Archived: Life Care Solutions Unveils New Version of FDA-Cleared Telehealth Software

Through LifeStream 5.2, healthcare organizations can implement advanced telemedicine programs, improve clinical outcomes and reduce costs

Archived Release
June 20, 2017 – Life Care Solutions announced the launch of LifeStream 5.2, the latest version of its industry-leading, FDA-cleared telehealth software. Building upon a 15-year track record of innovation in delivering digital health technologies for healthcare systems, payers, employers, home health agencies, and patients, the newest version of LifeStream from Life Care Solutions enables clinicians to remotely monitor chronically ill patients, improving their quality of care and clinical outcomes, while reducing healthcare costs.

“The launch of LifeStream 5.2 marks a significant milestone in bringing premier telehealth solutions that address the need to deliver greater value in healthcare at less cost,” said John Bojanowski, President of Life Care Solutions. “Underscoring our commitment to those on the front-lines of healthcare and to creating a more sustainable healthcare system through connected technology, LifeStream 5.2’s enhancements were made with clinicians needs in mind to ensure patient oversight is efficient, clinical outcomes are improved and costly admissions are reduced.”

In the United States, half of the adult population suffers from chronic conditions[1]. These conditions account for seven out of 10 deaths and 75% of all healthcare spending in the country[2]. A chronically ill, aging population, coupled with anticipated healthcare labor shortages[3], is making robust telehealth programs essential for healthcare organizations as the industry moves toward a value-based reimbursement model.

LifeStream software powers the Life Care Solutions suite of telehealth solutions, providing clinicians with an easy, comprehensive telehealth management offering, so they can concentrate on delivering the highest quality of care in a post-acute setting without overly burdening organizational resources and IT staff. The latest version delivers a number of comprehensive clinician-focused enhancements including:

  • A streamlined user interface with more efficient navigation and a mobile platform that is accessible from anywhere with an internet connection
  • An improved patient dashboard that allows clinicians to view expanded patient snapshots, prioritize patient care, respond to vital sign readings, and more efficiently evaluate patient trends
  • Advanced scheduling and reporting features that make it easier for clinicians to manage patient monitoring schedules and delivery timely reports
  • Enhanced default system settings that reduce configuration and deployment time by utilizing important features “out-of-the-box” and an improved user online help system

The LifeStream telehealth solution is FDA-cleared which provides confidence in the data and value of the technology. Clinicians can remotely connect with patients to drive better care. Health system CFOs can reduce costs from hospital readmissions and associated staffing efficiencies. CIOs can connect to large patient populations over long distances without placing an onerous burden on organizational resources and IT staff. And most importantly, patients are empowered to work together with their caregiver to achieve desirable clinical results.“

Telehealth solutions have been very effective in reducing onsite visits, allowing us to connect directly with valued patients in their home, while also improving clinical outcomes,” said Lynnell Hornbeck, manager of home health at MultiCare Health System, a not-for-profit health care organization based in Tacoma, Washington.

Designed for use at a patient’s home for continuous health monitoring, the newest version of the Genesis DM with its enhanced peripherals provides greater access to health information, enhancing efficiency and improving patient outcomes.

“Continuing to expand the peripheral devices supported by our Genesis family of monitors allows us to address the evolving needs of a greater patient population,” said John Bojanowski, President of HomMed. “With these latest peripheral additions, our home health agency customers will be able to address population health management initiatives in a broader context.”

The scale also features wireless functionality, to allow for placement in patient’s homes wherever it is convenient for the patient.

Flexible patient installation and operations

Archived Release — January 18, 2014HomMed, a leader in telehealth and remote patient care, today unveiled the newest version of its wireless remote patient monitor, the Genesis Touch™ 2.1, featuring new one-touch video and larger data plan options.

Providing quick and simple face-to-face interaction between a patient and their healthcare provider, the new one-touch video feature on the Genesis Touch allows patients to simply touch the “Video” button on the tablet’s screen to be linked into a scheduled video conference call with up to 12 other parties.

“Face-to-face communication provides the depth and feel of a traditional doctor’s office visit, all from the comfort of the patient’s own home – and literally with the touch of one button,” said John Bojanowski, president of HomMed.  “Our new one-touch video functionality gives patients and their care providers the ability to interact more expansively, while including up to ten other people in the conversation.”

In addition to the new simplified video capability which is powered by FuzeBox, the industry’s video conferencing leader, HomMed is now offering a 4G cellular communications option for the Genesis Touch.  Customers who want to use the integrated 4G cellular radio can purchase a 2G plan through Honeywell for less than the cost of a traditional data plan.

Though the Genesis Touch operates on a 3G cellular network, and can utilize its integrated Wi-Fi capabilities, the new 4G communications option will enhance the clarity and reduce the latency of the device’s video technology and ensure patients have access to the technology support they need, whether they are at home or on the go.

“The Genesis Touch has always featured integrated Wi-Fi, which can be used to support the video functionality of the device,” said Mr. Bojanowksi.  “The new optional data plans are for patients who do not have Wi-Fi access in their homes, but want to utilize the benefits of one-touch video, or for patients who want to take full advantage of the portability that 4G radio networks provide.”

As with all Genesis personal health devices, the Genesis Touch will be supported on the healthcare provider side by the LifeStream Management Suite, which seamlessly integrates the patient’s device-collected information and other point-of-care applications into a single cloud-based platform, allowing patients, families and healthcare providers easy, secure access to patient information via the Internet.

The new Test Pins program provides the following:

  • Options for temporary or permanent testing environments;
  • Flexible data options with access to preloaded and anonimized data sets that can be used for a 30-90 day timeframe or send data from a real monitor into the system; and
