The integration of this device goes a long way to reaching our goal of providing affordable, in-home biometric monitoring and between-visit care.
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) January 11, 2011
Chronic Care Management, Inc. is now offering the Fora Care D15b Blood Glucose plus Blood Pressure Monitoring System fully integrated into its personal disease management Wellness Gateway. People with chronic diseases can now use this two-in-one device to securely upload important blood pressure, heart rate and glucose data to the MyVirtualHealthCheck.com personal disease management platform. The result: access to critical health information that can be monitored, tracked and shared with caregivers and/or healthcare providers without installing any software.
The FORA D15b provides bluetooth connectivity to securely transfer patients' vital data (glucose, heart rate, and blood pressure) to the MyVirtualHealthCheck.com and VirtualHealthCheck.com health and disease management websites.
"We are excited about integrating Fora's 2-in-1 glucose and blood pressure monitoring device into the VirtualHealthCheck.com disease management Software-as-a-Service platform," said Michael Seringer, Vice President Chronic Care Management, Inc. "The integration of this device goes a long way to reaching our goal of providing affordable, in-home biometric monitoring and between-visit care."
Now health care providers can eliminate guesswork by developing chronic disease care plans based on accurate data, which can be evaluated over time. Caregivers can set thresholds and be alerted via web, email, phone or text message when specific vital measurements violate the predetermined care plan limits.
"Our Software-as-a-Service approach allows for quick and affordable implementation, and that frees up clinics, hospital systems, insurance companies, care givers and patients to focus on care plan compliance instead of cumbersome software implementations," Seringer said.
The complete system is available at the MyVirtualHealthCheck.com store and can be purchased for less than $500, making it one of the most affordable in-home disease management systems on the market today.
