AMC Health, a telehealth and remote patient monitoring (RPM) technology company, has agreed to provide Gallagher Home Health Services with expanded access to its telehealth solutions.
Gallagher Home Health will use AMC’s telehealth services to assess, monitor and triage patients at-home. The focus is on people who are chronically ill and at high risk due to underlying diseases such as heart failure and diabetes.
AMC Health and Gallagher have worked together since 2014 and the expanded partnership is intended to help combat the Covid-19 pandemic.
Gallagher Home Health and their patients will have access to more of AMC’s telehealth solutions, including new interactive voice response (IVR), pulse oximeter and thermometers for symptomatic patients and/or those diagnosed with the disease.
AMC Health CEO Nesim Bildirici said: “We are excited to build our long-standing relationship with Gallagher and trust they have in us to help reduce the capacity strain on their doctors and nurses as Covid-19 continues to rapidly escalate.
“For several months, we have prepared for this crisis, ensuring greater customisation for our clients and their patients, including provider-patient video capabilities, real-time tools to assess and monitor patient vitals at-home, and a full suite of IVR solutions that meets the needs of Gallagher Home Health.”
AMC’s telehealth platform leverages technology that is designed to deliver fully scalable and customised solutions for monitoring high-risk patients at-home.
Gallagher Home Health Services high risk population health manager Dwain Gahagen said: “Today, in the wake of the Covidcrisis, taking care of our patients is priority one and having the ability to reduce the capacity strain for our clinical teams and staff gives us the needed edge on assessing, managing and mitigating the impact of Covid-19.
“AMC’s telehealth capabilities provides us with the means to stay connected to and interact with our patients, monitoring their daily health, while keeping them at home or determining if they should be seen, directly.”
