Pyx Health App
In 2018, we implemented the Pyx Health App or Pyx for our members. Since the beginning, B – UFC/ALTCS has been able to identify social determinants of health (SDOH). B – UFC/ALTCS has identified SDOH gaps and loneliness patterns in our members.
By identifying these gaps, B – UFC/ALTCS has helped our members with early interventions before problems escalate. SDOH are those areas that are non-medical that may influence one’s healthcare. Examples of SDOH include income, education, unemployment, and housing.
Data reported by members who used Pyx:
66% of Pyx users reported feeling more connected to their health care team.
72% reported high satisfaction with the application.
53% of members reported avoiding higher levels of care just from speaking with a compassionate call center representative.
36% of screened members have had a reduction in loneliness.
43% have had a reduction in depression.
Combined 59% of members with a reduction in their UCLA-3 screening and in their PHQ screenings.
