Harmonize is an integrated remote care platform designed with patients who are unfamiliar with technology.
Many countries are adopting telemedicine into their healthcare systems. It has proved over the past decade to be an ideal solution for treating patients efficiently while using fewer resources. It has the additional benefit of making healthcare more accessible for immobile or distant patients.
However, most telemedicine solutions are designed for those with specific demographics: those who are comfortable using tech, and healthcare conditions amenable to remote consultations. High-risk patients, especially those in older demographics, have experienced lesser benefits from virtual medical care advancements. Instead, they continue with the traditional methods of appointments.
Harmonize has stepped up to ensure high-risk patients benefit from digital solutions with a fully integrated platform. The platform combines four components for improved patient care every step of the way: remote patient monitoring, chronic care management, interventions, and outcomes optimisation.
Care pathways are flexible to suit the needs of each patient. Biometric sensor kits are customised depending on the needs of the patient. The chronic care management solution uses smart tools, such as insulin optimisation for diabetes, combined with health education and telemedicine communication tools. Interventions handle triage when a patient needs attention, and outcome optimisation gives patients the best chance at a positive outcome with adjustments to current treatment programs when needed.
A key part of what makes Harmonize ideal for high-risk patients is their emphasis on a user-friendly experience. High-risk patients can be of an older demographic that may feel less comfortable using technology. By keeping the patient-facing interfaces as simple as possible, Harmonize ensures they can make the most out of telemedicine.
Harmonize reduces triage requirements by over 90% by using artificial intelligence to quickly ensure patients are connected to the appropriate level of care based promptly on remote monitoring data. That may be medication assistance, in-home support, or attention from their primary care physician. There has been a 61% reduction in hospital admissions and a 43% decline in visits to accident and emergency services.
