About this project
The problem we solve: There are over 500 different Wearables and a good number that are FDA approved (FitBit, iHealth, etc.). But we continue to face these problems:
- No Path For Patients to Self-Select and Use Remote Monitoring Tools (Wearables) and physicians to access.
- Unmet Need For Integrated Billing Workflow (how will a Doctor provide remote monitoring for a patient using a Fitbit?)
- Challenge Area For Healthcare Delivery Organizations to adopt Wearables (Doctor and Patients want to use Wearables but lack of a workflow is a barrier)
- How to Provide Better Outcomes based Healthcare using Digital Services? (with more and more Accountable Care Organizations and move to Pay for Performance, outcomes based care needs a Doctor to do remote patient monitoring)
This is a huge problem in the ambulatory (outpatient) setting in our country. This problem exists for Health and nursing homes as well.
About our solution: Our solution, which is ready for use, is an online web-platform with clinical and billing workflow integration for patients and healthcare delivery organizations to use patient data from Wearables. This platform uses machine learning to increase patient engagement. Our solution solves the problem by simplifying decision making for the Doctor and the Patient. The Doctor and Patient collaborative select the choice of Wearables for the Patient with the Patient participating in a remote monitoring Care Plan. Our product is called Connected Health Platform and is complementary to all ambulatory (outpatient) EMRs. Connected Health Platform has a built-in progress note editor for the Doctor to author clinical notes for having provided remote patient monitoring or having performed clinical intervention. Progress to date: Through personal investments, the product - Connected Health Platform is fully ready and fully functional. We have started demonstrating Connected Health Platform to practices. Connected Health Platform comes with Secure Messaging Service and a built-in HIPAA compliant process. The Patient does an electronic HIPAA consent authorizing Connected Health Platform to collect remote patient data that is provided to the Doctor's practice. Additionally, Connected Health Platform is highly secure and is SSL secured as a web-portal. We are seeking pilot practices that are looking to partner with us to pioneer innovation in ambulatory (outpatient) space across the country. Connected Health Platform will offer Wearables for the patients as part of the pilot engagement.

How We Help Education
The future of healthcare is becoming increasingly digital. Physicians in training will need to understand every tool at their disposal to better engage and treat their patients. Remember we are targeting younger physicians and physicians in training follow patients in outpatient ambulatory clinics. There is a strong chance at many clinics students and residents will be setting up the care plan.
How We Help Physicians
Doctors are already time starved. Doctors want to do what they do best, what they are trained for, which is to care for Patients. Doctors want to spend less time on various IT tools or systems and also do not want to be bombarded by the variance of various IT systems. At Connected Health Platform, we have solved this problem because we started designing our system with this as the foremost problem. Connected Health Platform will truly help Doctors by enabling them to be innovation pioneers. Because Connected Health Platform provides a really easy to use web-based solution that is complementary to ambulatory (outpatient) EMRs, Connected Health Platform provides Doctors become change agents.
