Telehealth Solutions from American TeleCare, Inc. Support Heart Failure Management Study in Canada
Date:10/28/2008

of STARTEL in Nova Scotia.

"ATI is dedicated to supporting re-designed care processes that transform medical care by placing patients at the center of care teams that establish continuous healing relationships," said Randall Moore, M.D., M.B.A., chairman and chief executive officer, American TeleCare (ATI). "STARTEL is a model of care that overcomes geographic and organizational barriers to accessing clinical expertise, connects heart failure patients with clinicians, applies evidence-based care plans, and keeps patients' primary care physicians involved."

ATI's InLife Patient Stations are compact, easy-to-use monitors that gather information from questions that patients answer as well as objective clinical data from integrated medical peripherals (including blood pressure monitors and ATI's patented CareTone® Telephonic Stethoscopes). LifeView combines remote patient monitoring with interactive video for televisits. Care teams use LifeView Provider Stations to connect to Patient Stations, manage ongoing monitoring, conduct televisits, and carry out care plans.

STARTEL is evaluating a home telehealth care management system designed to enhance clinical care for heart failure patients who have difficulty with access to care. Unique in this model is that in addition to the use of protocol-driven, evidence-based interventions, primary care physicians are directly involved in the follow-up of patients. Telehealth-supported delivery of care to heart failure patients in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick is being compared to the current gold standard of care, which is care at a heart failure or heart function clinic.

After an initial assessment, patients are randomized to either a control treatment arm, where they continue to receive their heart failure care as per their normal routine, or to the home telehealth arm. Patients receiving home telehealth are further randomized into one of two telehealth treatment groups.
