Audiopoint Adds Voice to Healthcare Reform Debate
Date:9/1/2009

BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Audiopoint, a leading provider of innovative voice data solutions, today announced the availability of NotifierRx(R), its new suite of automated patient management services. NotifierRx will help hospitals improve standards of care and reduce expensive patient readmissions by automating outpatient follow-up with interactive voice-controlled services.

NotifierRx facilitates on-going communication and follow-up with patients on a pre-defined, automated schedule. Using NotifierRx, patients receive a series of personalized reminders and queries, and simply provide spoken responses. These responses are automatically captured via Audiopoint's Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) technology. NotifierRx makes it easy for patients to provide timely information while enabling hospital staff to monitor important measures of the recovery process.

"No matter which side of the healthcare reform debate you're on, there's no argument that improving standards of care and reducing patient readmissions is good for everyone," observed Brian Lichorowic, CEO of Audiopoint. "We developed NotifierRx to help hospitals improve standards of care and manage increased patient load by extending close patient monitoring in the critical recovery period post-discharge. This not only improves the overall experience for patients, but greatly reduces costs by minimizing patient readmissions."

About NotifierRx

NotifierRx is an interactive Internet-based solution that uses ASR technology to turn any telephone -- cell or landline -- into a virtual computer terminal for electronic health record systems. It provides a voice response interface for delivering patient education, posing post-treatment follow-up questions and capturing the patient's verbal responses. Patients' responses are integrated with their medical records to increase accountability for the hospital.

"With NotifierRx, medical personnel can rapidly spot problems with patient compliance, triggering additional patient recommendations, notifications of assessment updates, and even automatic scheduling and rescheduling if a patient is not recovering as expected," added Lichorowic. "Because it provides real-time insight into patient status, NotifierRx can also alert medical personnel immediately if a patient should need to be readmitted to avert a medical emergency."

NotifierRx tracks relevant patient data and displays it in a variety of ways, including via sustained readings, alerts and thresholds. It can also screen patient populations for individuals who would benefit from an intervention or need special follow-up.

NotifierRx requires no special hardware or equipment; it's readily accessible to anyone with a telephone. This makes it ideal for improving outpatient monitoring to improve care and reduce hospital readmissions, as well as perfectly suited for other medical monitoring applications, such as supporting post-market studies for drug research, disabled veteran support programs and ensuring that people with chronic diseases adhere to prescribed regimens.

NotifierRx runs on a strictly controlled private and secure framework to protect hospital and patient confidentiality.
