PLANO, Texas – BrightLife Services is almost ready to launch a new technology for seniors and patients with chronic conditions that connects multiple home health devices to an all-in-one remote monitoring platform.
As a strategic partner and customer of Sensogram Technologies, BrightLife Services is integrating the Sensoscan vitals tracker and Vital Band fall detection smart watch into the platform. It will also incorporate other devices like Bluetooth scales, glucose monitors, smart pill caps and more.
“They’re bringing all the necessary elements together to make virtual care as good as, or better, than an office visit,” said Pete Ianace, corporate development board member of Sensogram Technologies.
BrightLife Services is a device-agnostic home health platform featuring a 10-inch tablet as its hub. The tablet connects to most digital health devices and features artificial intelligence technology, audio/video and voice capabilities, health care and lifestyle apps, and customized educational content for the user’s condition.
The platform connects to a call center for emergencies, as well as to a network of some 9,000 partner health care providers so users get a dedicated care team.
The new platform is expected to launch on June 1.
Ianace said the announcement that Medicare will begin reimbursing physicians for telehealth visits has opened up the market for remote monitoring.
“Remote care hasn’t been effective in the past because there was no way for doctors to be compensated to treat patients at home,” he said. “Now you’re probably going to see 10 more companies doing this kind of service in the next year.”
BrightLife Services will be offered directly to consumers at different levels on a monthly subscription basis—no long-term contracts. The company will send a representative to the user’s home to install and set up the equipment, and then it’s ready go.
