(“Eruptr”or the “Company”), a leading provider of ROI-focused digital marketing patient engagement and customer acquisition solutions for hospitals and healthcare systems, is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition of the health risk assessment (“HRA”) business line of Medicom Health, LLC (“Medicom Health”), further expanding Eruptr’s suite of digital marketing offerings.

Headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, Medicom Health’s HRA business provides health risk assessment and patient engagement solutions to aid consumer awareness of disease risk and assist patients in finding appropriate and necessary health care provider expertise. Medicom Health offers a full suite of assessments that are customizable and seamlessly integrate into care provider’s technology and marketing efforts.

Medicom Health and HealthAware are highly complementary and the two solutions under Eruptr will allow the Company to offer hospital and health care systems a best-in-class suite of digital marketing solutions at scale.

Eruptr’s CEO and Co-Founder, Kevin Minnelli, remarked, “This acquisition represents another exciting milestone for Eruptr. We are not only gaining a highly experienced team of technology and healthcare professionals to join the Eruptr family, but also a best-in-class technology solution that is highly synergistic and augments our suite of offerings.”

J.K. Lloyd, President and Co-Founder of Eruptr, added, “This is another step forward in our belief that healthcare organizations are looking for smarter and more effective ways to identify, engage and convert patients. Medicom Health will allow us to help our clients better leverage technology to address their marketing objectives.”

Tony Huth, CEO and Co-Founder of Medicom Health, commented, “Eruptr is a world-class organization that we have worked with for many years. We couldn’t be more excited to join forces and deliver clients an expanded set of best of breed solutions.”

Patient Consent to Communication of Personal Health Information (PHI) through Standard SMS/Text Message and/or Email

Welcome! Your healthcare provider has partnered with HealthAware to help guide you through your care plan.

Who is HealthAware?
HealthAware provides health support programs (HSPs) delivered via standard SMS/text message and/or email. Your HSP is under the direction of your healthcare provider and is designed to support you in your health journey by providing education information related to:

  • Your health support program
  • Behavioral prompts/check-ins
  • Assessments/progress reports
  • Appointment reminders
  • Other health related messages or programs pertaining to my health support program

These HealthAware programs are for educational purposes only. They cannot provide, and are not intended as a substitute for medical care. The programs are automated, and therefore not actively monitored. In the event that medical care is needed, please call your healthcare provider or 911.

Why do I need to accept this patient consent?
HealthAware uses standard SMS/text messages and email messages that are not encrypted to communicate information with you about your HSP. Consequently, there is a risk that an unauthorized third party could view the information being transmitted.

To whom does HealthAware disclose my PHI (Personal Health Information)?
HealthAware only discloses PHI to you and your healthcare provider. HealthAware does not disclose PHI to any other party, such as marketing or sales organizations.

Consent
By clicking “accept” on a web page, clicking a link that is clearly labeled as a means of indicating consent, or replying “yes” to my consent prompt via text message, I agree to the following:

I hereby consent and state my preference for HealthAware to communicate with me via SMS/text message and/or email regarding various aspects of my health support program (HSP), which may include my PHI, behavioral prompts/check-ins, assessments and progress reports, appointment reminders, and other health related messages or programs pertaining to my health support program.

I understand that standard SMS/text messaging and email are not confidential methods of communication and may be insecure. I further understand that, because of this, there is a risk that standard SMS/text messaging and email regarding my medical care might be intercepted and read by a third party.

I may revoke this consent in writing except to the extent that HealthAware and/or my healthcare provider has already made disclosures in reliance upon my prior consent. If I do not accept this consent, or if I later revoke it, the commencement, continuation, or quality of my treatment will not be affected, but my enrollment with the HSP delivered by HealthAware will be terminated.
