Electronic House Call will be used by Traditional Home Health and Hospice to remotely manage their CHF patient population. The system transmits patient vital signs data on a daily basis through the internet to their patients’ licensed providers, so they can monitor and adjust patient care accordingly.

The complete ExpressMD telehealth solution combines Electronic House Call, an FDA 510(k) market clearance approved, in-home patient vital signs monitoring system with a web application that streamlines the practitioner’s job anywhere they have Internet or a Windows mobile communication device.

Gray-Paul Bossi, president of Traditional Home Health, said: “Our clinical team evaluated all the remote monitoring devices available that specialize in CHF patient management and selected ExpressMD’s Electronic House Call system due to the superior capabilities of both the web-based management and monitoring software and the monitoring devices that comprise the solution. We believe that the Electronic House Call will significantly enhance our ability to manage CHF patient care programs.”

Ronald Mills, managing director of ExpressMD Solutions, said: “ExpressMD Solutions has been selected by Traditional Home Health because of the system’s flexibility to adapt to new disease management models easily and quickly. We recognize the importance of meeting our customer’s needs and are working with other health plans to adopt this flexible and innovative telehealth system for their patients’ disease management programs.”

ExpressMD Solutions is a joint venture formed by Authentidate and EncounterCare Solutions (ECSL) to provide web-based telehealth services and home healthcare equipment dedicated to the advancement of in-home patient health care and improved chronic condition outcomes.
