PHOENIX – Digital health startup Life365 has teamed up with population health management company Catalytic Health Partners to provide remote patient monitoring for CHP members with chronic conditions in Arizona.
Life365 is a digital health as-a-service platform that serves as a single connection point between third-party digital health solutions and a client’s systems. It also features a patient and family portal, as well as an enterprise analytics portal.
“By combining technology with our data analytics system, we are able to provide a care model to our members that was missing in the marketplace,” said Susan Cordts, CHP CEO and co-founder.
CHP gives its members health tablets with cellular connectivity that serve as both the wireless connectivity to the Life365 back-end system and an interface where patients can view their biometric health readings and self-monitor.
Life365 is powering CHP with technology to remotely monitor their members between face-to-face visits, allowing it to better pinpoint members that may need intervention and leading to better management of their chronic diseases and reduced utilization of health services.
“As a startup company, having users on the platform and revenue is exciting, because it helps us demonstrate traction and validate our system,” said Kendall Hill, marketing manager and co-founder of Life365. “Catalytic is doing something really cool, as well, because the patients they work with are very high-cost patients, and by reducing their health care costs, CHP shares in the cost savings.”
CHP initially rolled out Life365’s remote monitoring service to their members in Tuscon. They plan to expand throughout Arizona later this year.
