Pensacola Beach, Fla. (PRWEB) October 19, 2016
Green Circle Health (GCH) announced that one of the nation’s largest health insurers has deployed its patient-to-provider communications gateway, the GCH Platform, to monitor key vitals and daily symptoms of members using its sickle cell anemia and diabetes care management programs. These year-long trials are intended to engage a total of 300 patients (150 in each care program), track their participation, measure outcomes and then use the lessons learned to bring benefits to a larger population.
Leveraging the GCH Platform’s flexible infrastructure, which allows physician-recommended treatment protocols to be deployed for chronic conditions, case managers will remotely monitor and record members’ vitals, such as blood glucose level, weight, pain levels and daily activities. Case managers can also pose daily health questions to determine if patients are meeting the requirements of their respective care plan. If a member deviates from a specific range of responses or vitals, inbuilt algorithms and workflows will alert members, their families and case managers, who will then follow-up in real-time and address issues before the condition worsens. The GCH Platform is available anywhere on any phone, PC or tablet and engages patients by providing reminders, coaching, educational literature and rewards to establish and maintain healthy behavior. The platform also coordinates care management for families, encouraging and empowering all family members to play a more active role in the use of remote monitoring and other health services.
“Care management programs are critical to helping care managers and patients manage chronic conditions, such as diabetes and sickle cell. With real-time remote monitoring technology, our platform engages the provider’s members in their own health outcome, improving the overall quality of life,” said Dinesh Sheth, CEO and founder of Green Circle Health. “The GCH Platform’s user-friendly technology provides members with the tools needed to improve adherence to treatment protocol and since it leverages existing devices that patients are already using, the platform removes the need to acquire additional technology. These factors, along with its integrated smart agent, mean that the GCH Platform makes it easier than ever for people to manage their care and make necessary life style changes for improved outcomes.”
The GCH Platform is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA) and other industry standards and was recently announced as a winner in an ONC Consumer Health Data Aggregator Challenge.
