HealthSaaS Inc. with iMPak Health and Meridian Health Announce Integrated Pain Management and Medication Adherence Solution
Date:1/10/2012

PORTLAND, Ore. and NEPTUNE, N.J., Jan. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The iMPak Health Journal for Pain empowers patients to easily record their pain levels before and after their prescribed medication regimen, providing physicians with readily available, useful, patient information.  The Health Journal for Pain provides a consumer engaged method for date and time stamp pain levels and the impact of both long-acting and short medications not readily seen before.

About the size of a smart phone or credit card, iMPak Health products are daily journal device cards that capture health-related data and transmit the information wirelessly using a Near Field Communications (NFC) reader.

Using the HealthSaaS Connected Outcomes Platform patient data will be securely transmitted from a patient's home to health care providers. Physician-requested data can be viewed within graphical reports using HealthSaaS white-labeled provider portals and optionally into backend Electronic Health Record systems (EHRs). Data can also be viewed by patients, family members and caregivers using HealthSaaS patient portals.

"It is widely held that pain is considered the fifth vital sign. The pain journal not only helps track daily pain levels, but is a easy and powerful tool for determining a specific patient's response to their medication regimen," said Sandra Elliott Director of Consumer Technology and Service Development at Meridian Health, a not for profit health system in New Jersey that helped to create iMPak Health.

Frank Ille, CEO, of HealthSaaS said, "We are excited to announce this innovative alliance with iMPak because of the impact that it can make for elderly patients or others that are uncomfortable with computers, or who cannot afford expensive technology. Our collaboration with iMPak focusing on consistent monitoring of pain and medication adherence is an important aspect of any chronic pain management plan. This integrated solution can help improve clinical outcomes, reduce ER visits associated with over/under medicating and will decrease the overall costs associated with managing chronic pain."

"It is clear that both companies share a commitment to making it easy for the patient to engage in their own care," said Albert Baker Director at iMPak Health and VP of Strategic Relations at Cypak a Swedish based technology company that helped create iMPak Health. "A excellent patient experience is fundamental to providing excellent data for a effective outcome focused care system at large."
