Neptune, New Jersey, February 12, 2013 —iMPak Health, a subsidiary of Meridian Health, today announced a white labeling agreement with HealthSaaS for their Connected Outcomes Platform. This agreement will enhance iMPak’s device offerings by bringing patient data into the clinical workflow as an asset while reducing manual data entry and providing actionable information to healthcare providers.
“We are excited to work with a visionary company like iMPak Health to develop mobile applications and facilitate an innovative use of the HealthSaaS Platform, says Frank Ille, CEO, HealthSaaS.
iMPak Health has also selected HealthSaaS to assist in the ongoing development of mobile applications to forward patient data from biometric medical devices and pass this data to the soon to be announced iMPak Connect Portal. Once data is passed to the iMPak Connect Portal, patient specific data can be securely shared with all types of electronic health records (EHR) systems.
“The HealthSaaS Connected Outcomes Platform will enable iMPak Health to not only provide consumer centric devices, but to offer solution based information to the clinicians in an actionable manner,” says Sandra Elliott, director, Consumer Technology and Service Development, Meridian Health. “The ability to provide a low cost, end-to-end solution will ultimately create the most value for providers and patients.”
The first device to utilize HealthSaaS developed mobile apps and the iMPak Connect Portal will be the newly launched medication management system, Kraken.
Kraken is the iMPak Health solution to medication monitoring in the digital age, a unique, user friendly alternative allowing patients and physicians to organize, track and outline prescription schedules freely and accurately. With Kraken, iMPak Health aims to simplify medication management -including medication sorting, patient reminders,
patient compliance and symptom tracking - necessary in the increasing push toward "performance based" payment initiatives.
“The iMPak Connect solution will make it easier to collect, aggregate, integrate and visualize data,” added Ille. Visualized data provides clinicians with actionable
information which allows them to be more proactive in the monitoring of treatment regimens while reducing readmissions, improving patient outcomes and lowering costs”.
