New York, New York and San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 10, 2016
May 10, 2016 - AMC Health, the leading provider of proven remote patient monitoring and engagement solutions that are exclusively endorsed by the American Hospital Association, and Revolve Robotics, one of the world’s leading innovators in robotic telepresence, today announced a partnership to help patients living with chronic conditions to better manage their health, strengthen their connections with their care teams and reduce unnecessary ED visits and hospitalizations.
By bringing together AMC Health’s expertise in improving outcomes through enhanced clinical efficiency and care coordination and Revolve Robotic’s flagship platform, Kubi, clinicians can now look around and remotely interact with patients. This results in more thorough e-visits, meaningful interventions and improved outcomes. AMC Health has integrated Kubi with its CareConsole® Mobile solution, which enables patients to have clinician-initiated e-visits, assessments and secure e-messaging capabilities on a single mobile device. This multi-year partnership signifies the companies’ shared pursuit of telehealth as accessible and effective to as many patients as possible.
AMC Health is focused on transforming healthcare delivery across chronic disease through remote patient monitoring and virtual care coordination. The company has proven through multiple studies, which are unprecedented in size and duration, cover various disease states and are published in independent, peer-reviewed publications, that outcomes can be improved significantly through connecting patients to their clinical teams on a real-time basis and expanding care beyond the walls of hospitals, doctors’ offices and outpatient settings.
Kubi leverages and improves videoconferencing with tablets by introducing a robotic platform or cradle on which the tablet sits. The resulting telepresence robot is then “driven” by the remote video-conferencing participant. Kubi turns traditionally passive video conferencing callers into active participants, as remote callers use Kubi to “look around” the room and actively engage with meeting participants. In this specific use case, Kubi helps clinicians using AMC Health solutions to better monitor and provide virtual care to patients with chronic conditions.
“We are consistently working to enhance the patient experience and support strong connections between patients and their care teams through our virtual care solutions,” said Nesim Bildirici, president and CEO of AMC Health. “Adding Kubi to our CareConsole® Mobile solution enables clinicians to gather more comprehensive information during an e-visit. Patients are able to show the clinician how they are taking their readings more easily because they won’t need to hold their mobile device at the same time. Enhanced patient experience, better data and increased interaction all lead to better outcomes.”
“AMC Health and Kubi together are a powerful tool for telemedicine, which allows providers to ensure they are delivering patients better care,” said Marcus Rosenthal, Revolve Robotics’ co-founder and CEO. “Kubi literally supports AMC Health, because now remote caregivers can look around while patients take their own blood pressure, to give a concrete example. Without the ability to control their point of view, patients can move out of view, and this solution reduces the chance of mistakes.”
