American TeleCare, Inc. (ATI) Renews Agreements for its Telehealth Solutions with the Veterans Health Administration
Date:3/11/2009

Government Agencies Can Purchase ATI's Technology-Enabled Telehealth Solutions and Services on the GSA Online Ordering System

Minneapolis (PRWEB) March 11, 2009 -- American TeleCare, Inc. (ATI), leader in the development and application of telehealth monitoring and messaging, announced that its solutions and services remain available to government agencies under new contracts with the Veterans Health Administration (VHA). With a renewable one-year Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) and a new five-year Federal Service Schedule (FSS), ATI continues to work with the VHA.

"We have provided telehealth solutions to the Veterans Health Administration since 1999," said Randy Moore, M.D., M.B.A., chairman and chief executive officer, American TeleCare, Inc. (ATI). "ATI can continue to do so, and to support other federal agencies' telemedicine programs as well, through December 2013."

As part of the new agreements, including preferred pricing for any U.S. federal agency on a Federal Service Schedule (FSS), ATI solutions and services are now available via GSA Advantage!® The General Service Administration's one-stop, online shopping resource, GSA Advantage allows any U.S. federal agency anywhere in the world to find, compare and purchase products and services, including information technology (IT) and medical equipment. The program simplifies purchasing and ensures that government customers receive GSA-awarded prices from GSA-approved companies. In addition, state and local government entities may now use GSA Advantage under both the Cooperative Purchasing Program and the Disaster Recovery Purchasing Program.

ATI's inLife™ system features compact, easy-to-use Patient Stations that gather information from health status questions that patients answer as well as objective clinical data from integrated medical peripherals (including blood pressure monitors and blood glucose meters). Narrated instructions with answer verification complement multi-media instructions and guide patients through their telehealth tasks. Individualized patient education and self-care instruction are integrated within the flow of patients' tasks. A dashboard display presented on the system's Provider Stations color-codes summaries of each patient's current health risk status. Clinicians can set specific thresholds for each patient to red flag significant changes in a patient's condition and can access the details of monitored physiological data and patient-reported information.

ATI's LifeView™ system combines remote patient monitoring and messaging with interactive video and electronic stethoscope options for televisits. With LifeView, providers can further assess patients at home and intervene with timely medical care.
