CareBridge Palliative Care Services Selects Authentidate's Electronic House
Call and Interactive Voice Response Telehealth Solutions for Remote Patient
BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., July 9, 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 CareBridge Palliative Care Services has selected Authentidate's
Electronic House Call™ (EHC) and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) telehealth
solutions to extend their clinical services to patients remotely. CareBridge
Palliative Care Services intends to provide their patients with extended
services including patient wellness programs, as well as remote monitoring and
clinical management of patients with chronic illnesses or those who require
palliative care. They also plan to offer remote monitoring services to
businesses and health plans throughout Ohio for their employees and members.
"The delivery of high quality remote healthcare has improved through the
emergence of proven, reliable telehealth solutions like those we've selected
from Authentidate to extend our clinical services. EHC and IVR enable us to
provide clinical support and oversight to a much wider range of patients with
more diverse medical needs while maintaining the flexibility to support them
remotely in their homes, at work or away," commented Joe Killian, Chief
Executive Officer of CareBridge Palliative Care Services.
The Electronic House Call device and the Interactive Voice Response telehealth
solutions both allow patients to continue with their daily routines, while
providing for frequent updates of patient data to healthcare providers without
a face-to-face visit. Medical teams use EHC and IVR to remotely monitor and
oversee the progress of their patients, reducing costs and allowing for
improved patient care. EHC and IVR are used for patients on wellness programs
and for those who require ongoing management of chronic diseases such as
Chronic Heart Failure (CHF), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD),
Diabetes, Hypertension and Sleep Apnea or palliative care. The easy-to-use EHC
touch screen device or IVR voice prompts deliver better continuity of care to
specific patient segments that require regular monitoring of medical
conditions. Automated reminders increase patients' compliance with care plans,
diets, medication schedules and follow-up physician visits. Healthcare
providers can also view each patient's vital statistics and make adjustments
to care plans on the secure web application, which is then communicated to the
patient via the EHC or IVR service during scheduled sessions. While improving
medical condition monitoring, EHC or IVR can also provide patients with
disease management education.
"CareBridge Palliative Care Services is a leading provider of quality
healthcare services in Ohio. We are pleased to support the extension of their
clinical services with our EHC and IVR telehealth solutions," said Marcus
Wagstaff, Sales Director at Authentidate.
