NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
AMC Health, the leading provider of proven real-time virtual care solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with Geneia to expand the analytic solutions and services company’s successful @HomeSM remote patient monitoring program. Together, AMC Health and Geneia will deploy the remote monitoring solution to a broader population. Geneia’s @Home solution has demonstrated measurable results for heart failure patients, including reducing health plan medical spending by 50 percent, lowering hospital admissions, slowing disease progression, and improving medication adherence and patient satisfaction.
“We are excited to be working with AMC Health and chose to partner with them based on their broad experience in remote patient monitoring and published clinical outcomes,” said Geneia’s Vice President of Consulting Services and Clinical Innovations Shelley Riser, RN, BSN, MSHA. “Together, we’ll be bringing Geneia’s successful @Home remote patient monitoring program to a broader population, including patients with heart failure, diabetes, COPD and asthma.”
Through the partnership, AMC Health will work with Geneia to provide chronically-ill patients with in-home devices to measure biometric status and report daily vitals such as weight, blood pressure, heart rate, glucose levels, and inhaled medication using Bluetooth-enabled devices. Symptom and behavioral information will also be collected to provide a more complete view of patient status. Data will be automatically be transmitted between Geneia’s analytics and care collaboration solution, the Theon® platform, and AMC Health’s CareConsole® clinical platform, to identify emerging health issues or trends that can be mitigated with earlier care team intervention.
“We are excited to be selected by Geneia after its extensive evaluation of the market,” said Nesim Bildirici, founder and CEO of AMC Health. “As Geneia’s partner, we are committed to helping patients be healthier, avoid preventable emergency department visits and improve their quality of health support at home.”
