ATLANTA – Honeywell Life Care Solutions has upgraded its telehealth software, introducing LifeStream 5.2 for home health agencies, patients, payers, employers and health care systems.
The newest version of the LifeStream software enables clinicians to remotely monitor chronically ill patients, improving their quality of care and clinical outcomes, while reducing healthcare costs.
“The launch of LifeStream 5.2 marks a significant milestone for Honeywell in bringing premier telehealth solutions that address the need to deliver greater value in healthcare at less cost,” said John Bojanowski, president of Life Care Solutions, Honeywell Home and Building Technologies, in a statement.
Honeywell’s LifeStream software powers the Life Care Solutions suite of telehealth solutions, which helps clinicians manage their telehealth programs. The latest version includes: a streamlined user interface and a mobile platform; an improved patient dashboard that allows clinicians to view expanded patient snapshots, prioritize patient care, respond to vital sign readings and more efficiently evaluate patient trends; advanced scheduling and reporting features; and enhanced default system settings.
LifeStream 5.2 has received clearance from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
“Honeywell telehealth solutions have been effective in reducing onsite visits, allowing us to connect directly with valued patients in their home, while also improving clinical outcomes,” said Lynnell Hornbeck, manager of home health at MultiCare Health System, which uses the LifeStream software, in a statement.
