Research shows that people who have accountability partners have far better adherence than those without. My Care Circle allows you to connect with others who can encourage you to follow your care plan. Using the HealthStar app, people added to the your My Care Circle will be updated on your progress in completing the assigned medications, tasks, surveys, and quizzes in a chat.
You and your My Care Circle members can then communicate in group chats to share progress, struggles, victories and encouragement.
To begin using the My Care Circle, you will need to assign yourself a chat alias (if you did not already do this as part of your account creation process). To do that, go to More section and select My Account. Under Settings, select Chat alias.
There you can select an animal avatar, your name and your color.
Once an alias has been configured, you will need to add people to your My Care Circle. To add members, go to the More section and select My Contacts.
There you can add the contact information for each of your Care Circle members.
It is important that the e-mail addresses provided are accurate as it is required to receive an invitation to download the HealthStar app.
You can check the status of your My Care Circle members by viewing their information in the My Contact section.
Once the member has received your invitation (be sure to check junk mail / spam if it is not received), they can click on the link to Accept the Invite. This will direct the member to download the app (either from Google Play or App Store).
After downloading the app, they will configure their profile including their chat profile (similar to the steps you followed above).
All My Care Circle members will receive notifications about your progress both on the home screen and in their Chat section.
You and your My Care Circle members can use Chat to communicate and view updates on your task adherence.
NOTE - My Care Plan feature may not be available on your app based on the plan built by your provider.
