– GCH Platform release 2.0 combines remote monitoring with treatment
protocol to facilitate responsible health between individuals and
providers –

PENSACOLA BEACH, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Green Circle Health (GCH) announced the availability of 10 care programs
on its online patient-to-provider communications gateway, the GCH
Platform
, strengthening chronic disease and wellness program
management by incorporating treatment plans and physician-recommended
protocols with the real-time exchange of vitals and health records.

The care programs leverage Bluetooth technology to gather and monitor
daily vital signs from activity trackers and personal medical devices,
while also recording input directly from the user about their daily
conditions. As data is entered, the GCH Platform analyzes the
information against pre-set, user-specific care parameters and generates
reminders for appointments and medications for patients and care givers.
The GCH Platform can recommend remedial actions and also route alerts to
healthcare providers, who can monitor the individual’s progress and
provide timely intervention. The standard care programs encompass:

• Asthma;

       

• Pediatric care;

• Blood pressure;

• Prenatal care;

• Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

• Sickle Cell disease

(COPD);

• Weight management; and

• Congestive Heart Failure (CHF);

• Family wellness.

• Diabetes;

 

Insurers and employers can also use the GCH Platform to create custom
care programs for individuals and employees to monitor vital signs and
activity, track specified goals and offer performance-based rewards to
incentivize behavioral changes and strengthen various wellness programs.

“Care programs are increasingly used to optimize management and outcomes
in chronic conditions such as diabetes, obesity and CHF,” said Sanjay
Parikh, M.D., medical director for Pediatric Cardiology and Children’s
Health Center at St. Vincent Children’s Hospital, Indianapolis and chief
medical officer of GCH. “We envision GCH as a next-generation wellness
and disease management platform that uses remote monitoring with mobile
health to transform the delivery of care for such chronic conditions.
The care programs provided through the GCH Platform assist and empower
individuals, physicians and wellness coaches to take active ownership in
the management of health, which is essential to achieving lifelong
behavioral change and driving down healthcare costs.”

The GCH Platform is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability
Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for
Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act; it also supports every stage
of Meaningful Use.
