Dossia Launches New Livli Social Network to Promote Better Consumer
Free Online Service Promotes Well-Being in Interactive Setting That
Targets and Tracks a Healthier Lifestyle
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/24/12 -- Dossia, a leading
electronic health management provider, announced the launch of Livli
-- www.livli.com -- a free, online social network and resource center
dedicated to consumer health and well-being.
Livli provides steps designed to empower users to improve their
health and well-being by identifying specific goals and tracking a
user's progress toward achieving them. The site can also connect
users with individuals who have similar goals, enabling them to
interact about specific topics such as weight loss, parenting, life
experiences and more. Through these communities as well as articles
posted to the site by other individuals, users can find answers to
their health and well-being questions.
"Livli is unique in that it combines social networking capabilities
with expert content and health tools, all of which is customized by
real health information," said Steve Munini, Dossia's Chief Operating
Officer. "We look forward to offering an increasing number of
compelling, consumer-oriented personal health and well-being
solutions through Livli."
Users also have access to Dossia's Health Marketplace through Livli.
Through the marketplace, Livli recommends personal health
applications and tools to users related to their personal goals.
These applications cover a wide variety of healthcare needs such as
stress management, weight loss/fitness tips, blood pressure
monitoring, disease management and prevention and healthcare billing
issues. Users can download the applications to their Dossia Health
Manager account where the information is kept private and secure.
Dossia will expand the Health Marketplace based on the need and
demand from site users.
"The Dossia Marketplace takes Livli into the realm of consumer
empowerment over healthcare and spending," said Mike Critelli,
Dossia's Chief Executive Officer. "Livli recognizes all of us are in
clinical settings a relatively small part of the time, but are
responsible for managing our health most of the time. It also builds
upon the Dossia Health Manager capability of enabling a family care
ader to manage the health of its family."
Dossia plans to make Livli available to its key customers including
its largest client, Walmart. Walmart is rolling out Livli to its 1.4
million associates in the U.S. and their dependents.
