GETTYSBURG, Pa., April 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CoCENTRIX, a behavioral health software company, has announced the launch of CARETILES, a new marketplace of interactive, mobile applications designed to engage consumers receiving health and human services. As part of the launch, the executive web briefing, "Closing The Clinical Loop: Integrated & Mobile Consumer Engagement for HHS," will be held on May 1 at 2:00 PM EDT, and will feature two case studies presented by the Mississippi Adolescent Center (MAC) and Elwyn, Inc.
"CARETILES is a unique marketplace of applications that enhance consumer engagement and allow the individual to be an active participant in their care plan," said Bill Keyes, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at CoCENTRIX. "CARETILES integrates with the electronic health record, closing the clinical loop by allowing consumers and clinicians to actively monitor the individual, track progress, and document compliance with individual care plans."
The webinar will feature talkingtiles, the first application launched in the CARETILES marketplace. The talkingtiles mobile app provides individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities with the tools needed for assisted daily living, assisted communication and visual interactive learning.
"The ability to push interventions in real time to the individual's device and track progress with the talkingtiles app is empowering organizations with the ability to engage their residents and enhance their quality of life as they transition back into the community," said Keyes.
The executive briefing will present two case studies of CARETILES in action.
