Vivify Health, Inc. has been selected to showcase their Remote Care Management Platform in the new Intelligent Medical Home™ (IM Home) within the Intelligent Hospital Pavilion™ at the HIMSS14 Conference in Orlando, FL scheduled for February 23-27. Vivify’s location at the IM Home on the HIMSS floor is “Hall E, Booth 8265, Kiosk 21.” The IM Home will demonstrate the continuum of health and wellness technology and will provide real-time visibility of the recovering patient through remote monitoring, medication management, and communication and alerts, with many clinical use cases. Pavilion visitors will gain a practical overview of how diverse technologies are seamlessly integrated to enhance patient care, optimize workflow and manage healthcare resources across a broad spectrum of healthcare settings — from the hospital itself to the patient’s home.
According to Dr. Alan Snell, Chair Intelligent Medical Home Committee, “We are most pleased to have Vivify Health as our Platinum Sponsor for the debut of the IM Home at HIMSS 2014 in Orlando. Vivify best represents the amazing innovation that is underway in virtual care and the ability to safely treat patients with chronic illnesses in their homes and produce excellent outcomes at a lower cost. Vivify’s unique cloud-based platform and analytic capabilities will certainly capture the attention of the thousands of visitors we are expecting to visit the IM Home exhibit as part of the Intelligent Health Pavilion.”
Vivify’s cloud-based platform – applicable for Providers, ACOs, Payers, and Pharmaceutical organizations – delivers the next generation of direct-to-consumer care, including HD video conferencing. The solution is a pure software platform and is agnostic to the network, consumer electronics and personal health devices. Further, a turnkey clinical call center with a nationwide footprint is available from Vivify for those customers wishing to either supplement or replace their own call centers for monitoring patients, thereby accelerating reach to larger populations.
Vivify’s customers have been virtualizing care with mobile devices since early 2010. Today, Vivify’s customers represent organizations with responsibility for hundreds of acute care and home care sites nationwide. High rates (>95%) of patient adherence and satisfaction among all age groups have accelerated desirable customer outcomes such as 90% reductions in cost of care, 65% reductions in preventable readmissions, and ROI of $2.44 for every $1.00 invested. Vivify’s intuitive user interface and flexible care plan designer are chiefly responsible for these outcomes, ensuring patient engagement initiatives are optimized.
Vivify Health will be joined at the IM Home with two strategic partner organizations, AirStrip® and Monitronics™, whose offerings are optionally integrated with Vivify’s remote care management platform. Both organizations are examples for how Vivify and partners deliver enhanced synergy for improving patient care and clinical efficiency.
AirStrip® is helping to transform the way healthcare is practiced with an innovative mobile solution that enables clinicians to interact with and respond rapidly to clinically relevant patient health information – anywhere, anytime. Their demonstration at the IM Home will focus on this collaborative care, including primary and specialty physicians. Escalation events are delivered from Vivify to the primary or specialty care team using AirStrip ONE™ for rapid physician assessment and intervention. “AirStrip is an industry-leading provider of secure mobile applications that drive clinical transformation, and AirStrip ONE® is the first enterprise-capable, vendor-, platform- and data-source-agnostic clinical mobility solution,” AirStrip CEO Alan Portela said. “Integrated with the Vivify Health remote care management platform, AirStrip ONE delivers an intuitive user experience with live clinical data from the home care setting, which can enable the care coordination team to make faster and more informed decisions, update patient care plans, manage medications, and ultimately improve outcomes.”
Monitronics™ is committed to helping seniors and those with medical conditions feel independent, safe and secure at home. They are a defined leader in home and personal safety monitoring, customized for high risk or geriatric patients, including cameras, security, personal emergency response, motion, smoke, temperature, bed and other sensors. Service is provided by a nationwide call center, utilizing additional information from Vivify to accurately prioritize patient needs. Their use case within the IM Home will reflect the Monitronics medical alert system giving instant access to professional, caring assistance 24/7. "Monitronics' personal emergency alert monitoring gives customers peace of mind knowing they can continue living in the comfort of their own home. One click of their emergency alert device will access quick and dependable emergency response from our award-winning monitoring center," said Frank McGhee, Monitronics' Vice President of Business Development. "We're excited to join Vivify and AirStrip in showcasing the convenience and reliability of remote care management. We offer professional monitoring for security, fire, and personal emergency alerts along with interactive home automation features controlled by the customer from his or her mobile device."

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...
