Now more than ever, the need for a comprehensive virtual care strategy is critical. For many providers, implementing a comprehensive virtual care strategy provides a swath of opportunities to deliver the right care at the right time through the right channel – in a coordinated manner.
Validic®, has announced the release of HealthBridge, a mobile application for connecting a patient’s personal health data to their health care provider.
The app allows patients to connect their home-use medical device(s) to their provider’s Validic-powered RPM program.
The application provides a foundational element to the Validic Impact RPM technology: the patient experience. This component offers the patient a tool to manage their health devices, personal health data, and involvement in their RPM program – helping patients stay engaged, informed, and consistent in the monitoring of their condition.
Built with Validic’s mobile Software Development Kits (SDKs) as a starting point, HealthBridge offers providers a dedicated app for their patients to track and manage their personal health data for a program of care. Providers can leverage numerous devices and data points to help a patient manage their chronic condition, make data-driven treatment adjustments, and track clinical outcomes and progress.
With the app, program participants can passively collect their physiological health data via Bluetooth devices. As new data is captured on their health device(s), it is automatically uploaded to the app and shared with their provider – allowing care teams to have near real-time visibility into a person’s health status.
If the participant’s reading requires follow up, such as if a blood glucose value is high for several days, an alert will be triggered in the Validic Impact RPM system notifying the clinician, care manager or patient to take further action.
For patients, HealthBridge offers a simple means for passively collecting, viewing, and sharing their home health information with their provider. It also offers the needed dashboards to help a patient see, at-a-glance, how they are doing compared to the program’s goals; how their data trends up, down, or remains flat over time; or how various life-events may have affected a certain day’s results. With this powerful insight, patients can use data to inform their own lifestyle adjustments in partnership with the clinical care team.
