3Pound Health releases patient-engagement platform
Euco InsightTM securely connects to a corresponding mobile application for patients, the Euco Personal Health Manager. The manager offers a picture of health progress and engagement for nutrition, activity, medications, measurements and labs; clinician-driven guidance and personalized plans for each category; and a secure connection designed to share information and enable intervention between scheduled appointments
Euco's initial focus is on growing and extending program reach to preserve outcomes in the medical weight loss and bariatric populations, it said, but plans to expand to other populations.
“Typical weight-loss apps leave it all up to the individual to track calorie intake and exercise habits,” said bariatric physician Wendy Scinta, M.D., chief medical officer and advisory board member for 3Pound Health. “With Euco, I can easily monitor my patients' behavior and coach them when necessary. And not only can I focus better on individual patients with the help of Euco, I can also see more patients in my office and aggregate data from patients across my entire practice.”
