Cloud-based technology platform will connect patient-generated data from digital health applications, clinical devices and wearables
ROCKVILLE, MARYLAND- (PR Web) NOVEMBER 01, 2016
To continue its goal of furthering patient engagement, Get Real Health is partnering with Validic to bring patient-generated health data from clinical devices, fitness wearables and digital health applications into its patient engagement products, InstantPHR® and CHBase™. Get Real Health will leverage Validic’s industry leading cloud-based digital health platform to provide healthcare organizations with Validic’s one-to-many connection to over 350 digital health technologies. This will enable organizations to better coordinate care, improve patient engagement and manage their patient populations.
“Providers need to fill the gaps in their clinical records with data from patients’ apps and devices,” said Get Real Health President and Founding Partner Robin Wiener. “By integrating with Validic, our platform becomes even more powerful by allowing patients and providers to take a more active role in recognizing behaviors and taking measures to prevent costly acute problems before they start.”
As healthcare continues to move to the value-based delivery model, patient-generated data becomes an essential component in efficiently managing the health of large populations. Get Real Health and Validic help healthcare providers monitor patients in between visits and gain insight into patients’ health risk factors, allowing for more accountable care delivery. Using Get Real Health’s Validic-enhanced platform, healthcare organizations will be able to integrate clinical, fitness, wellness and nutritional data directly into the patient’s personal health portal. This data can then flow back into the provider portal and electronic medical record, giving nurses and physicians visibility to the patient’s health on a daily basis.
For example, thanks to Validic’s VitalSnap™ technology, a patient can use her favorite non-connected glucometer or blood pressure cuff, then simply capture the device’s reading through the camera on her smartphone. Validic then sends the data directly into the patient’s Get Real Health-powered portal, where it can be shared with her doctor. This enhanced functionality Validic offers with VitalSnap differentiates it from its competitors by freeing patients to use their legacy devices.
“Validic and Get Real Health understand the direction and momentum of the connected health market. Our joint mission is to empower the market with solutions that enable providers to better manage and treat their patient populations,” Drew Schiller CEO and Co-founder of Validic said. “It’s great to have Get Real Health a part of our client ecosystem. Pushing for a greater focus on outcomes and experience, our collaboration helps put the patient at the forefront of the healthcare system.”
Thanks to the Get Real Health/Validic partnership, clients will be able to access actionable patient data through one easy connection that offers the 360-degree view essential for value-based healthcare.
