ECZEMAWISE RECOGNIZED WITH TOP PRIZES FROM EHEALTHCARE LEADERSHIP AWARDS FOR SECOND YEAR RUNNING

App created by the National Eczema Association helps patients and caregivers manage their eczema between doctor visits.

NOVATO, Calif., Nov. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Eczema Association (NEA) announced that it was presented with multiple top prizes from the eHealthcare Leadership Awards for its app, EczemaWise for the second year in a row. This year, EczemaWise received the Silver prize for Best Mobile App, Best Care/Disease Management and Best Email Content – Email Series. The award recipients in all categories were announced on November 6, 2023. In 2022, EczemaWise was recognized by eHealthcare Leadership Awards with the highest-level Platinum prize in the categories of both Best Care/Disease Management and Best Mobile App.

An estimated 31 million Americans of all ages live with eczema, a complex disease without a known cause or cure, and a lived experience that affects everyone differently. Eczema is also a chronic condition, meaning it needs to be managed over the long term and it can have a significant impact on a person's overall well-being, as well as affecting sleep and mental health.

"We're thrilled to see EczemaWise receive top honors again this year from eHealthcare Leadership Awards, and in multiple categories," said Wendy Smith Begolka, Chief Strategy Officer at NEA. "We developed the app with input from the eczema patient community and physicians to help individuals better understand and manage their eczema and improve their quality of life." 

EczemaWise allows adult patients and caregivers of any age patient to track eczema symptoms, triggers and treatments, log photos and read up on the latest eczema news and tips so they can feel more in control of their condition and engaged in their care. EczemaWise also facilitates shared decision-making between patients and physicians with tools that help patients prepare for a doctor's visit and keep track of their eczema between visits.

EczemaWise is free and available as a web app as well as a mobile app through the Apple App Store and Google Play. Learn more and sign up at EczemaWise.org
