‘mHealth is a huge opportunity for us to be as close to the patient as possible’
ATLANTA – Mobile telehealth and remote patient monitoring company SynsorMed is seeking strategic partnerships to reach patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The company recently announced a partnership with oxygen delivery equipment manufacturer CAIRE Inc. that created “CAIREview powered by SynsorMed,” a mobile solution to monitor patient conditions outside of the hospital by connecting a patient’s oxygen concentrator to a customized dashboard and mobile app.
“We’re right there in that key space,” said Theo Harvey, co-founder of SynsorMed. “mHealth technology is a huge opportunity for us to be as close to the patient as possible.”
SynsorMed’s platform encourages patient engagement and compliance by combining telehealth, remote patient monitoring and machine learning. A mobile app connects to health monitoring devices in the home, collecting and analyzing data to give a complete picture of a patient’s health status.
SynsorMed is also seeking partnerships with health systems and clinicians, and is considering integrating a voice-enabled notification engine to its platform.
“In health care, it can seem like you’re going back in time when it comes to technology,” he said. “There was some initial hesitation by providers as telehealth solutions were just taking off, but we’re starting to see a shift as the newness is wearing off and mobile devices are becoming ubiquitous.”
