ATLANTA, Ga. (CitizenWire) — ContinuLink, a leader in Web-based home care software has announced that it has entered into a business development relationship with Cardiocom to provide a two way interface between Cardiocom’s Omnivisor Pro software application and the Web-based ContinuLink application. Cardiocom is a developer, manufacturer and clinical service provider of award-winning telehealth solutions.
ContinuLink is the first joint customer to actively implement this dynamic interface tool. Cardiocom’s telehealth system provides a unique opportunity to proactively manage and customize the patient care. Every day patients use the Cardiocom Commander Telehealth System to communicate with a participating telehealth nurse. The Commander Home Telemonitoring System guides the patient through an interactive health check and collection of vital signs including; weight, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and heart rate. This information is immediately available for review via a standard phone line or a cellular transmission to the agency’s telehealth department.
The two way interface allows demographic data to flow from the ContinuLink application once a patient is enrolled in telehealth. In addition, all users of ContinuLink, namely field staff will now to be able to have access to daily transmitted vital sign data, symptomatic information and clinical notes written by the telehealth nurse. The access to this critical data is pertinent because it allows field staff to make better decisions based on previously transmitted information, significantly improving the time it takes to make timely interventions, such as medication adjustments.
“The best way for us to continue to provide outstanding service to our customers is to integrate our software with award-winning companies in the industry,” said Satish Movva, CEO of ContinuLink. “Cardiocom is a leader in helping home care agencies improve their outcomes and increasing clinical efficiencies at the same time.
