ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- To address the current reactive approaches to treating chronic and post-acute care conditions, SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) is launching a new solution. The SAP® Collaborative E-Care Management application connects patients, care providers and their families through medical monitoring software and mobile devices to better manage their health with individualized treatment plans and educational content. The announcement was made at HIMSS11, being held in Orlando, Florida, February 20-24, 2011.
Together with its partner ecosystem, SAP wants to improve the way that care providers manage patients while they are outside of the healthcare system and active in the community. For example, SAP and its partners are integrating glucometers into the SAP solution. As the devices capture clinical data, alerts can be generated in real time to patients via text message or e-mail to prompt them to take the necessary actions. Care providers can also be alerted to patient-specific criteria, such as when a patient's glucose crosses a predetermined level.
With the SAP technology, patients will be able to use mobile devices to track their health status, interact with care providers and monitor how they are progressing on an individualized care plan developed with their care provider. Patients can also take targeted "e-classes" to learn how to better manage their health.
