NEWBURY PARK, Calif., Aug. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, health care providers are embracing new technologies to provide a better understanding of the key issues that can effect wellness. The ForaCare Telehealth System is a comprehensive yet flexible solution which facilitates superior chronic disease management. It enables timely communication between patients and care providers that allows for the necessary adjustments that may prevent hospitalization. Doctors understand the more data points you have on an individual, the more you increase the accuracy of the diagnosis. This leads to more accurate treatment and a higher likely hood of increased wellness. For this very reason, Inland Empire Health Plan chose ForaCare products, including ForaCare blood glucose and blood pressure monitoring systems, TeleHealth Gateway and ForaCare Telehealth System. Providing a "Total Patient Management Solution" with the ability to track key data points including time of day, pre & post meal records, doctor recommendations, blood pressure and more. ForaCare products offer impressive features including speaking function in both English and Spanish, easy to use test reminders and alarm settings can help patients ensure they remember to take tests on a daily basis. ForaCare also produces test strips for the devices. Slightly wider and easier to handle for individuals that have manual dexterity issues, the ForaCare V30a meter takes this one step further, and includes a test strip ejector button. This allows ease of use and the ability to eject the strip without actually coming in contact with the strip. This is perfect for individuals that help or serve the end user, not wanting to come in contact with the used strip. Inland Empire Health Plan chose ForaCare for the innovative new designs as they continue to look to the future for the best technologies as they provide value to the individuals they serve. The comprehensive ForaCare solution including test strip accuracy approaching plus or minus 15% will help Inland Empire Health Plan in its goal to better serve their members.
