Janus Health Introduces JanusOS(SM): First Technology-Enabled Mobile Patient Management Solution to Support Physician Housecalls
Janus Health, pioneering developer of mobile technologies that enable housecall medical practices, has premiered JanusOSSM, the first patent-protected mobile patient management system that provides the tools and services physicians need to bring top-quality care directly to the home.
The JanusOSSM solution streamlines and supports all primary housecall practice functions, including:
Paperless, Wireless Patient Care Management, and
JanusOSSM is tablet PC and laptop-compatible and runs all standard WindowsÃ® and OfficeÃ® applications. Housecall medical groups and solo practitioners are charged for the JanusOSSM service on a per-housecall basis.
Janus Health's Founder and Medical Director C. Gresham Bayne, M.D., a veteran housecall practitioner, explained, "There's a growing movement of physicians who are revolutionizing the healthcare industry by bringing high-quality healthcare back to patients, right in their homes."
The company's CEO, James Collins, added, "The people of Janus Health have two decades of housecall experience behind them in multiple cities. We have faced the problems, learned the solutions, and developed the wireless communications and advanced data storage infrastructure that meet the unique requirements of housecall practices today."
JanusOSSM equips solo practitioners and medical group housecall clinicians with a complete mobile patient management system that features:
Real-time scheduling of housecall visits
Paperless patient information and document management
Wireless access to unified email, voice mail and communications
Electronic retrieval of lab outcomes and analysis
Electronic ordering of prescriptions, services, tests and consultations
Portable medical device implementation and support
Real-time updating of patient records
Centralized administration and storage of patient information
Billing compliance, HIPAA compliance and complete audit trails
Round-the-clock IT and operational support, 365 days a year
In the area of mobile diagnostics, JanusOSSM supports a range of portable medical devices including X-ray (digital and analog); cardiac monitoring; pulse oximeters, lab analyzers, ultrasound and EKG machines.
JanusOSSM helps medical groups and solo housecall practitioners care for patients who lack convenient access to the traditional doctor's office setting. Seniors and disabled individuals who reside at home or in assisted-living facilities, for example, can benefit from the emerging technology-enabled housecall practice movement.
Medicare reimbursement levels for home-based physician care have increased, which helps make housecall practices a viable business model, particularly for medical groups that want to expand their revenue base while decreasing office overhead. Uniquely, Janus Health charges clinicians on a per visit basis, so there is limited capital investment required.
