Making Sense of Sensors
Sentrian's predictive analytics platform brings a new paradigm to the rapidly growing market for remote patient monitoring, enabling healthcare payers and providers to exponentially scale their use of remote bio-sensors for managing whole populations of patients with chronic disease.
The Sentrian RPI platform – which is not yet approved for commercial distribution by the US Food & Drug Administration – is designed to keep chronically ill patients out of the hospital by spotting problems in the critical early stages when interventions are less invasive, cheaper, and more likely to succeed. Care managers in Medicare Advantage plans and other healthcare organizations can use the Sentrian RPI platform to affordably increase the reach and effectiveness of their disease management programs.
Sentrian will accept the award at the ATA Annual International Meeting & Trade Show – the premier forum for healthcare professionals and entrepreneurs in the telemedicine, telehealth and mHealth space – held May 2-5, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
