Problem (i.e. barrier, issue, complication, etc.) being solved for the end user
Problems facing our customers: Physician and nurse burn out resulting in deceased staffing and decreased appointments and thus reduced revenues. Adoption of telehealth and providing virtual visits. high risk practice, value based medicine contracts with reduced appointment adherence place more pressure on the health care provider, increase stress and burnout. Unprecedented Ob-gyn's shortage, leading to reduced care access, shorter appointments and “fast” care, leading to poor maternal-infant outcomes.
Idea/solution to the problem, if applicable
Serving many clinical partners, we can increase appointment adherence, maternal education, nutritional support, diabetic education, after hour care that will reduce ER utilization, reduce you provider’s burnout and improve care coordination. Our telemonitoring system, embedded in the patient chart that can support remote monitoring of weight, blood glucose, blood sugars and more. These features can improve blood sugar and blood pressure control of your patient while improving your billing for these services.
