Note: Healthie's nutrition and activity journaling is a feature that needs to be enabled by your provider. Moreover, your provider may turn on / off certain logging details based on your specific care plan, so you will likely not see all of these options as you log an entry. If you have any questions about logging food on Healthie, please message your provider.
Healthie uses Hunger Levels "Not" "Somewhat" and "Very" to enable you to indicate how hungry you are while eating a meal or snack.
Healthie uses a Pre-meal hunger scale to indicate how hungry you are to how full you are before a meal or snack on a scale of 1 to 10.
Healthie uses a Post-meal fullness scale to indicate how hungry you are to how full you are after a meal or snack on a scale of 1 to 10.
Your provider may enable a setting such that you can record your mood while making an entry. Mood options currently include Happy, Stressed, Tired, Confident, or Anxious.
Note: You may feel that not all of these moods are relevant to you. We are currently working on an update to increase the number of mood options available and will update this post when this is made available to you. Right now, your provider is not able to customize the mood options available to you either, but our forthcoming update will allow for more options and flexibility with regard to mood logging.
Healthie uses Healthiness benchmarks of "Thumbs down", "Thumbs sideways" or "Thumbs up" to enable you to indicate how healthy you think a certain meal choice is.
When you have posted an entry, you and your provider will see perceived healthiness.
Indicating whether the post is a "Meal" or a "Snack".
When you're done with your journal entry, click "Post Entry." Your entry will now be published and visible to your healthcare provider to review.
In the instance where you are logging a food journal entry from the mobile app, and the app closes out, your entry data will be saved. The next time you log into the app and click "Food," the information from your latest entry that you did not publish will populate. This will allow you to finish your entry and publish it.
Viewing Provider reactions & comments to entries
Your provider can indicate that they've seen your entry by responding with a comment or quick reaction.
A provider will typically use a quick reaction to acknowledge that they have viewed an entry, in an instance where a comment may not be necessary. These reactions include Thumbs up, Cheers, Great job, Celebrate, Wondering and Viewed.
You will NOT receive a notification when a provider clicks on this icon, for one of your entries, but it will be visible when you review your activity log.
Sharing your Journal
Note: At this time, it is not possible for you to export your journal, or share your journal electronically with other providers that are not connected with you on Healthie.
