Authentidate To Introduce Additional Next Generation Telehealth Solutions

Stocks in this article: ADAT

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Jan. 23, 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 plans to introduce a mobile telehealth tablet and a telehealth software application (App) designed to address the needs of the growing mobile telehealth markets. The company estimates that the market for remote patient monitoring solutions will grow to approximately $7 billion this year due to the impact of new programs designed to reduce patient care costs and the high hospital readmission rate of patients with chronic illnesses.

"Our new mobile telehealth tablet and our telehealth App for user-supplied tablets or smart phones are both exciting new products that are designed to address the needs of mobility in the telehealth marketplace. Mobile patients (patients that are not home-bound) represent a rapidly growing segment of the patient population that can benefit from a remote patient monitoring program. Patients will be able to use the telehealth tablet or install the telehealth App on their own mobile device.

"These new telehealth products will complement our present offerings, and provide for a broader range of price points and patient segments that can benefit from telehealth. The ease of adapting these next generation products to existing standard interfaces in tablets and smart phones should also make them more readily available to international markets. These new products are consistent with efforts to reduce the cost of healthcare and are aligned with Federal government efforts to broaden reimbursements for Telemedicine. The commercial availability of these new mobile telehealth products is scheduled for launch in February 2013, following the completion of our testing and quality assurance procedures," said Gavin Stewart, Vice President of Business Development at Authentidate.

Some of the advantages of Authentidate's new mobile telehealth products are:

  • Smaller and Lighter for Patient Mobility
  • Built-in Bluetooth Connectivity for Vital Sign Peripherals
  • Built-In Cellular Data Communications
  • Built-In Live Video and Audio Chat Capabilities

All Authentidate telehealth products and services are designed to reduce hospital readmissions and emergency visits by keeping patients with chronic illnesses on their care plans, managed and monitored by their healthcare providers. These new products communicate automatically with Authentidate's robust web-based telehealth management software application.
