The Department of Veterans Affairs Approves the Integration of Authentidate's
Telehealth Solutions With Its VistA Health Records System
BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Jan. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Authentidate Holding
Corp. (Nasdaq:ADAT),a provider of secure web-based software applications and
telehealth products and services for healthcare organizations, today announced
that it has completed the integration and required testing of the interface
between its Electronic House Call (EHC) and Interactive Voice Response (IVR)
telehealth solutions and the Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) VistA
Electronic Health Records system. The VA has approved the integration of both
solutions with the VistA system which is expected to enable the VA to reduce
the time for patient enrollment on Authentidate's EHC and IVR solutions as
well as the flow of patient data back to the VistA system.
Sunil Hazaray, Chief Commercial Officer at Authentidate said, "This is another
important development for our VA telehealth project as we work closely with
the VA to meet their needs. The new interface to VistA is designed to make it
faster and easier for Clinicians to enroll patients, manage patient care plans
and get patient results back into the VistA electronic medical records system.
We have also received approval for a number of new Disease Management
Protocols (DMPs) over the past few months for both our EHC and IVR solutions
which continues to make our solutions available to a larger patient population
at the VA. We believe the new interface and DMPs will help us to accelerate
the adoption of our EHC and IVR solutions throughout the VA and we remain
committed to providing the best possible solutions for our veterans."
Authentidate is an approved vendor for the EHC and IVR telehealth solutions in
the VA's national home telehealth program. VA clinicians use Authentidate's
telehealth solutions to remotely monitor their patients' vital signs and
gather qualitative information about their patients' health to supplement
in-person visits and help improve patient compliance with their care plans.
Clinicians can review their patients' remote monitoring session results
securely using Authentidate'sweb-basedapplication and remotelymanage or
adjust their patients' care plans, medication reminders and related
information. Clinicians can also use the web-based application to provide
disease-specific education to their patients in real-time through the EHC or
the IVR solutions.
EHC's large color touch-screen is designed for simplicity and ease-of-use and
Clinicians can easily switch their patients between the EHC and IVR solutions
if the patient is travelling or has to go back to a short- or long-term
rehabilitation care unit. Because all of the information is retained on the
same web-based application, there is no break in continuity of care for those
veterans that need to switch between solutions. The IVR solution also provides
a flexible, mobile alternative for those patients with conditions that do not
require a home-based EHC unit.
