LAS VEGAS, May 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at HLTH, Veta Health, the digital health platform that paints a more complete picture of a patient's care journey, announces the expansion of its current engagement with Nicklaus Children's Health System (NCHS) in Miami, into five of their clinical departments.
"We are incredibly pleased that NCHS experienced and recognized the value of the Veta Health solution and the transparency it provides to clinicians managing complex and high-risk patients," said Tanvi Vattikuti Abbhi, co-founder of Veta Health. "Our relationship with NCHS is a key collaboration for our broader work in pediatrics."
As part of the engagement, the Veta Health platform will be expanding on the existing digital management of select NCHS pediatric patients through behavior-based engagement strategies that include tailored health assessments, specific treatment benchmarks, and visibility into personal health trends and data. Utilizing Veta Health in this capacity will afford the facility a greater streamlining of workflows and a reduction in administrative efforts surrounding patient management.
"Since implementing the Veta Health platform with epilepsy and cystic fibrosis cases, we've experienced a greater connection with those patients and their families through the real-time updates the system provides to our clinicians," said Edward Martinez, senior VP and CIO of Nicklaus Children's Health System. "The platform has also streamlined our administrative practices when applicable by providing insight into patient needs."
Early indications show that patients were motivated to manage their health through the Veta Health platform and to reap the benefits of the increased transparency with clinicians. During the initial roll out, a majority of seizure disorder patients using the app maintained a seizure diary that is transmitted directly to their care teams. Also of note, 80 percent of patients responded to medication reminders in the app.
