Based on their characteristics, they may receive a different care plan since the platform is tailored for each individual.

The Virtual Platform encourages individuals to actively participate in the self-management of their own health and wellness with the support of their family, friends, advocates and healthcare providers. Keeping patients informed of their condition, treatment history and “road map to health” is easy using our Circle of Care feature where patients can share their care plans with their circle of care. The conversation feature also allows for secure online communication between patients and their circle of care.
