Verizon Advances Patient Care With Launch Of Mobile Health Software Solution

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Addressing yet another critical issue faced by the U.S. healthcare system, Verizon Enterprise Solutions today announced the immediate availability of Converged Health Management, a remote patient-monitoring medical platform designed to help clinicians and patients manage patients' health in between doctor visits. 

Verizon's newest solution addresses the day-to-day communications gap that has historically existed between patients and clinicians. These gaps may contribute to patient health problems, decreased care compliance, increased emergency room visits and longer hospital stays.

The Converged Health Management solution enables patients to use biometric devices to take health information such as blood pressure, oxygen saturation levels, glucose levels and weight from home or on the go. Patient data is then automatically transmitted through a wireless connection to a secure server that resides in Verizon's HIPAA-ready cloud for analysis and intervention by the patient's clinician, including a reward system that incents patients to make healthier lifestyle choices. Patients can access this information and find personalized health-enhancing suggestions via the Converged Health Management smartphone app or Web portal. (See video demo.)

(NOTE: Verizon Enterprise Solutions will hold an audio news conference today at 11 a.m. ET to announce the launch of the Converged Health Management solution. The dial-in number is 1-866-617-1526; 1-210-795-0624; 8217773 passcode.)

As part of their health program, patients can take advantage of related health information, including videos and webinars. In addition, patients can connect anonymously with other patients in a secure "social networking" environment, where they can ask questions, and share ideas and experiences.  

Converged Health Management is available for purchase by U.S. health insurance companies, integrated delivery networks, hospitals, and large provider groups and self-funded employers that are looking for ways to monitor at-home care compliance, engage patients in healthier lifestyle choices and reduce hospital readmissions.
