"It is an honor to unveil our fully integrated mobile solution for collaborative care before industry leaders who are working together to transform healthcare by delivering the tools patients need to become truly engaged in the management of their health and wellness."GenerationOne was selected to showcase its healthcare solution during the Symposium's Innovator Showcase. Don Rosen, Chief Technology Officer, GenerationOne, demonstrated how, by using advanced scripts and disease management protocols co-developed with leading U.S. medical and academic institutions, the Mobile Health Solution guides and monitors individuals throughout their daily routines. Rosen highlighted how the GenerationOne solution was designed for ease-of-use by consumers, providing them with just-in-time health information and reminders customized to their specific needs and conditions.
The GenerationOne Mobile Health Solution alerts individuals to take medications or perform other prescribed activities like testing blood glucose or blood pressure. The results of these actions are then collected wirelessly from medical devices and/or through mobile phone interactions with individuals. The information is automatically analyzed and stored in online personal health records.
GenerationOne's proprietary technology enables pre-set triggers that are programmed to determine if the GenerationOne On-Call Nursing Service, or an authorized physician or caregiver, should be alerted.
GenerationOne's flexible technology platform allows health plans and employers to launch the Mobile Health Solution as a new program or integrate it into existing disease management and wellness programs to drive improved results. Services can be delivered through GenerationOne's specially-designed health phone, which is optimized for transmission of health information, or integrated with consumers' existing compatible phones. Packages available through GenerationOne's robust voice and data network can be tailored to include incentives to drive consumer adoption and regular use of the Mobile Health Solution.
