Make a Bigger Impact During Stroke Awareness Month

Stroke Awareness Month

May is Stroke Awareness month. It seems fitting that billboards will pop up reminding people to think FAST or BE FAST – Balance issues, Eye/vision problems,  Facial drooping, Arm weakness, Speech difficulty, Time to call emergency services. Of course, this is absolutely important information. To be sure, there is no need to diminish its value. But what else can be done to help consumers better understand their own health status? Wouldn’t it be great if you could help them understand their likelihood of experiencing a stroke? You can!

What We Offer for Stroke Awareness Month:

At HealthAware, our user-friendly online StrokeAware risk assessment integrates seamlessly into your current programs while allowing the community to take the first step towards discovering health risks and taking action to improve their well-being. 

Additionally, HealthAware will be releasing v3 of our popular StrokeAware assessment this year. This assessment uses the National Stroke Association Stroke Risk Scorecard and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association Guidelines for the Primary Prevention of Stroke.  It will provide key results in 3 categories of high, moderate, low.

How Marketers Can Help:

Based on the risk stratification the user receives, there exist immediate opportunities to promote care resources. These can include chronic care management, smoking cessation programs, fitness classes, diabetes support groups, and a number of other services your organization already has in place. Consumers love choices. Take advantage of that. Our Stroke Assessment presents a way to identify which path best fits a user’s individual situation and readiness-for-change.

We Found That: Our Stroke Assessment is Always a Top Performer

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.

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.
