Recently Funded Tyto Care Brings Handheld Telehealth Device to Light

Posted: August 4th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Basics, In the News, Telehealth, Venture funding | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , | No Comments »

With a fresh Series B financing round of $11 million, Israeli-based telemedicine startup Tyto Care is putting its own unique spin on the diagnostic device market. Backed by strategic investors like Cambia Health Solutions and Walgreens, Tyto Care is discussing its innovative product–deemed the “Swiss Army knife of handheld diagnostic devices”–with a number of digital health news resources.

Tyto Care’s solution combines a handheld device and online communication platform that is designed to facilitate secure and seamless interactions between patient and provider. The diagnostic handheld device can aid non-medical individuals (namely parents) in examining a child’s mouth, throat, eyes, heart sounds, lung sounds, temperature, skin and ears when traveling to the doctor’s office for an in-person visit is not possible. Doctors can conveniently guide users in performing these tests in real time or a “store and forward” method can be applied, whereby a doctor receives the results collected by Tyto Care’s device for remote viewing.

Tyto Care was co-founded by Dedi Gilad and Ofer Tzadik in 2012, with the goal of providing “connected examination technology” beyond the scope of just phone or video conferencing to patients and providers alike. After this third round of funding, Tyto Care is believed to have raised $18.5 million to date and final device approval from the US Food and Drug Administration is expected to be granted within the calendar year.

“The Facebook Treatment:” Boston’s Latest Patient Engagement Study

Posted: July 24th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Basics, In the News, Telehealth | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , | No Comments »

“Time to check Facebook, it’s good for your health.” Most of us have never heard these words uttered by a physician–and if we did, confusing looks would likely ensue. But in the heart of Boston, Partners HealthCare is showing us that social media–specifically, the ever-popular Facebook–may positively impact young adults with health issues.

At Partners HealthCare in Boston, preliminary results of a study involving asthmatic teenagers found significant improvement in engagement and symptom control when patients received reminders and encouragement from both clinicians and researchers via Facebook. Dr. Joseph Kvedar, Vice President of Connected Health at Partners HealthCare, presented these early stage findings at the mHealth + Telehealth World Conference in Boston this week and stated that a peer-reviewed publication for this study is in the works.

The Study

Partners Connected Health (formerly known as the Center for Connected Health) joined forces with Massachusetts General Hospital’s Department of Pulmonology to create a private Facebook group for pediatric asthma patients ages 14-17. Partners provided the private group, only viewable by invited users, with access to a password-protected website where study participants could take the Asthma Control Test (ACT), a survey measuring asthma control.

Clinicians and academic researchers sent monthly reminders–with links to the ACT–along with educational information to each study participant via Facebook. The alerts were displayed just like any other Facebook reminder, making them salient and easy to access. After a 12-month period, Partners Connected Health achieved a 79% engagement rate with approximately 125 teen participants in the Facebook group–compared to an average engagement rate of around 18% with the ACT alone.

Patient engagement is a vital component of the treatment process and DoseSpot strives to improve engagement for dental, medical and telehealth/digital health software companies alike! Contact us today to learn more about how DoseSpot’s e-Prescribing platform can lead to increased patient engagement and effective treatment plans.

“Protecting the pill:” Johns Hopkins students develop tamper-proof, biometric pill bottle

Posted: July 1st, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Basics, Controlled Substances, In the News, Security, Standards | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , | No Comments »

Over the past few years, prescription drug abuse has been a heated topic here in the U.S. among healthcare professionals and policymakers alike. Engineering students within Johns Hopkins University’s Whiting School of Engineering are taking strides to address continuously alarming drug abuse statistics with the creation of a novel, tamper-proof pill bottle.

As cited in HIStalk Connect’s article, the engineering students were called upon by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health to undertake this special project. With more than 16,000 annual deaths attributed to prescription drug-related overdoses, the goal of Hopkins’ project was to develop a robust pill bottle that would help control the nation’s relatively unsecured supply of prescription narcotics. According to assistant professor at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Kavi Bhalla, the overseeing team wanted “this personal pill ‘safe’ to have tamper resistance, personal identification capabilities and a locking mechanism that allows only a pharmacist to load the device with pills.”

The four engineering undergrads assigned to take on this project answered accordingly–by developing a 2.75 pound, nine-inch-tall, steel-constructed pill bottle that can withstand any hammer or drill activity. Additionally, fingerprint scanners are used to regulate dispensing and ensure that pills are only released to the patient a medication is prescribed to–at proper time intervals and in correct doses. After gaining positive feedback from both Bloomberg clinicians and pharmacists at the on-campus Rite Aid, Hopkins engineering students uncovered an important and overlooked design value: the ability to record medication adherence rates. If connected to a monitoring system, the tamper-proof pill bottle (again, equipped with fingerprint reading capabilities) could eventually be useful to payers and health systems working to reduce funds wasted on poor medication adherence.

For healthcare software companies looking to incorporate the ability to electronically prescribe controlled substances (EPCS), DoseSpot could be your solution of choice in just a few hours, days or weeks! Through our third party EPCS audit with Drummond Group Inc., a global software test and certification body that is approved by the Drug Enforcement Administration to audit EPCS software applications, DoseSpot is now able to deliver audited and trusted EPCS software applications to customers.
