Kennedy Health System Selects ExpressMD(TM) Solutions Electronic House(TM) Call For Patients With Congestive Heart Failure

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Feb. 14, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kennedy Health System in southern New Jersey, one of New Jersey's leading health systems and acute-care hospitals, selected the ExpressMD Solutions™ Electronic House Call™ (EHC) remote vital signs monitoring solution as part of a program to reduce hospital readmissions for patients with Congestive Heart Failure (CHF).

"Electronic House Call will allow our clinical team to evaluate the progress of our CHF patients and make proactive decisions that we believe will result in a lower incidence or severity of relapses resulting in fewer hospital readmissions," commented Ms. Kathleen Flannery, Administrator of the Homecare Division at Kennedy Health System. "We expect to see overall improvement in the clinical outcomes for those CHF patients who are remotely monitored in their homes."

The innovative ExpressMD EHC remote patient monitoring solution improves patient care and reduces costs by delivering results to healthcare providers securely via the Web without requiring an in-person physician or hospital visit. The easy-to-use in-home EHC touch screen device delivers better continuity of care to specific patient segments that require regular monitoring of medical conditions. Automated reminders are designed to increase patients' compliance with care plans, diets, medication schedules and follow-up physician visits. The EHC can also be used to deliver disease-specific patient education as needed. Healthcare providers can view each patient's vital statistics and make adjustments to care plans online, which are then communicated to the patient via the EHC device. EHC is well suited for patients who have chronic diseases such as Chronic Heart Failure (CHF), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Diabetes, Hypertension and Sleep Apnea or require wound care management.

"We are pleased that a prominent New Jersey institution like Kennedy Health System has decided to embrace our technology to provide an innovative service to their patients and the communities that they serve. Their use of Electronic House Call in this case will allow CHF patients to return to their homes and enable their caregivers to maintain close clinical supervision of their conditions," said Gavin Stewart, Senior Director of Business Development at Authentidate.
