Medical monitoring program MonitorMe has announced a partnership with recruitment firm and IT outsourcing service provider Harvey Nash/Nash Tech Global for a remote healthcare solution that connects patients at home with clinicians.
Patients are monitored using biometric sensors that measure and track metrics such as blood pressure and heart rate in real-time. MonitorMe’s 24-hour Monitoring Intervention Center (MIC) has physicians on staff that can immediately diagnose patients upon analysis of their metrics, and help them secure the proper medical attention.
The biometric sensors are housed in MonitorMe’s wireless patch that the patients attach to their chest, allowing it to relay their heart rate and rhythm, breathing rate, and oxygen levels. Additionally, using their mobile device or a computer, patients have a constant channel of communication with clinicians.
“Technology innovation has become a critical driver in the determination of healthcare outcomes,” said Anthony J. Bacchi, M.D., Founder of MonitorMe. “The clinical interplay of AI and our technology differentiates us from traditional telemedicine by providing the clinician with a longitudinal picture of a patient’s disease pattern, resulting in the most efficient treatment regimen.”
Remote healthcare solutions aided by biometrics have been growing in popularity over the past few years, though the current COVID-19 crisis has placed a spotlight on their importance in light of the increase it has caused in the number of people who are unable to attend regular medical appointments at hospitals and clinics due to safety measures put into place to mitigate the spread of the virus.
In addition to providing a remote diagnosis, telehealth solutions like MonitorMe allow patients to recover at home under the guidance of medical health experts, and avoid a potentially dangerous trip to a hospital or healthcare facility.
