This month AHHA’s Health Advocate features Tina Campbell, PhD discussing the important role Healthily’s digital patient education app ‘GoShare’ is playing in Australia’s evolving health system – supporting innovative approaches to chronic disease management, health literacy and effective person-centred care.
This transformation sees a more collaborative partnership between health consumer and practitioner – where patients are being supported to take an active and informed role in their health and wellbeing. GoShare supports this, and responds to Australia’s need to support health literacy. The app enables practitioners to deliver evidence-based tailored health information directly to patients. The article highlights the innovative collaboration with WentWest, Western Sydney Local Health District @westsydhealth and Healthily, and the region wide roll out commencing with the Health Care Homes and Rapid Access and Stabilisation Service teams.
