NEW YORK, May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fitango Health, Inc., a leading provider of Population Health Management platform, released its innovative telemedicine module today at the 2016 American Telemedicine Association (ATA) Conference in Minneapolis, MN. The module facilitates telemedicine visits while providing patient engagement and care management, extending its comprehensive Population Health Management platform.
With Fitango Health, care providers can receive real-time clinical data when patients report on vital measurements, and may opt to receive alerts between appointments. This enables remote providers to intervene as necessary and address health issues before they escalate.
"Over the last few years, telemedicine has become an affordable option for medical care in rural settings," stated Dr. Dov Biran, CEO of Fitango Health, "We'd like to see this move toward mainstream usage, and extend the service to people wherever they are, whether they are chronic or preventive care patients."
During a telemedicine appointment through Fitango Health, patients and providers can connect using a full suite of services including multi-point video, voice and chat. Providers will be able to review data and measurements with the patient, and quickly create custom Action Plans, Medication Plans and Care Plans in response to patient needs.
The Fitango Health suite helps patients better understand and be more involved in their health through a range of engagement mechanisms that are competitive, social and fun. Compliance tools track adherence to medications and personal plans, and points can be awarded for positive behaviors. Patients can invite family and friends to act as Motivators, allowing them to receive alerts when they are non-compliant with their plans. Motivators can then reinforce the importance of adherence before more serious consequences arise. Fitango also helps providers to understand and address the ever-changing health of their patient populations with the platform's analytics and outreach capabilities.
