LAS VEGAS and LOS ANGELES, American Telemedicine Association 2015 Meeting & Tradeshow (PRWEB) May 03, 2015
vitaphone e-health solutions, a full-service telemedicine and mobile health services provider today announced the launch of its new platform, VITA health services for chronic disease management, in the U.S. market. The VITA health services platform enables remote patient monitoring of a variety of chronic medical conditions, such as congestive heart failure (CHF), diabetes, COPD, hypertension and other chronic illnesses.
Through a combination of advanced wireless, remote patient monitoring technology, secure software and proven communication processes and techniques delivered through a professionally-staffed Telemedicine Service Center, vitaphone’s VITA health services platform successfully extends health professionals’ reach into their patients’ homes – or wherever the patients may be – to assist in their treatment and ongoing coordinated care.
The announcement was made today from the vitaphone booth (#2428) at the Los Angeles Convention Center, during the 20th Annual ATA International Telemedicine Meeting & Tradeshow (#ATA2015), the premier forum for healthcare professionals and entrepreneurs in telemedicine, telehealth and mHealth.
Chronic Care - A Healthcare System Overwhelmed.
According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), each year in the United States, 1 out of every 4 deaths (about 610,000 people) is caused by heart disease. The CDC also estimates that 29.1 million people, 9.3% of the U.S. population, have diabetes.
“As the number of people with chronic health issues continues to rise here in the United States, healthcare professionals are being overwhelmed by an ever-increasing number of patients requiring attention and a finite number of hours in the day,” said Brad Tritle, President / CEO of vitaphone USA. “Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) systems, such as VITA health services, benefit doctors and other healthcare professionals by providing the information and analysis tools they need to more efficiently evaluate chronic conditions and prescribe treatment changes, if necessary, with minimal impact on their existing workflow.”
Higher Customer Satisfaction Levels.
Patients using a remote monitoring system as part of their treatment for chronic diseases report having a higher level of satisfaction with their healthcare provider, a better understanding of their condition, and more confidence in managing their condition. They often cite having more interactions, receiving more precise medication therapy, and the added convenience of not having to make transportation arrangements as frequently, as the most common reasons for giving the provider high marks.
Real-Time Data. Managed by Professionals.
Hospitals, home health and other health services providers using the VITA health services platform can rely on vitaphone to monitor patients from their professionally staffed telemedicine service center in Nevada. The intelligent patient monitoring system filters and triages all relevant patient data via exception-based algorithms, and vitaphone staff interactions, on behalf of the providers. Lastly, the VITA health services provider portal will also facilitate real-time access to patient biometrics and answers to patient questionnaires.
