WHy it matters

Taking care of our health is a part of our every day lives, not just when we visit our doctor. Our health literacy can be connected to our health status and our overall outcomes. Greater health literacy can help us prevent problems and allow us to make informed decisions about our health.

How can we help?

Create an accessible platform that provides the necessary information and services people can effectively use

Collaborate with providers and other health professionals to help individuals build their health knowledge

Become a comprehensive source for health management to empower all individuals

WHAT WE DO

mHealth Wellness creates apps that provide information to educate and to improve an individual's health literacy. We promote education retention through our quizzing format in hopes of better managing and understanding your health needs.

How it works

Quizzing is an effective and evidence based proven learning tool. Frequent quizzing is shown to improve memory retention and performance. It works on the basis of the "testing effect" or "retrieval practice".  Our mind stores a vast amount of information and without any use of it, that knowledge can disappear. The idea of reviewing that material through repetition is what allows us to retrieve the information when we need it.
