VA facilities throughout the United States already utilize Authentidate's Interactive Voice Response solution and its Electronic House Call vital signs monitoring device along with its web-based application to remotely monitor patients and enhance patient care. HIV is just one of many conditions that can be monitored using Authentidate's telehealth solutions. Telehealth programs are designed to improve overall patient health outcomes, reduce hospital readmissions and emergency hospital or doctor visits and have proven highly effective according to several independent studies.
Aside from remotely monitoring their patients' vital signs, clinicians use Authentidate's telehealth solutions to gather qualitative information about their patients' health, supplement care with in-person visits, and help improve patient compliance with care plans. Clinicians can review their patients' remote monitoring session results securely using Authentidate's web-based application and remotely manage or adjust their patients' care plans, medication reminders and related information. Clinicians can also use the web-based application to provide disease-specific education to their patients in real-time.
A telephone based Interactive Voice Response solution like the one used in the rollout for the VA's HIV patients, is a cost-effective form of telehealth because it does not require a dedicated monitoring device. Since most patients already have a home phone or cell phone and the HIV program doesn't require other peripherals, in most cases there will be no incremental equipment cost for the VA to add a patient to the HIV program. Authentidate is one of two vendors currently authorized to provide Interactive Voice Response health monitoring solutions in the VA's Care Coordination Home Telehealth program.
