Clinton Foundation Promotes Wellness Apps

The Clinton Health Matters Initiative, an 11-month-old effort of the William J. Clinton Foundation to lessen health disparities between socioeconomic and racial groups, “will offer health and wellness apps to people in participating communities via a mobile platform from Boston-based startup Wellable,” according to Mobi Health News.

“In the initial phase of the collaboration, Wellable will provide its app management and analytics technology to healthcare organizations and employer groups in the four current Clinton Health Matters Initiative service regions, namely the Houston and Little Rock, Arkansas metropolitan areas, as well as in California’s Coachella Valley and Northwest Florida. Later, the company will expand beyond those geographic areas to work nationwide with employees of the 45 companies that formally support the health initiative.”

“The Wellable system provides a smartphone platform that delivers and connects data from other health and wellness apps, with each client choosing the apps… With the Clinton Health Matters Initiative, Wellable will be working directly with employers and Clinton Foundation in each region to deliver apps to smartphone users in an effort to improve health status and outcomes.”
