Authentidate offers telehealth solutions designed to remotely monitor patients with a number of chronic conditions. Easy-to-use touch screen monitoring devices or the interactive voice response system send automated reminders which can help increase patients' compliance with care plans, diets, medication schedules and follow-up physician visits. Patients also respond to a series of qualitative questions tailored to their illness, which provides additional input to clinicians. These solutions allow patients to continue with their daily routines while providing for frequent updates of patient data to healthcare providers without a face-to-face visit.
Clinicians use Authentidate's telehealth solutions to remotely monitor and oversee the progress of their patients, reducing costs and allowing for improved patient outcomes. Healthcare staff can make adjustments to care plans on the secure Authentidate telehealth web application. Authentidate's telehealth solutions are designed for patients who require ongoing management of chronic diseases including Chronic Heart Failure (CHF), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Diabetes, Hypertension as well as a number of other patient illnesses, behavioral health conditions and wellness programs.
According to IHS Technology "The global telehealth market is expected to grow by more than a factor of 10 from 2013 to 2018, as medical providers increasingly employ remote communications and monitoring technology to reduce costs and improve the quality of care."
