WASHINGTON, Aug. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ViiMed®, the personalized care coaching and coordination platform, today announced it will exhibit at Greenway Health ENGAGE16 August 10-13 in Atlanta. Experts will be on hand to discuss how ViiMed's EXTEND software can help connect patients and care teams, including those in bundled care programs like total joint surgery.
Visitors to ViiMed's booth (301-302) will receive a free portable phone charger just for registering for a brief, self-guided demo that walks users through a patient experience using EXTEND. Those who complete the demo will also be entered into a drawing to receive a FitBit Charge HR. In the demo, participants can test out the side-by-side video recorder that helps doctors remotely monitor a patient's recovery following surgery. Practices interested in purchasing the product can sign up the first physician free for one year, with each additional physician receiving a 30-day free trial.
As health care organizations turn to alternative payment models around value-based care, ViiMed helps by connecting the right care team members at the right time. Patients receive education and coaching prior to surgery, and work closely with their care team throughout recovery to reduce complications. For those affected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)'s new Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model, EXTEND can also help improve overall quality metrics for reporting.
"We're excited to speak with some of the industry's leading practices at Greenway Health ENGAGE16," said Phil Newman, founder and CEO of ViiMed. "In a time when many struggle to keep up with regulatory demands, we're eager to help navigate those challenges, especially around bundled payment models like CJR. Care coordination technology can play a huge role in driving better communication between all care team members and the patient, reducing readmission rates, making providers more efficient, and delivering better patient outcomes."
As a Greenway Health Marketplace vendor, ViiMed software integrates quickly and easily with Greenway electronic health records, saving care coordinators time and energy.
