Eocene offers healthcare organizations a ubiquitous platform to manage their patients in the most desired and cost effective environment, their residential home. Improved patient engagement can result in better disease prevention, by giving patients the tools to self-monitor and change behavior; greater treatment success, based on increased compliance with lifestyle changes and therapy; and better clinical decision making, as a result of more information sharing between the patient and clinician.
Clinical Portal – Eocene Dashboard
Eocene Systems’ offers a HIPAA compliant web based contingency architecture available on a secure platform and by permission basis. The web portal has an icon based dashboard, which makes it user friendly and easy for clinicians to navigate and quickly find pertinent patient information. The health cloud enables care givers to access on-demand historical diagnostic test results and calculated patient reports, providing better treatment decisions and overall communication with the patient at the time of service. . Being able to review complete and accurate historical test results will help educate the patient and allow them to identify trends and habits that may lead to unwarranted complications and exacerbations.
Ros Patient Centric Medical Home
In a true Patient Centric Medical Home, the physician makes treatment decisions together with patients based on individual preferences. They help patients become better engaged in their own healthy behaviors and healthcare. Eocene provides an avenue for clinicians and care givers to works as a team and automate their care plan on a venue that patients welcome with open arms, their existing TV. Eocene allows the care team to provide constant messaging and reminders of upcoming daily activities including medication adherence, physical fitness routines, wellness and education videos, doctor appts, etc. Eocene alows the care team to become part of the patients life and interact directly through their TV.
Case managers feel a large burden in the new connected health environment when it comes to performing their part in communicating with patients. Many healthcare professionals feel they experience an information overload and cannot manage the amount of information received. The Eocene platform has designed within the contingency architecture, automated messaging capabilities that enable case managers to leverage technology in their delivery and access of healthcare. Most episodic events go unnoticed or not addressed simply because there are more pressing or higher cost scenarios monopolizing their resources and attention. Case managers can create their own automated triage of events, that not only enables them to delivery consistent messaging with documented read receipts from the patient, but allows them to touch the patient based on exception, even when it is something minor. This provides case managers latitude to focus on more severe situations and events that warrant their personal touch.
The Test-n-Share health cloud is a HIPAA compliant web based contingency architecture available on a permission basis to anyone the patient authorizes. Members of the patient’s healthcare team, family or friends will receive unrestricted, unlimited access to on demand historical patient diagnostic test results, as well as elect to receive trending or acute episodic event notifications based on exceptions. Being able to review complete and accurate historical test results will help educate not only the patient, but everyone involved with helping to manage their chronic conditions.
The Physician Fee Schedule has continued to decrease reimbursements for traditional “fee for service”, but has balanced the reductions by introducing or expanding reimbursements for telemedicine in order to migrate providers towards their value based payment reform. The intent of any healthcare organization is to improve quality of care for each patient within its set population. With telemedicine tools, patients can theoretically engage a physician or care coordinator anytime, anywhere. They are not limited by distance; cost or time spent driving to and from appointments. However, connecting with patients outside of the office visit, and providing ongoing access and transparency to care and support resources, is challenging, particularly when it requires coordination between patients, physicians, clinical staff and third party resources. To meet consumer demands, Eocene has a revolutionary platform that enables new ways to connect with patients and deliver value-add information in a cost effective, easy to access and simple manner—and in a way that maintains consistency and continuity throughout the entire treatment process.
Modifying patient behavior is challenging, but maintaining the patients motivation and keeping them engaged over time may be even more difficult. Gamification is a term used to reward patients for adherence to their prescribed treatment plan. Not all patients react the same to any particular reward. Eocene has Gamification technology built into the architecture and enables any healthcare organization to create a myriad of rewards to offer to their patients. Each population can be divided into sub groups that are driven by different rewards, whether it be monetary, entertainment, gifts, and the like. Gamification is pinnacle to keeping patients engaged and having a successful population health management program.
Connected Diagnostic Devices
Health care increasingly is subject to demands for improved health and quality of life. Eocene home diagnostics aid in responding to such demands by enabling accurate detection of health risks and disease at earlier stages and improving treatment and disease management, while diminishing subsequent health problems and their associated costs. Eocene provides accurate diagnostics which serve a key role in the health value chain by influencing the quality of patient care, health outcomes and downstream resource requirements.
Eocene connected diagnostics have evolved with our understanding of biological systems and disease, along with advances in science and technology. Emerging today are entirely new categories of diagnostics, based on full continuum of care and personalized medicine approaches. As such connected products mature, clinicians and patients will be better able to assess the risks and benefits of care options and customized health management strategies to optimize individual health and quality of life.
Eocene Arm Blood Pressure Monitor
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and disability world-wide. Managing your blood pressure is the most important risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Reducing blood pressure by lifestyle interventions is pinnacle in preventing strokes, heart failure and coronary heart disease.
Eocene Infrared Ear & Body Thermometer
Compared with the younger population, the elderly have increased susceptibility to infection and are at significantly increased risk for morbidity and mortality due to many common infections. Infections in the elderly, similar to other acute illnesses in this age group, may present in atypical, non-classical fashions.
Eocene Bluetooth Weight Scale
Weight gain is used by healthcare providers as a marker of heart failure decompensation. Increases in body weight are associated with hospitalization for heart failure and begin at least 1 week before admission. Daily information about patients’ body weight identifies a high-risk period during which interventions to avert decompensated heart failure that necessitates hospitalization may be beneficial.
Eocene Glucose Analyzer
We know that diabetes is not simply a metabolic disease that changes the body’s ability to make and utilize insulin. It’s also a disease of the vascular system, as excess glucose (sugar) in the blood damages blood vessels. Complicating matters further, older adults with diabetes have a higher risk of heart attack, stroke, renal disease, eye disease, and death than their younger counterparts.
Eocene Medication Adherence Reminder
Medications are arguably the single most important health care technology to prevent illness, disability, and death in the older population. Of all age groups, older persons with chronic diseases and conditions benefit the most from taking medications.
