Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Voxiva, Inc., a pioneer in interactive mobile health and wellness programs, announced today that their services have delivered more than 100 million health messages to consumers by text message. Voxiva’s Care4life portfolio of programs promote maternal & child health (Text4baby & Text4kids), adult health & wellness (Txt4health), smoking cessation (Text2quit), and diabetes self-management (Care4life Diabetes). These services are designed to help users take appropriate preventative health actions to stay healthy, more effectively manage chronic illness, and improve the quality metrics the health care industry is measured by.
Voxiva's programs are designed to give people the knowledge and confidence they need to live the healthiest life possible. The company combines evidence-based guidelines, state-of-the-art behavior change expertise and digital technology to engage and support individuals in staying healthy and managing illness. Voxiva works with the nation's leading health organizations to develop content for its programs, using guidelines and recommendations from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), American Diabetes Association (ADA), National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition (HMHB) and US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF).
Voxiva has evolved from its early days to offer a wide range of consumer facing digital health services, delivering personalized health information via text messaging, mobile web and mobile app interfaces. The company was founded in 2001 with the simple idea that health care can be transformed on a broad scale by leveraging mobile devices. Voxiva has deployed mobile health services in 17 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and North and South America, helping public health systems deploy tools to fight disease. Notably, Voxiva's Peruvian disease surveillance system documented over 100,000 health events and led the detection of 18 disease outbreaks. Voxiva's Rwanda system is the first and longest-standing national health information system in Africa, managing records for 100,000 people receiving HIV/AIDS treatment.
“At Voxiva, we are working to create a world where every person is as healthy as they can be. And we believe that our unique approach, and your cell phone, can help reach that goal. The one hundred million health messages we have delivered to moms, parents, people living with diabetes, even smokers, are moving us toward that vision. And most importantly, research results are demonstrating that the health of our users is improving,” says Paul Meyer, Chairman and President of Voxiva.
