San Francisco Health Plan’s Innovative Diabetes Text Messaging Program Expanded to Include Members Affected with Asthma
Date:9/23/2013

information to our members is always a challenge. This program allows us to get messages to people in the way they prefer - quick, short, sound bites," said Dr. Kelly Pfeifer, Chief Medical Officer of San Francisco Health Plan.

Bern Shen, HealthCrowd's Chief Medical Officer, said, "SFHP's market leadership and track record of innovation and quality make them an ideal partner, and we aim to demonstrate meaningful improvements in HEDIS measures as a result of this study."

Approximately 250 members are enrolled in the pilot diabetes program, representing various ages and five languages (English, Chinese, Spanish, Vietnamese and Russian).

In the coming months, SFHP will measure the impact of the program on clinical care and patient satisfaction, while expanding the program to additional populations.
