TORONTO – Tunstall Healthcare and TELUS Health have developed the ICP Integrated Care Platform for patients with chronic diseases. The platform uses remote monitoring and videoconferencing telehealth software to allow patients to self-manage their condition and avoid hospital admissions. “Creating tools that allow patients to partner with their caregivers to manage their own health is a foundational step in our pursuit of a fully integrated health care ecosystem,” said Dr. Michael Guerriere, chief medical officer of TELUS Health, in a statement. By enabling patients to track and upload their own vital signs from home, the TELUS Home Health Monitoring solution powered by ICP, allows virtual care teams to monitor biometrics in real-time and intervene before a health issue arises, regardless of where they are located. “With the growing numbers of citizens living with long-term conditions and increased expectations of care delivery, health care providers are under continued pressure to deliver new models of care and improve patient outcomes through the adoption of technology-enabled care systems such as ICP,” said Gordon Sutherland, CEO of Tunstall Healthcare Group, in a statement.
