BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Jan. 31, 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 has completed the integration and required testing of the interface between its Electronic House Call (EHC) and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) telehealth solutions and the Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) VistA Electronic Health Records system. The VA has approved the integration of both solutions with the VistA system which is expected to enable the VA to reduce the time for patient enrollment on Authentidate's EHC and IVR solutions as well as the flow of patient data back to the VistA system. Sunil Hazaray, Chief Commercial Officer at Authentidate said, "This is another important development for our VA telehealth project as we work closely with the VA to meet their needs. The new interface to VistA is designed to make it faster and easier for Clinicians to enroll patients, manage patient care plans and get patient results back into the VistA electronic medical records system. We have also received approval for a number of new Disease Management Protocols (DMPs) over the past few months for both our EHC and IVR solutions which continues to make our solutions available to a larger patient population at the VA. We believe the new interface and DMPs will help us to accelerate the adoption of our EHC and IVR solutions throughout the VA and we remain committed to providing the best possible solutions for our veterans." Authentidate is an approved vendor for the EHC and IVR telehealth solutions in the VA's national home telehealth program. VA clinicians use Authentidate's telehealth solutions to remotely monitor their patients' vital signs and gather qualitative information about their patients' health to supplement in-person visits and help improve patient compliance with their care plans.
