Keena Healthcare Technology, a healthcare optimization organization, and Altera Digital Health, a global health IT leader, announce today that they have engaged in a reseller agreement. The expanded sales collaboration deal is an extension of the partnership and developer agreement Keena has had with Altera’s TouchWorks® EHR business unit since 2008.
Keena has had several years of successful selling into Altera’s TouchWorks EHR client base of provider practices and has consistently prioritized its strategic focus on developing new technologies and services needed to optimize their clinical and financial performance. In parallel, Keena has looked to maintain a select group of trusted strategic partnerships with industry leaders and best of breed niche technology vendors to efficiently extend their sales reach into select segments of the marketplace.
said Craig Luce, Founding Partner of Keena Healthcare Technology.
We are very optimistic about our expanded relationship with Altera and the opportunity to work closely with their client success and client development teams. There is both a strategic and cultural fit between our two organizations that we feel will be of significant benefit to the TouchWorks EHR client base, while at the same time fulfilling a common high priority initiative for Keena and Altera.

Emory Healthcare has collaborated with Andor Health to mitigate the risks of patient falls and address other safety concerns within the hospital setting while implementing virtual patient observer technology within its healthcare facilities.
Andor Health, the creator of ThinkAndor, will employ generative AI technology to access data from various systems, including ambient listening and real-time visualization, to identify common safety risks such as falls and self-harm. In addition, Emory Healthcare will commence a pilot program for the virtual sitter technology in November at two of its hospitals. This program will involve the remote monitoring of at-risk patients on medical and surgical floors, as well as in the emergency departments.
Jason Atkins, RN, Vice President and Chief Clinical Informatics Officer for Emory Digital, a part of Emory Healthcare, says.

Andor Health's virtual observers collaborate with registered nurses stationed in a control center to employ voice-activated technology to engage in remote conversations with at-risk patients. These interactions involve reminding patients to remain in their beds, prompting them to seek assistance, or offering relevant guidance.
Raj Toleti, Chairman and CEO of Andor Health, emphasized that recent technological advancements, such as generative AI-based virtual sitting and ambient monitoring, offer promising opportunities to alleviate operational challenges, mitigate staff shortages, and reduce costs. These innovations enable healthcare systems to concentrate on providing high-quality patient care. Healthcare organizations like Emory Healthcare can efficiently monitor patients and optimize staff effectiveness through large-scale virtual sitting, harnessing the capabilities of virtual hospitals as supplementary support.
