Healthcare Literacy is defined as the patient’s capacity to obtain, process, understand and retain the basic health information needed to make appropriate health care decisions for healthful outcomes.

Arche Healthcare’s clinical care experience provides an interactive means for physicians to engage, educate and inform their patients of their potential for developing diabetic foot complications and their critical need for self-monitoring.

A patient will respond to what they can see. Arche Healthcare’s diagnostic devices build on a “SHOW & TELL” experience where “SEEING IS BELIEVING” is the cornerstone of our highly insightful patient experience.

For the first time, a patient with diabetes will be provided with a comprehensive review of their risk factors for developing a potentially life-threatening foot complication that includes a comparative visual reference of their everchanging biomechanics and associated foot pressure profile.

Arche Healthcare’s Guidelines for Patient Engagement

  • You must PREVENT complications before they appear-once they appear it’s too late…
  • You must IDENTIFY precursor symptoms before you can monitor them-if you can’t see them, you can’t monitor them…
  • Patients must UNDERSTAND their risks before they will acknowledge them-if they can’t see them, they likely won’t acknowledge they exist…
  • You can’t MANAGE what you can’t MEASURE…
