The Good Health Gateway® web site is a primary member communication, health behavior tracking and incentive administration tool. This tool can be customized to assist in the management of any health and wellness program or medical condition, by engaging and rewarding members for health behaviors based on established clinical guidelines. The key to effective management of chronic disease or any condition management is to help the member understand which behaviors are necessary to manage their condition and why. The Good Health Gateway web site can help you do just that.
