FitangoCare is a white-label SaaS based solution that makes it easy to launch a customizable and fully branded patient engagement platform. Deployment of the system is fast and simple. It can easily embed into existing IT systems and portals, or it can function as a standalone solution.
By allowing care teams to prescribe actionable and interactive CarePlans™, FitangoCare enables patient care to extend beyond the hospital or doctor's office via telehealth and mHealth access. CarePlans are personalized with condition-specific information and adherence trackers that provide patients with valuable insight into their medical conditions and how best to address them. FitangoCare also empowers patients by providing 24/7 web and mobile access to the actionable information they need to improve their health, without the confusion of traditional verbal and paper-based care instructions. This new process is revolutionizing the way patients receive and interact with their health care.
"Our solution has the potential to streamline and improve the way healthcare is delivered," Fitango's CEO and founder, Dr. Dov Biran stated. "Our goal was to develop an innovative solution that would help patients better understand and take control of their health and treatments while also providing significant value and benefits to healthcare professionals."
Designed to support meaningful use and address health risks in post-acute and chronic care populations, FitangoCare allows care team members, such as discharge planners, nurses and care coordinators, among others, to efficiently monitor patients' adherence levels and vital signs in real time. FitangoCare also connects patients to their social support network and care team members, which enhances feelings of support and streamlines communication, significantly improving adherence and health outcomes.
"We are excited to share our telehealth innovation with the ATA conference attendees, and we look forward to working with our early adopters to ensure a flawless and ever-evolving solution," Dr. Biran said. "We want to ensure FitangoCare will most effectively benefit healthcare professionals and most importantly, the 130 million Americans affected by chronic diseases and behavior related conditions."
