LUMEDX HealthView CVIS Partners with Ally® Connected Care to Power for Discharged Patient Follow-up
OAKLAND, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
LUMEDX Corporation, a leading provider of cloud-based cardiovascular
information systems (CVIS), and Continuity Health Solutions, maker of
Ally® Connected Care and other outpatient disease management software,
announced today that they have partnered to offer healthcare providers
an integrated, longitudinal record for heart failure populations across
the inpatient and post-acute care environments. Leveraging Ally®
Connected Care platform embedded into LUMEDX's HealthView CVIS, patients
can perform daily, personalized self-assessments consisting of
biometrics, medication compliance, education and questions that are
automatically transmitted to their electronic health record.
The new solution will be unveiled at the American Association of Heart
Failure Nurses Annual Conference, LUMEDX Booth 106, in Los Angeles, June
"We are extremely excited about this relationship with LUMEDX and the
unique opportunity it offers to extend the use case of telemonitoring
into the workspace of cardiology care. A seamless, up-to-date view of
the patient condition is a powerful tool for cardiology care teams.
Integrating Ally® with HealthView cloud applications will enable
caregivers to determine the best course of action for optimal care
delivery if and when they have a patient present to an Emergency Room,"
said CEO of Continuity Health Solutions, Bryan Poteet. "Our customers'
goals are to prevent readmission across the big three disease
types-COPD, Diabetes and Heart Failure-through proactive management but
circumstances will arise where patients present to the facility, and
when they do the care team needs the best information to make an
informed decision about which care pathway to pursue."
The HealthView-Ally® Connected Care alliance delivers:
A seamless, integrated inpatient and outpatient cardiology record that
helps providers reduce heart failure readmissions
A flexible, scalable solution, allowing providers to tailor the
technology to meet the unique requirements of their workflow and
The ability to integrate data from patient populations byond Heart
Failure such as Diabetes and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Complete, up-to-date patient information enabling appropriate, fully
informed treatment decisions in the event a patient presents in the
E.D.; patients can be sent to clinic rather than admitted
Meaningful analytics to support improved clinical and business outcomes
"Today's healthcare organizations are looking for creative ways to
offset regulatory pressures for quality and readmissions, while keeping
the patient engaged in the care cycle," said LUMEDX Vice President of
Strategic Products, Praveen Lobo. "We at LUMEDX have been working to
deliver innovative solutions to help our clients manage these pressures."
"Connecting the inpatient HealthView cardiology record to the Ally®
Connected Care platform offers cardiac care teams a way to engage their
patients in a convenient self-management regimen while also providing
caregivers with more easily accessible, comprehensive patient
information," said Lobo. "We believe that this combination of patient
self-management and more fully integrated patient information will help
hospitals better manage readmissions. We chose Continuity Health
Solutions as a partner in this endeavor because they offer flexibility
in their business and technology approach to meet the dynamics of
today's healthcare environment."
Ally® Connected Care offers patients the opportunity to take an active
role in their care regimen through an FDA-approved home appliance, an
easy-to-understand automated call, or a voice-guided, browser-dependent
web portal, allowing providers who are closest to the patient to
determine which method of participation yields the highest compliance.
LUMEDX's HealthView platform is a cloud-based CVIS delivering a full
suite of cardiology workflow solutions, integration tools, registries,
services, and analytics.
