Essence of 4D Healthware

4D Healthware is simple but powerful, we provide virtual health management for patients (simple) and connect them to their clinical care team (powerful). We improve patient engagement and outcomes.

Patients and Caregivers

Providing self-care or being a caregiver seems like something that might be intuitive, however, caring for yourself or a loved one can be challenging and downright difficult. We want you and your family to have access to the appropriate care, services and support you need to live your best life with the highest quality possible.

Health Systems, Physician’s Groups, Practices

We are a patient and clinician centered organization that is focused on ensuring that your practice is earning the maximum revenue allowed under the new value based incentive programs.

Did You Know

Diabetics can be monitored at home with a glucometer that sends data to our platform and over time ‘highs’ and ‘lows’ can be predicted and treated to better manage diabetes and leading to improved A1C levels?

Feature Highlights

Patient Summaries

These summaries are very useful for the Care Team and Doctors to analyse the current medical state a Patient is in. They can create new alerts for the patient, assign tasks to other team members, etc.

Monthly Report

The Care Team and Doctors have 24hr access to a monthly report which clearly shows improvements and/or areas of concern they need to address with their Patient.

Patient Goals

Patients can see their overall progress and track their success in reaching the goals they set for themselves. The better they get at taking daily readings, walks, etc, the higher their status will become.

Medication Management

Patients can add and manage the medicine they are on and Doctors can always see it and advise accordingly.

Constant Contact

Patients are able to setup a video call with their Care team and vice versa, at any time.


This is where patients are able to track their medical readings and statistics in detail and in real time.


We all need a bit of daily motivation, but when it comes to Chronic Disease Management, these messages can save lives. When the system notices irregular patterns, increases in heart rate or blood pressure, or even data not coming through from devices, 4D gets notified, and we will send the patient custom messages to eradicate the problem or motivate the patient to do better.

Need to Know

Value-Based Reimbursements

Even though fee-for-service models are still around, the shift to value-based care and value-based reimbursements is here. The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) is a volume to value transformation…

Patients don’t pay, Providers don’t pay. WHO PAYS?

As a lifesaving tool for Chronic Care Management, it would only make sense for 4D Healthware to be very expensive.

Why 4D?

• Value-Based Reimbursements
• Ability to bill for various codes
• Adapting to new and changing codes
• Easy Implementation
• EHR Integration
• Clinical Advisor Team for Patients
