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.
