Kainos Evolve's integrated care platform is expected to enhance InTouch's next generation telehealth patient management solutions to offer low cost service to the patients.

KNOS's association as an Apple mobility partner will offer Intouch's customer a mobile access to clinical information at the point of care.

InTouch Health chairman and CEO Yulun Wang said: "The flexibility and power of the Evolve platform, combined with the breadth of the InTouch Health customer base and solution offerings, has the potential to make a significant impact on the care of patients across the United States and beyond."

The Evolve platform will be leveraged to support health applications in large integrated delivery networks allowing InTouch Health to offer applications tailored to the patient's needs which can be integrated with hospital electronic health record systems.

The platform features eForms and workflow tools, which allow the customisation of the applications in accordance to the requirements of individual healthcare units.
