New solution enables U.S. healthcare providers to rapidly deploy and scale medical-grade remote patient monitoring programs for COVID-19 response
Sept. 22, 2020 — BROOKLYN, NY — Cloud DX, a leading provider of virtual care and remote patient monitoring solutions, today announced the U.S. launch of its updated Connected Health Kit, alongside a new quick-start program enabling health providers and care teams to quickly and cost-effectively expand remote patient monitoring during the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to a recent survey of U.S. healthcare executives by healthcare IT research firm KLAS, remote patient monitoring is a top challenge for healthcare executives, and yet it remains an unsolved problem by 45 percent of those surveyed. The Cloud DX Connected Health Kit enables providers to quickly enroll patients and scale remote patient monitoring programs proven to substantially reduce hospital re-admissions, maintain bed capacity, and improve patient outcomes, while reducing the spread of COVID-19 by keeping people out of hospitals and ERs.
By combining the best of telemedicine with remote vital sign monitoring, patient surveys and smart notifications, the Cloud DX Connected Health Kit allows physicians, clinicians, and care teams to virtually care for patients from hospital to home. The FDA-cleared platform of tools enables medical-grade at-home monitoring of patient vitals including blood pressure, pulse rate, spO2, temperature, weight and glucose, automatically notifies care teams of symptom and condition change, and can trigger next steps such as a telehealth video conference or pre-approved action plans to help patients and families proactively respond to changes in condition. The solution is gaining traction amongst providers for perioperative and post-operative patient monitoring, chronic disease such as COPD and palliative care management and for monitoring COVID-19 patients who have been discharged to home with oxygen.
Cloud DX’s new quick start for COVID-19 solution offers physicians, clinics and hospitals with a fully reimbursable solution optimized to monitor COVID+ patients at home. Priced at $249.00 per patient, the Cloud DX Connected Health Kit for COVID-19 includes:
- Cloud DX mobile app (iOS or Android)
- Cloud DX thermometer and automated temperature tracking
- Cloud DX oximeter and automated O2 saturation tracking
- Automated COVID-19 symptom tracking via daily surveys on the app
- Notifications to the care team if symptoms change
- Access to secure 2-way text & video
- Cloud DX customer support
- Drop shipping directly to the patient
- A 30-day subscription to Cloud DX (per patient)
“Virtual care and remote patient monitoring allows physicians and hospital care teams to efficiently monitor their patients’ critical vitals and condition at home to prevent hospital admission and to ensure adherence to care plans. As health systems in the U.S. continue to bear the weight from surges in COVID-19 infections, our solution helps ease the pressure on providers without any compromise to care,” said Robert Kaul, Cloud DX co-founder and CEO.
