HandsFree Health's HIPAA-Compliant Voice Platform Will Be Used For Remote Patient Monitoring

HandsFree | April 16, 2021

HandsFree HealthTM, the provider of WellBe®, a safe, HIPAA-compliant, voice-enabled virtual health assistant app, announced the launch of its Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) Service today. HandsFree Health RPM is a HIPAA-compliant voice-enabled remote patient control experience that doctors, hospitals, health plans, skilled nursing facilities, and case management services can seamlessly incorporate and improve with their current patient programs. Remote patient management services have grown in popularity, allowing for more effective treatment and lowering readmission rates. HandsFree Health's RPM uses speech processing to boost efficiencies and optimize results.

 

"HandsFree Health's voice-enabled technology is a major differentiator in the remote patient monitoring space," HandsFree Health President Dan Messina said. "This enables a level of communication with patients that most programs can not have, while also delivering useful medical data to healthcare professionals."

 

The HandsFree Health product suite, which includes the WellBe smart speaker, smartwatch, and HFH Go smartphone app, offers a personalized treatment experience. Patients can use voice-enabled technologies to access healthcare information, contact their doctor, get wellness responses, and monitor their home environment.

 

"Our mission was to build a virtual environment that is as important to both the patient and the provider as an in-office visit," said HandsFree Health CEO Mike Cardillo. "Our HIPAA-compliant dashboard securely reports patient information in a manner that providers can easily interpret and manage for billing."

 

HandsFree Health's remote patient monitoring system collects health data from hundreds of connected medical devices on a variety of important metrics such as vital signs, blood pressure, pulse rate, blood sugar, weight, blood oxygen levels, peak flow, and more. The custom dashboard simplifies the analysis of sensitive data and the tracking of usage. Our patient portal, which helps healthcare professionals to monitor participation, makes billing simpler.

 

The RPM from HandsFree Health will be available in the late second quarter of 2021.
