What can I do with Pathcare?
Pathcare Private Messaging
- Simple to use interface with familiar features of compose, send, reply and forward.
- Private and secure messaging with members of your support groups, without the exposure to spam and time-wasting effects of email.
- Powerful tools for sorting and selecting messages.
- Easy, 1-click sharing of files and articles to individual member, groups of members or entire support group. Support groups can be as small as 2 or 3 or hundreds. The intimate, mindful connection is maintained.
- Pathcare Groups are a powerful yet simple and controlled way to share content – for example, in PD support group, a facilitator can share newly-found drug contraindications with hundreds of Parkinson Disease patients and family members in remote locations with a single click.
- Pathcare features both Private Groups – where all interactions are 1:1 as well as Community Groups, where members can share comments in a facilitated discussion while maintaining the privacy of private conversations with the group leader.
- Runs on all browsers and is mobile-friendly.
Benefits for facilitators
- Having the entire thread of conversations online makes it easier and faster to take a decision
- You save time in face-to-face group meetings because members can record events and experiences before they come in to the meeting. Data is more accurate since people can record critical events like falls and blood pressure drops, in proximity to the event itself.
- A facilitator achieves earlier and more consistent understanding of issues and can reduce the cost of inappropriate activities since the data is more timely and more accurate accurate.
- You can respond faster to changes in members’ condition and refine the plan with better follow up on tasks, subjects, problems, since the data is now flowing in both directions – from group leader to member and member to group leader.
- The mindful collaboration inherent in Pathcare heightens your members trust and confidence in you. More confidence and trust helps achieve exceptional performance by the group.
Benefits for members
- Pathcare is always on – and helps facilitators and members agree on boundaries and times of interaction.
- Knowing that your group leader is listening to you in a 1 on 1 conversation increases trust.
