi stations in food, drug and mass market retailers, higi integrates the data into Salesforce Health Cloud.
  • This integration with Health Cloud enables higi biometric / assessment data to be consumed in real time by analytics and workflow partners. For example, an analytics solution such as Interpreta can combine higi biometric and assessment data with their existing claims and clinical data sets into actionable insight and dynamic clinical care plans. Net results are better stratification, management, quality, safety and cost outcomes.
“With the pending launch of the higi Population Screening App in Salesforce Health Cloud, higi will provide health care organizations a cost-effective, scalable, screening solution. The ambient health and lifestyle higi collects from outside of the hospital or clinical setting can then be leveraged by analytics and workflow solutions,” said Jeff Bennett, CEO of higi. “Salesforce Health Cloud enables providers to get a more precise view of patient demographic, lifestyle and health information to better serve their needs through a system of engagement, building stronger patient relationships,” said Dr. Joshua Newman, Chief Medical Officer at Salesforce. “higi is a valuable part of our journey towards creating a modern healthcare platform for patients, doctors, and everyone else involved in care.”

You may have noticed a change in your higi Score. If so, worry not! We recently updated the higi Score as of December 10, 2105. Since we first introduced the higi Score, we have continually added new ways for you to engage with higi. We made the change in the higi Score to take advantage of these additions, and more accurately reflect a user’s recent engagement with higi. The higi Score reflects engagement around two factors: regular check-ins at a higi health station and daily activity, as measured by an activity tracker synced to your higi app.Check-ins on a connected scale or at the gym via FourSquare also count. In other words, the more regular check-ins and the more regular activity, the higher the higi Score. In the near future, we will be sharing additional improvements in the higi experience, ones designed to help you take continued small steps to create lasting healthy habits. In the meantime, we hope these changes help you better understand the higi Score and as well as how to improve it. Questions, comments, ideas?
