Description

Anjna Patient Education is a non–profit organization dedicated to empowering patients to take control of their own health through mobile (SMS and voice) technology. There is a devastating economic and health cost to unmanaged chronic disease among the underserved population. However, SMS use is inversely proportional to income and that SMS usage rates are highest among the underserved. We are repurposing a tool the underserved already have to (1) allow healthcare providers to send patients medication and appointment reminders, (2) allow healthcare providers to visualize and collect data from underserved populations, and (3) reduce the operational cost of the healthcare provider by ameliorating unmanaged chronic disease. Initial feedback from free clinic patients in Los Angeles has been overwhelmingly positive and we have already established partnerships with large organizations such as Unite Here Health. We think this can provide a novel, cost–effective, and scalable model to help the underserved take control of their healthcare.
