Converged Health Management is available for purchase by U.S. health insurance companies, integrated delivery networks, hospitals, and large provider groups and self-funded employers that are looking for ways to monitor at-home care compliance, engage patients in healthier lifestyle choices and reduce hospital readmissions.
"Patient outcomes are often the result of what individuals do when they are away from their care providers," said Dr. Peter Tippett, chief medical officer and vice president, Verizon Innovation Incubator. "With this solution, Verizon is helping to transform how healthcare is delivered in the U.S. by increasing patient engagement and empowering patients to better manage their own health."
The launch of Converged Health Management marks another milestone in Verizon's corporate strategy to deliver converged solutions that leverage the company's extensive mobility, cloud and security assets to address big societal challenges.
John Stratton, president, Verizon Enterprise Solutions, said: "More than one-sixth of the U.S. economy is devoted to healthcare spending, and as the industry drives to deliver better care, managing costs is a key focus. Converged Health Management is a perfect example of how we are using our unique combination of assets like our 4G LTE wireless network and cloud infrastructure to deliver an innovative, cost-effective and game-changing solution to the marketplace."
This announcement follows the company's Aug. 8 U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance release.
