A Diary Owner (patient) who is under a care manager's care is not required to engage with The Diary app. The care manager can enter all information on the patient's behalf, and can even complete Assessments with the patient, either in person, or via phone. However, patients should be encouraged to engage with The Diary app in order to take advantage of Tasks that a care manager has assigned to them. Research has shown that patient engagement plays a significant role in improved health outcomes.
If the patient has an Apple Watch, they can be encouraged to voice-dictate health data into their Diary app. The Apple Watch data is entered into The Diary app, and Apple Health data enters The Diary, as well. (You can choose this off, if you prefer, by going to "Sources" in the Apple Health app.)
For help in setting up an Apple Watch for voice dictation into The Diary app, contact a Kindness Care Specialist via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
