User-defined content including for complex chronic disease management can be shared to patients as ‘care plans’. Patients can access their care plans through an intuitive patient portal that allows them to create self-directed health goals and actions, a value tracker for self-reported metrics, and visualizations that show progress over time. Patients can view their gallery from the Care Plans portal and directly upload photos and documents.
