In honor of American Heart Month, AHA and OH launch new initiative to improve heart health outcomes.

CHICAGO, Feb. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — In honor of American Heart Month, Outcome Health (formerly ContextMedia) today announces a collaboration with the American Heart Association. Through this joint initiative, health information produced by the American Heart Association will be delivered by way of Outcome Health’s technology platform to consultation rooms across 55,000 member offices. The two organizations will also collaborate to produce original video content and infographics to be shared with millions of patients via Outcome Health’s Digital Wallboards, Exam Room Tablets and Waiting Room Screens.

Outcome Health and the American Heart Association will work together to bring technology and information to cardiology consultations in order to improve understanding of heart conditions, decision making and treatment options to improve outcomes in the fight against cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in the United States.

“Outcome Health’s network will provide an effective platform for us to engage patients and share meaningful public health information about heart disease prevention, the importance of healthy lifestyle choices and science-based treatment guidelines to improve outcomes of heart conditions,” said Jason Dyer, SVP of Digital Marketing and Content Syndication. “We’re excited to work with Outcome Health to extend our information into the physician-patient consultation.”

Following its recent acquisition of AccentHealth, Outcome Health brings health information and intelligence to over 20% of all the outpatient facilities in the country. On Outcome Health’s Digital Wallboard, 3D anatomical renderings of the heart are used more than any other diagram, and in over 95% of cardiology-related consultations.

“Providing insights and content from the American Heart Association across our nationwide platform will be a benefit to millions of patients and caregivers who crave meaningful information and intelligence while they make decisions about preventing and managing heart disease,” said Anil Harjani, VP of Strategic Partnerships at Outcome Health. “With 12.4M unique patients visiting their physician annually for heart disease each year according to the CDC, the need for this type of intelligence during the consultation is urgent, and the opportunity for impact unmatched.”
