Press Release | Wanda | August 18, 2016

myWanda Acts as a Personal Companion, Motivator, and Educator for Women to Enable Them to Manage Their Heart Health

/ -- SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/18/16 -- Wanda (, a leading digital health platform dedicated to advancing the effectiveness and efficiency of chronic health condition management, today announced the launch of myWanda, the first and only mobile application specifically aimed at empowering women to improve the health of their hearts.

Wanda is expanding its analytics ecosystem with mobile applications to engage individuals earlier in their lives, onboarding them onto the Wanda platform. myWanda will also add considerably to the richness of Wanda's data and machine-learning engine, enabling the Company to advance upcoming product applications and features.

Available today in the iTunes App Store, myWanda delivers personalized support for developing heart healthy behaviors. The app encourages women to set specific lifestyle goals known as "Pathways" for exercise, nutrition, sleep, stress management, and hydration. myWanda then delivers daily tips, advice, and inspiration to help women stay on track to achieve these goals, thereby creating measureable improvements to their heart health and overall well-being.

Although heart disease is the number one killer of women in America, approximately 80 percent of cases are preventable through education and lifestyle changes. This is where myWanda comes in -- leveraging data science, applied medical research, and proven engagement methodologies to deliver support through a compelling, visually-driven mobile interface.

"myWanda is driving a revolution in healthcare that re-positions the patient to the very center of the care process," said Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, renowned cardiologist and Medical Director of Wanda. "I'm thrilled to align my passion for educating women about heart health with myWanda's intelligent, impactful solution. Our goal is to empower women with the tools and knowledge they need to take control of their own health."

As Wanda's Medical Director, Dr. Steinbaum oversees the clinical content, consumer engagement, and clinical integrity. Dr. Steinbaum is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, and is the National Spokesperson for the Go Red for Women campaign. Experience and expertise has given Dr. Steinbaum a close view of the critical role that technology plays in managing women's healthcare; and she has seen in myWanda an innovative technology solution that stands out among health apps and demonstrates the potential to improve health, quality care, and convenience for women.

Wanda has long been dedicated to simplifying and improving the lives of individuals with chronic health conditions, blending predictive analytics and behavioral science to enrich the remote health and patient management experience. Through its research, Wanda identified the importance of proactively addressing the unique needs of women who are at risk of heart disease today. myWanda is the company's first consumer app, featuring a leading-class personalized communication strategy that makes it easy for women to receive support, education, and guidance.

"We're excited to bring a technology solution to market that can truly inform, motivate, and support women to take better care of their hearts, while continuing to advance our deep understanding of chronic conditions and the individual behaviors which affect them," said Wanda CEO Steve Curd, who is also former CIO of UnitedHealthCare and former COO of WebMD.

myWanda is already enjoying interest from large employers, especially those in healthcare, hoping to promote myWanda to their employees, members and communities. Such relationships with healthcare organizations are expected to open doors for the introduction and adoption of Wanda's core commercial solutions which are designed to prevent costly and disruptive hospital readmissions for those suffering with chronic diseases. The launch of myWanda expands Wanda's mission to proactively interact with people at various phases in the progression of disease -- from earliest risk identification and prevention through diagnosis and treatment. Most importantly, Wanda directly addresses the growing demand for science-driven solutions for post-acute and home-centered care.

"At Wanda, our approach has always been clear: how do we translate the most advanced technological capabilities into human-centered solutions," according to CCO Mark Heinemeyer. "The myWanda app truly embodies the vision of harnessing powerful technologies to improve people's lives."
