NAVCARE ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH ANELTO HEALTH
Presenting My Sophi ™ at ATA19 in NOLA
AUGUSTA, Ga., (April 12, 2019) - NavCare, the care management division of US CareNet, today announced their partnership with Anelto Health, a leading provider of remote patient monitoring technology. The partnership allows the integration of Anelto Health’s alert monitoring and telehealth technologies into the NavCare care management platform,) enhancing care management services for patients with chronic conditions.
“For many years, our parent company, through its home health agencies, has provided telehealth services and has been providing care management services to seniors for more than 30 years,” said Debora Fisher, RN, BSN, MHA, Chief Operating Officer for NavCare. “We have learned that telehealth is vital for patient care but must include care coordination and patient centric strategies to ensure maximum health benefit. We understand the importance of connecting with patients in-between their physician office visits. We have care management experience and understand the importance of monitoring vitals daily for avoidance of re-hospitalizations and emergency department visits. Our decision to partner with Anelto Health was based on many factors. Their secure closed RPM system, having the two-way cellular hub with Voice-Centric communication medium for direct communication with our patients, its ease of use and the fact that patients don’t need Internet or a landline to use the equipment, all were significant factors in our decision to partner with Anelto Health.”
NavCare held RPM pilot tests utilizing the Anelto Health technology with patients and physicians over the course of four months in 2018 as an opportunity to document and support the benefits of adding RPM to other care management services. RPM Pilot Study
“We are very pleased with our partnership with NavCare and their total commitment to their doctors and their patients,” says David Fronk, Senior Vice President of Anelto Health. From the very beginning of our business partnership, I saw the great company we were working with by NavCare’s attention to details, unwavering commitment to quality, was always focused on giving the best care and chronic disease management for their patients. Not to mention, the smooth operations for their physicians. This just proved to me we would have a winning combination when using NavCare’s Care Management with Anelto Health’s RPM Platform together to drive better clinical outcomes while creating happy patients with a better quality of life.”
NavCare is displaying the new RPM solution, now branded for NavCare clients as My Sophi™, in the Anelto Health booth at the American Telemedicine Association conference and expo (ATA19) in New Orleans, April 14 - 16.
NavCare intends to test a retail version of My Sophi™ in the Augusta, Georgia market this Spring, in anticipation of a nationwide launch later this year.
