Evaware launches new telehealth platform

Software developer, Evaware has launched a new telehealth device, which wirelessly connects with its Project E-vita web-based electronic patient record, enabling clinicians to remotely monitor the vital signs of their home-based patients. The telehealth device uses Bluetooth technology to link with the EPR and set clinical thresholds to monitor. If these thresholds are breached the platform automatically sends alerts to the consultant responsible for the patient. Nick Dyer, managing director of Evaware, said: “Telehealth systems are becoming an essential part of the mix in healthcare services in that they keep constant surveillance on patients with long term illnesses and disabilities. Our telehealth platform benefits patients, health authorities and doctors.” Dyer said: “Patients can be monitored far more frequently and without the need to visit their doctor or hospital; health authorities benefit from reduced admissions costs; and doctors have less patient visits and a more manageable workload.” Consultants are able to configure the platform to meet the needs of each individual patient, as well as ensuring that their vital signs are regularly monitored. Whenever a pre-determined threshold is breached an alert is automatically relayed to the appropriate clinicians by email or text. The interface with Project E-vita EPR also means that the patient can interact with the system using simple on screen Yes or No buttons to describe their symptoms or condition. An Evaware spokesperson said, “Being integrated with a full EPR system gives clinicians the ability to record all other data about a patient’s treatment including visits by healthcare professionals and admissions to hospitals. “The uploading of medical imagery and other documents provides a complete and comprehensive picture of the patient’s history and current condition. The telehealth platform can easily and quickly be reconfigured remotely without the need for on-site support.” Patients are also able to connect appliances such as medical scales, blood pressure monitors, blood glucose meters and ECG machines to the platform using wires or the Bluetooth connectivity, and submit their results to their patient record. The spokesperson added: “The system lends itself to the complexities of multi-provider delivery of healthcare with all activity visible in one unified medical record. Patient clinical encounter history with nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals from multiple agencies can all be recorded in one easy to use browser based patient record.”
