Personify Care enables pulse oximeter integration with patient management platform
Personify Care has integrated blood oxygen saturation data from iHealth’s wireless pulse oximeters into its patient management software to support remote COVID-19 patient monitoring.
The company noted in a statement that the remote monitoring of blood oxygen saturation levels is a key requirement to enable virtual models of care for COVID-19 patients in home isolation.
Its users in health services can now allow their clinical staff to remotely monitor patients. They can configure alerts based on their own protocols, get notified when reading is beyond a specified threshold, and follow up with patients via secure messaging.
Their patients are then empowered to “seamlessly” send their vital signs data to their care team. Through its platform, patients can also report symptoms, receive instructions on self-health management, and communicate with clinical staff.
“By detecting risks and issues early, the aim is to improve patient health outcomes while reducing the burden on frontline healthcare teams,” the company said.
Personify Care’s platform uses data-driven models to enable the adoption of digital pathways for patients at scale. It mentioned that over the past year, it delivered a 90% patient response rate among 6.4 million patient interactions across healthcare settings in Australia, New Zealand and globally.
