BIRMINGHAM, Ala., February 25, 2021 / – Leading patient engagement platform Pack Health today announced its new partnership with Physicians Health Plan of Northern Indiana (PHP). The two organizations will be partnering to provide PHP members with Pack Health’s patient engagement platform in an effort to support PHP members with chronic conditions.
PHP will provide all members who fall within the eligibility criteria with the option to enroll in Pack Health. Pack Health and PHP’s partnership focuses on supporting PHP’s health plan members who are diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension, Obesity, Prediabetes, or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Pack Health will provide eligible members with one-on-one health coaching via phone, text, and email.

“We are excited to partner with Pack Health and to offer this exciting opportunity to our members,” says Katie Kent, RN, Quality Nurse at PHP. “This program will be available to our members at no cost and will provide them with resources they need to manage and understand underlying chronic conditions. Our partnership with Pack Health is another step towards improving the health and wellness of our member population.”
Pack Health’s remote-based patient engagement combines health coaching with evidence-based, clinically validated behavior change support programming. Upon sign up, members are matched with a personal Health Advisor who provides one-on-one support through phone calls, texts, and emails. Over the duration of the program, members learn tangible, actionable methods to improve their health behaviors, increase health outcomes, and implement sustainable condition self-management strategies.
