Patients are supported by their personal health networks of family members or health coaches who support their compliance needs and encourage healthy behaviors. iReminder's coaching and reminder services help patients manage chronic diseases, which affect over 130 million Americans and account for 70% of deaths at an annual cost of $1.3 trillion.
