The client and practitioner applications operate within a sophisticated unifying software platform, secured, encrypted, and meeting all HIPAA and data privacy requirements. The software facilitates, guides, and documents all facets of the health and wellbeing model. It allows for the specifications and delivery of screens, assessments, reports, dashboards, and learning aids. The consumer and practitioner interact within the same platform.
Self-Guided with Practitioner Monitoring: For this option practitioners can recommend or prescribe that a patient independently uses Portages. The patient accesses the program through web, tablet, or mobile applications. The patient can then use all of the content, methods and procedures of the Portages health practice change model. The applications are designed and constructed to meet the highest standards of quality, dissemination methods, design, and functionality so that use of the technology is engaging, acceptable, and feasible. The patient uses the technology in a self-guided manner to receive guidance and scaffolding on health practices change within it. A patient can also link with one or more practitioners within the platform enabling them to receive updates and progress reports. Practitioners receive data from a patient’s panel and notifications and alerts on a patient’s status.
Collaboratively Guided with Practitioner Coaching: For this option a practitioner is linked virtually with the patient to work collaboratively through the patient’s health practice change journey. Similar to self-guided, practitioners receive data from a patient’s panel and notifications and alerts on a patient’s status. In addition, practitioners have the ability to dynamically update and modify a patient’s change plan and push updates instantaneously. The practitioner can push personalized instructions, reminders, and inspirations to the patient. They can also use Portages content and methods to augment in-person interactive encounters with the patient during routine care visits. In this way practitioners can provide additional scaffolding and support to a patient using Portages virtually and through face-to-face encounters.
