ForaCare will present its complete telehealth solution at next week’s California Telehealth Resource Center’s 2019 Telehealth Summit as well as two evidence-based case studies that support improved health outcomes because of ForaCare’s complete solution.
ForaCare’s complete solution is comprised of a range of FORA® devices that connect to the FORA 24/7 HealthView Telehealth System. The glucometers, blood pressure meters, pulse oximeters, thermometers and weight scales provide quick and accurate results on a large LCD display making it easy to read. Many FORA devices speak the results, too.
With multiple options to connect from the device to the telehealth software, providers can choose the ForaCare solution that works best for them and their patients. Cellular devices connect to the 24/7 HealthView telehealth software directly, while Bluetooth meters connect to a mobile app before uploading data to the telehealth software. The Gateway serves to upload data from the device to the telehealth software, which is especially useful if a patient uses multiple devices.
COPD patients in Florida who were part of the Telehealth After COPD Hospitalization Study, for example, used the Gateway to upload blood glucose, blood pressure and weight information from their devices to the telehealth software automatically. The study, which will be featured at the summit, measured the effect of telehealth and home visits on COPD patients after hospitalization, resulting in a 5% readmission rate instead of the 13–20% national average.
The second study that will be highlighted at the summit was conducted by the Medical University of South Carolina. They monitored diabetes patients over six months and found that those who used the FORA 2-in-1 blood glucose and blood pressure device showed a 0.99% decrease in HbA1c compared to the control group.
