Today, 25.8 million Americans have diabetes and one in three American adults have hypertension, representing 77.9 million. In order for these millions of patients to manage their disease, they should take regular measurements of their vital signs (i.e. blood sugar, blood pressure, pulse readings), as recommended by their physicians.
The current methods, (usually a longitudinal paper log) for capturing vital sign measurements are cumbersome, inconvenient and don’t offer any type of direct connection between patients and physicians. In most cases the collected information doesn’t get sorted out perhaps until their next office visit which may be 3 months away, which may diminish the ability of the physician to offer timely services.
DCA’s innovative CheckMyVitals “mobile health app” replaces those paper logs and establishes a live streaming communication system directly into the physician’s office. V’s has been designed for use with any mobile handheld phone, tablet or PC and now provides a patient or family member, with an easy and secure way to transmit self-collected blood pressure, blood sugar, and heart rate values directly to their healthcare provider in real-time anytime from anywhere. An additional “On line” feature is two-way direct messaging which enables patients and health providers to freely exchange meaningful information thereby accelerating the time to treatment while advancing the quality of care.
Another important value of using CheckMyVitals is that it enables patients to instantly feel empowered to manage their own disease. Patients quickly learn the cause and effect of their readings as it relates to their disease along with the value of testing accurately and often. When patients and physicians use CheckMyVitals, a two-way system of communication between the patient and provider is achieved, which fosters teamwork, quality care, informed communication, and accurate treatment for improved disease management between the patient and physician.
The world is going digital. Why should healthcare be left behind? Remote patient monitoring is not the future; it is already happening in the present time.
CheckMyVitals® is a 360-degree healthcare solution for advanced remote patient management. Started in 2006 by Dr. R. A. Ramanujan and Dr. Anu Banerjee, the app is currently used by more than 3000 patients daily.
