BUFFALO, N.Y., Dec. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Advantage Home Telehealth (ADHT) announced today that it has established an Affiliate Program to rapidly expand the deployment of the company's state-of-the-art mobile telehealth program. The Affiliate Program is open to insurance companies, physician groups, hospitals, clinics, visiting nurse associations, and other health care providers interested in improving the quality and cost-effectiveness of their service to chronically ill, in-home patients. The ADHT system employs cutting edge wireless (non-tethered) and automated equipment for vital sign measurement, medication compliance, and general health condition data collection coupled with an around-the-clock clinical monitoring service. By simplifying the approach to home health care while expanding the ease with which information can be gathered, relayed, assessed, and communicated to health care professionals, the ADHT system gives patients greater confidence in the quality of their health care and positively reinforces their positive behaviors. ADHT's experience with patients around the United States has shown that dramatic reductions in unscheduled hospital, emergency room, and doctors office visits is achieved -- saving everyone time and money.
Brian Egan, ADHT's founder and CEO, said: "We are very pleased with the interest we have received from organizations around the country in our approach. We believe that the combination of our advanced home telehealth approach with committed professionals as affiliates will lead to the greatest impact on quality of patient care combined with significant reduction in expenses. We have already begun to establish affiliate arrangements with physician groups in several states and look forward to achieving complete coverage throughout the United States with this approach."
ADHT Affiliates will have access to the company's proprietary software, Web portal, and Bluetooth enabled medical monitoring equipment that works on a Smart Phone or Touch Tablet for use by patients suffering from chronic conditions that can be monitored and treated at home such as diabetes, obesity, congestive heart disease, and others. ADHT staff will install and train patients on the proper use of the hardware and, following installation, measure blood pressure, blood oxygen levels, weight, blood glucose, and medication compliance. Additional monitoring capabilities are planned to be introduced in 2012. All data is collected automatically without wires or tethered cables and transmitted in real time, securely to a portal which is monitored 24/7 by medical personnel. In addition, the ADHT technology offers expanded capabilities for dietary recommendations, exercise program monitoring, video conferencing and other proactive healthy lifestyle programs.
Based in Buffalo, NY, ADHT's mission is to become a leading provider of telehealth and telemedicine applications and services. The company's ultimate goal is to improve the quality of health for people with chronic health conditions and to keep people healthy.
