Care Innovations, a joint venture between Intel and GE, has released its electronic Care Innovations Guide, an application for Windows 7 devices. The product, which facilitates useful communication with between patients and clinicians, received FDA clearance in March.
From the press release:
The Guide is available on consumer devices that use Microsoft Windows 7 operating systems and have a secure digital (SD) card slot and web camera. Device options that may be considered for this novel, FDA-cleared software application include notebooks, tablets, netbooks, desktops, and all-in-one devices. Because of the capabilities built into the product, devices with a touchscreen interface offer a method of interaction that provides an exceptional customer experience. The Guide software will enable these devices to connect to specific models of wired and wireless medical peripheral devices, including blood pressure monitors, glucose meters, pulse oximeters, peak flow meters and weight scales.
The Intel-GE Care Innovations™ Virtual Care Suite, the online interface that allows clinicians to interact with patients and remotely manage care, will continue to support clinician workflow management needs. The interface’s new electronic medical record integration portal allows the Guide-generated health data to synchronize with the existing IT infrastructure of most healthcare organizations.
