Our telehealth solutions provide in-home patient vital signs monitoring systems and services to improve care for patients and reduce the cost of care by delivering results to their healthcare providers via the Internet. Our telehealth solutions combine our Electronic House Call™ patient vital signs monitoring appliances or our Interactive Voice Response patient vital signs monitoring solution with a web-based management and monitoring software module based on our Inscrybe® Healthcare platform. Both solutions enable unattended measurements of patients' vital signs and related health information and are designed to aid wellness and preventative care, and deliver better care to specific patient segments who require regular monitoring of medical conditions. Healthcare providers can easily view each specific patient's vital statistics and make adjustments to the patient's care plans securely via the Internet. This service provides a combination of care plan schedule reminders and comprehensive disease management education as well as intelligent routing to alert on-duty caregivers whenever a patient's vital signs are outside of the practitioner's pre-set ranges. Healthcare providers and health insurers are also expected to benefit by having additional tools to improve patient care, and reduce overall in-person and emergency room patient visits.
We currently operate our business in the U.S. with technology and service offerings that address emerging growth opportunities based on the regulatory and legal requirements specific to each market. Our business is engaged in the development and sale of web-based services largely based on our Inscrybe® platform and related capabilities and telehealth services featuring our Electronic House Call, Interactive Voice Response and related products and services. In recent years we have focused our efforts on developing and introducing solutions for use in the healthcare information technology industry.
We believe there are a number of factors that will be favorable for the healthcare information technology industry in the near future, despite the lingering weakness in the global economy. These factors include on-going regulatory reforms in the U.S. focused on controlling costs, automating medical records and processes and expanding the availability of healthcare coverage, and healthcare industry trends to significantly reduce costs, shorten the length of hospital stays, reduce hospital readmissions, shift patient care towards wellness and preventative care programs and automate healthcare records and processes. Because healthcare information technology solutions play an important role in healthcare by improving safety, efficiency and reducing cost, they are often viewed as more strategic than other capital purchases. In addition, government agencies, as well as politicians and policymakers appear to agree that the growing cost of our healthcare system is unsustainable and the intelligent use of information systems will improve health outcomes and, correspondingly, drive down costs. The broad recognition that healthcare information technology is essential to help control healthcare costs and improve quality contributed to the inclusion of healthcare information technology incentives in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and accompanying Health Information Technology for
