“Patients have more choices and can decide if they want to come here or there. If you are engaged with patients, you will have more of a relationship and that’s important,” said Cynthia Esser, director of emerging technologies for Butler Health System in the article.

Wellbe designs easy-to-follow Guided CarePaths around a healthcare facility’s existing content and aligns them to their program’s clinical pathways to help patients on their journeys to better health.

“It’s great to see Butler Health System getting recognition for being a forward-thinking and innovative community hospital,” said James Dias, CEO and Founder of Wellbe. “With an industry in flux, it’s critical for all organizations to step out toward the future state of healthcare and engage their patients using digital technology.”
