BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., April 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Authentidate Holding Corp. (Nasdaq:ADAT), a provider of secure web-based software applications and telehealth products and services for healthcare organizations, today announced that Canton-Potsdam Hospital of Potsdam, New York (CPH) has selected Authentidate's InscrybeMD® Telehealth solution to support their remote patient monitoring needs for its growing community care network. CPH intends to enroll select patients on Authentidate's innovative telehealth platform to improve patient outcomes and reduce hospital readmissions.
"The InscrybeMD Telehealth solution is a good fit for our emerging community care network model and enables remote patient monitoring by our clinical staff. We expect that this program will empower our clinicians to drive improved health outcomes, reduce readmissions and maintain better continuity of care for our patients," commented Patty Delosh, Disease Management Specialist at CPH.
InscrybeMD Telehealth solution delivers remote patient monitoring, allowing patients to continue with their daily routines while providing for frequent updates of patient data to healthcare providers and reducing the need for face-to-face visits. Session results from patients selected for this program will continue to be monitored by CPH clinicians through the InscrybeMD Telehealth Website, helping the hospital to reduce costs and support improved patient health outcomes. Initially, the telehealth solution will be used for patients who require ongoing management of chronic diseases such as Chronic Heart Failure (CHF), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Diabetes and Hypertension. InscrybeMD Telehealth solutions can also be used for a number of other patient illnesses, behavioral health conditions and wellness programs.
The easy-to-use InscrybeMD Telehealth solution's touch screen device delivers seamless continuity of care to specific patient segments that require regular monitoring of medical conditions. Automated reminders increase patients' compliance with care plans, diets, medication schedules and follow-up physician visits. Healthcare providers view each patient's vital statistics and make adjustments to care plans on the secure InscrybeMD web application, which is then communicated to the patient during scheduled sessions. While improving medical condition monitoring, the InscrybeMD Telehealth solution also provides patients with disease management education that their clinician selects for them and helps patients to comply with their care plans.
"We welcome Canton-Potsdam Hospital to our growing InscrybeMD community of commercial healthcare organizations who are taking an active role in extending their clinical services to their patients beyond the acute-care setting," said Marcus Wagstaff, Sales Director at Authentidate.
