“The convergence of Remote Patient Monitoring and data analytics offers the potential for both short-term cost saving benefits and the development of long-term strategic population health advantages, and will eventually become an essential, strategic capability for all healthcare partners including payers, providers and accountable care organizations.”
“Connected Health” is defined by some to include primarily remote care programs (e.g., telehealth, remote patient monitoring or RPM, and lifestyle management programs). However, Entra Health leadership believes remote offerings represent only one side of “the connected health equation.” Both Entra Health and Parallax Health Management believe the purpose of connected health is not simply to push healthcare into the home, but rather to connect healthcare providers and patient-clients to the data and applications each needs to maximize the value of healthcare services wherever and however these may be offered or used.
Microsoft’s connected partners share the vision of today’s most forward looking healthcare professionals who recognize that “connected health” strategies have the potential to revolutionize the quality and economics of healthcare by enhancing and extending the relationships between patients, doctors, and other providers of health and wellness services. Entra Health’s goal is to provide remote patient monitoring technologies to Parallax Health Management for use in connected health applications and telemedicine services wherever and however these are delivered. Their integrated healthcare partnership solutions can save time, money and lives.
Together, Entra Health and Parallax Health Management can change the paradigm of connected health by combining technology, EMR integration, mobile apps, logistics services, data analytics, call centers, and best in class clinical coordination plans, all managed on the Microsoft cloud.
“Connected Health” leveraging the Microsoft Cloud, helps bridge the gap between healthcare providers and their patient-clients to the data, information and services each of these requires – wherever, whenever, or however needed, through strategic consorting of hardware, software, support & solutions providers. Managing population health is the road to achieving positive health outcomes. EntraCare is the vehicle; CRF Health is the Driver; Microsoft is the super highway” Matt Weisensee
Parallax Health Management, a subsidiary of Parallax Life Sciences, a Los Angeles basesd compound pharmacy, and Entra Health, A CRF Health Company and maker of the world’s first blood glucose meter with integrated Bluetooth communications technology, have aligned to demonstrate an end-to-end Remote Patient Monitoring system. The two organizations plan to examine the benefits and results of using mobile devices (IoT), mobile data services and the entraCare Kit, wireless glucose meter, scale, Pulse Oximeter, Thermometer, BP, and Activity tracker to report biometric readings, survey results, video teleconsults, and insurance data via a secure web portal.
The MyGlucoHealth system uses a meter with an integrated Bluetooth wireless capability to transmit test results to a data collection hub (mobile phone/Tablet) and then to the MyHealthPoint RPM platform, a secure web portal licensed in over 50 countries. Test results are time and date stamped and cannot be modified by the patient. The portal can be accessed by the patient’s diabetes care team, family members and others as allowed by the patient. A variety of analytics, trend analysis and other charting capabilities make review of the data fast and easy.
In addition, a unique feedback mechanism using SMS text messages and emails to the patient’s mobile phone encourages testing compliance and provides other motivational information. The system also alerts the patient in the case of out-of-range readings. For the patient’s care team, alerts can be customized to include alerts for high/low readings, trend warnings, low testing frequency, and other parameters keys to improving care. Our platform allows our clients to conduct Video Consultations, collect qualitative surveys, and real-time biometric data.
