Voxiva and Health Dialog Recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Women's Health Programs
Date:10/24/2013

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) October 24, 2013

In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Voxiva, Inc. a pioneer in interactive health and wellness programs, and Health Dialog, a provider of shared health care decision-making aids, are pleased to recognize October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The companies are aligned in their efforts to provide individuals with information, support and confidence in managing their health. Voxiva is the developer of txt4health, a text message-based adult wellness program based on US Preventive Services Task Force national preventive health guidelines. Health Dialog has developed a portfolio of decision aids to help individuals in making appropriate medical treatment choices.

Txt4health users receive personalized, interactive text messages based on their gender and age, encouraging them to follow recommended guidelines for physical exams and screenings and reminding them to schedule and attend appointments. Adult women enrolled in Txt4health receive messages alerting them to the importance of annual mammograms and making them aware that early identification of breast cancer increases the potential success of treatment. Several leading health insurers have partnered with Voxiva to offer Txt4health to their Medicaid health plan members.

Health Dialog will be making its patient decision and planning aids on breast cancer publicly available throughout the month of October. The aids can be accessed through the Health Dialog website at http://www.healthdialog.com, or by clicking here.

Health Dialog’s early stage breast cancer and breast reconstruction surgery decision aids help guide patients through all stages of the decision making process, from explaining how to read a pathology report to illustrating what a patient can expect from different types of surgeries. Health Dialog also offers planning aids for patients and families who are having needle or breast biopsies to prepare for what will happen before, during and after the procedures. Patient-friendly explanations of medical terms, comparisons of treatment choices, photos, videos, diagrams, and a printable booklet enable patients to become active, engaged and informed as they make the medical decisions that are best for them.

"Voxiva is committed to providing personalized information, support, motivation and confidence to help each individual be as healthy as they can be. We hope that Txt4health's preventive guidance regarding breast cancer screening will help many women achieve that goal," said Paul Meyer, Voxiva’s Chairman & President.

“Facing a breast cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming so we’re proud to be working with Voxiva to jointly promote our resources for women with breast cancer,” said Robert Mandel, MD, Chief Executive Officer, Health Dialog. “At Health Dialog, we believe information is one of the best tools a patient can arm themselves with. All of our efforts in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month are in the interest of providing women and their families with access to information that will help them better understand their condition and treatment options so they can feel more confident when making critical decisions.”
