Date:7/6/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, July 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Focused Health Solutions, a premier provider of employer based population health management services, announced that it has entered into a business relationship with Cardiocom(R) to provide advanced home telehealth technology to patients with chronic illness. Cardiocom, the Experts in Telehealth(SM), is a world class developer, manufacturer and clinical service provider of award-winning telehealth solutions.

Cardiocom's telehealth system provides an interactive opportunity to proactively manage and motivate the member towards self care. The Commander Home Telemonitoring System guides the participant through an interactive Health Check and collection of vital signs including: weight, blood pressure, glucose, and heart rate. This information is immediately transmitted via a standard phone line or cellular communication to the participant's nurse coach at Focused Health Solutions Deerfield, IL based clinical nurse call center. The participant's nurse coach reviews the information with the participant during their scheduled condition management education calls throughout the year. Focused Health Solution's tailored disease management program is available to all members who qualify as an option to their health coverage with their employer.

"The Cardiocom System is a key advanced home care technology tool that proactively ensures coordinated care," says Charlene Bonvissuto, a registered nurse and President and Chief Executive Officer at Focused Health. "We believe that cost-effective monitoring of vital signs, symptoms and compliance with evidence-based guidelines is a fundamental tool in the condition management process." Cardiocom's unique system is also expected to enhance participant engagement, increase quality of life, and improve outcomes.
