Wireless Remote Patient Monitoring Device Gives Patients Mobility -- and Connection to Healthcare Providers
Honeywell HomMed, a global leader in telehealth and remote patient care, recently unveiled the newest version of its wireless remote patient monitor – the Genesis Touch™ 3.0 – featuring more peripheral device options as well as a new “Emphasis on Education” initiative, which provides expansive educational content for device users.
Designed to empower patients through access to disease-specific information, the new version of the Genesis Touch features a full suite of educational content to support the user’s self-guided education –at the touch of a button. The library of content available includes questions and information specific to diseases such as diabetes and chronic heart failure (CHF), as well as more general topics such as diet, pain management, medications and exercise.
"Industry data supports what healthcare providers tell us every day – patients with access to condition-specific information outside the hospital or their doctor’s office have higher rates of compliance and satisfaction, as well as more successful health outcomes," said John Bojanowski, president of Honeywell HomMed. "The new educational content provided by the Genesis Touch gives patients access to questions and information specifically provided for them by their own healthcare provider, as well as a full library of additional information – right at their fingertips."
In addition to the new educational content, the Genesis Touch 3.0 features an expanded range of supported peripheral devices to address the needs of patients with a variety of risk factors and specialized monitoring requirements. New peripherals include two new Bluetooth pulse oximeter options, as well as one new Bluetooth scale.
“With the new features available, as well as its existing offerings such as one-touch video, the Genesis Touch continues to provide an easy-to-use platform for enhanced patient engagement across the care continuum,” said Mr. Bojanowksi.
The Genesis Touch’s product offering also includes the following:
As with all Genesis personal health devices, the Genesis Touch will be supported on the healthcare provider side by the LifeStream Management Suite, which seamlessly integrates the patient’s device-collected information and other point-of-care applications into a single cloud-based platform, allowing patients, families and healthcare providers easy, secure access to patient information via the Internet.
