A heart failure patient has weekly telehealth check-ins scheduled with a clinician but also has a blood pressure monitor and a scale electronically connected to their phone that sends out daily readings to a portal. Conversely, a clinician can set specific guard bands around changes in the patient’s condition and be alerted to a significant change.
For instance, a sudden increase in weight could indicate the patient is retaining fluid, which requires clinical intervention or, worst case, rehospitalization to stabilize the patient. The platform also sets reminders for patients to check in daily or as scheduled.
There is an emerging need for the delivery of mental health services with an increased focus on patient privacy and the need for patient intimacy.
It is essential to create a safe, secure environment where the patient can have virtual one-on-one encounters with a life coach, clinical specialist, or clinical technician and develop a trusting relationship.
This is one area where GlobalLogic has successfully created patient value in the telehealth marketplace.
How GlobalLogic Can Help
GlobalLogic brings extensive experience in building real-time collaboration platforms offered by leading independent software vendors (ISVs), as well as experience establishing secured and responsive communication in constrained environments.
We have developed several telehealth platforms, including sensors and companion apps that integrate with wearable devices. Our telehealth platforms generally require some type of vocal presence with the patient — usually a mobile phone with a SaMD app to collect and deliver patient data.
