NEW YORK, NY and FORT MILL, SC (March 4, 2019) – Lash Group, a patient support services company and a part of AmerisourceBergen, and AllazoHealth, an artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive analytics company focused on ensuring optimal patient outcomes, today announced a partnership that will enhance patient adherence and engagement programs through targeted and personalized recommendations that will empower at-risk patients to ultimately make healthier choices.
Studies have shown that medication nonadherence can be caused by a mix of situational and behavioral barriers that are unique to each patient and their health journey. With the use of AllazoHealth’s proprietary AllazoEngine, which precisely identifies at-risk patients through predictive analytics, Lash Group will be the first HUB services provider to leverage individualized patient predicted risk along with machine learning to provide personalized interventions that are unique to behaviors and treatment plans.
“At Lash Group, we are committed to providing the right blend of high-technology and hightouch services that drive patient engagement and ultimately improve the patient healthcare journey. By coupling an innovative technology solution, like the AllazoEngine, with Lash Group’s existing team of accredited, high-quality counselors and clinicians, we can offer our partners an advanced solution that will reduce barriers to treatment, increase access and enhance health outcomes,” said Tommy Bramley, President of Lash Group.
As part of its patient adherence and engagement offerings, Lash Group will leverage the AllazoEngine to recommend a specific cadence and intervention type through methods such as motivational text messages to patients, targeted touchpoints made by a clinician, or simple reminders delivered through our multi-channel services. The ability to correlate specific patient behavior with predictive risk allows Lash Group to adjust its communication style with each patient and recommend the most appropriate interventions within the care map.
The AllazoEngine is the only AI platform with effectiveness validated through peer-reviewed Randomized Control Trial (RCT). In fact, according to the RCT, the AllazoEngine was proven to achieve a 5.5x greater adherence uplift compared to traditional programs.
“We are pleased to be joining forces with Lash Group to provide better, more personalized support for patients of all types, and are excited by the opportunity to support Lash Group’s patients as part of their adherence programs,” said Clifford Jones, CEO of AllazoHealth.
